Stanley Sliding Mirror Closet Door

A quick learner from Dallas, Texas (Howdy) says:
Are there universal bottom tracks and new rollers that I could replace on my existing Stanley Mirror Sliding Closet Door?

I have never been real impressed with the ones that came on the original door. I put a new wood floor in the bedroom so I had to take out the door and track and then reinstall when I finished the floor. The adjustments seem to be very sensitive and I can't seem to get that easy gliding movement.

I don't know if my floor may be slightly unlevel, but I was hoping if I bought a superior track and roller mechanism, with a little more flexibility, it might be more forgiving and roll easier.

Mine seem to drag no matter how much I try to adjust.

There really aren't any generic door rollers. You may be stuck with the hardware you have now. However, if you were to send us a couple pictures of the rollers in question, we can try to find something better.

Perfect, thank you. You do have older hardware, but I think our 23-041 and 23-242 could possibly replace your roller and track. I'm not sure how much smoother than 23-041 will be, though. Perhaps you could consider our 23-225. This has a ball-bearing wheel, which of course rolls much more smoothly than a non ball-bearing wheel like our 23-041 and your original roller.

My only concern is that the 23-225 is a difference size than the 23-041 and has different hole placements. Looking at your photos, it looks like you only use two screws. Could the hole placement of the 23-225 match these holes? If not, could you drill new ones?
A quick learner from Dallas, Texas (Howdy) says:
Yeah. I think if the ball bearing part is reasonably close to matching what I have, I can and have made modifications on similar projects to make it work.

I think I'd be willing to take the chance.

Would you recommend I get a different bottom track? What about the upper track?

You can stick with the same tracks you have now if they aren't damaged. New tracks aren't really going to make a difference since ours are functionally the same as what you have now.
