A home owner from nashville, tn says:
ASTR BEC OMCO - in a circle on the top

11/16" thick. the roller is 1 1/4" diam.

These rollers are 20 years old. Pictured is the front roller. I assume the trailing roller is the same. I'd like to replace both.

Hey, Joe. Look over our 81-278. I'm confident this is a good match but go over our information and let me know what you think.
A home owner says:
Yessir, that looks like it. I'll order them. Thanks very much. What a relief this will be.

A quick learner from nashville, tn says:
I have to tell you how happy I am to have a patio door that works. For years it got progressively harder to operate as the rollers failed. Two pros told me there were no parts for a 20-year-old aluminum door. Finally, I found SWISCO and you had the rollers we needed. Clear communication, excellent price, and quick service. I installed them, and no more wrestling with the door.

Honestly, this is such a relief. Thanks very much!

Joe, as I said before, it's my sincerest pleasure to help. In my experience, whenever someone says I need to buy a whole new door or window, my first thought is, "Are you sure about that?" We always try our best to find a work around.

Thanks again for your order. If you ever need anything else, feel free to shoot us another inquiry.

Your "pros" are not pros. 20 years is not even old. 50 is starting to get old. Pre 1964 is where you have a lot of non-tempered glass. That's when "old" starts.
