track cap

A quick learner from Fla and NY says:
Hello,

I have a damaged track in my fla home. I didn't realize I had a pic, but I do. Sorry to have the lizard in the shot. Can you tell by looking at the pic which cover will work if either? It appears as though the door rides directly on the track (grooved with roller). Any suggestions?

Good Morning,

We do offer some track covers, like the Swisco 80-103 Sliding Door Track Cover and the 80-100 Track Cover. To install these, you'll have to remove the door and snap the cover over the existing track. Gather a the width and height of your track and compare it to the dimensions of the track covers listed online.
A quick learner says:
right, but my question is, with the way the door is groved to receive the track, will this application work? In other words, is the cap small enough to allow the door to sit on top of it? the "v" shaped cap would work, but it appears to be a fairly shallow and the 9/16" that is required

In my past experiences, I would just compare the height of the track to the height of the track cover (cap). If your track is a little taller than most, you may want to use the 80-100, 9/16". Otherwise, look into using the 80-103, 1/4".
