SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

very old sliding glass door roller needed

A quick learner from la mirada says:
This is out of a very large mid century sliding glass door. I just moved into a house & this door was removed & swapped out with a 50/50 nasty fake French look slider & now has a 3" step to go over & only opens about 24". Fortunately the huge beautiful old door was on the side of the house & I want it back in. This roller looks to be the reason it was removed as it is toast. It's housing is 2" wide & 1 3/4" tall with the wheel sticking out just about 3/16" from the bottom. No adjustment etc, just a nylon roller in a c shape piece. The wheel itself is about 1 11/16" diameter. The last 2 pics are what it looked like when it was installed & now where it sits outside against the fence. Tracks & everything else look good, only problem looks to be the roller. it sat behind an h shaped piece of aluminum that held it in place

Thank you for your patience in this matter. We don't this kind of housing, but you may be able to replace just the wheels by knocking out the center axle. Start by looking at our 81-116 or 81-236 and seeing if either of these are a match.
