Florida Home

A quick learner from Florida says:
Just bought a house in FL with older mirrored bifold closet doors. Structurally doors are in good condition however white plastic inserts in tracks are worn and I'm assuming pins should be replaced as well. I obviously need to clean up interior as part of refurbishing project.

Swisco came recommended by a neighbor as a good source for replacement parts although they said they never used dealt with you. Hopefully these pictures will help identify brand of door and parts needed since I can find no brand labeling anywhere on them. The house was built in early '80s

Thanks for writing in. The White Guides in your photos look like our 21-108. They are compatible with a bunch of different types of pins, so if you need new pins as well, we need to see a photo of each out of the door. Specifically, we need to see the complete pin assemblies. We will also need the diameter of both the pins and caps. From there, we should be able to narrow down possible replacements.

So I believe my hinge pins are okay but I'm uncertain how I can tell if they are worn. After spending time reading some other responses I'm guessing that the white guides are worn enough that the pins no longer stay nested in them. I'm also gathering that in order to replace those guides I need to remove the track and slide them in from the end. Would I then snap the pins into the guides by exerting enough force to pop them into place or is this all done prior to inserting the replacement guides into the track?

Perhaps I can be of assistance. Yes, you will need to remove the track to install the 21-108 Nylon Guides. You will need to add some force to snap in the pins into the guide. Let me know if you have any other inquiries.
