Guide pins

A quick learner from America! says:
I need about 6 of these guide pins so I want to make sure I get it right. Can you help identify the correct pin? As you can see from one of the photos, the current pins (or the broken pins) were 4 1/2 inches long. These are metal doors, fairly old in my estimation. I'm sorry that some of the photos are uploading sideways, hopefully you can see them right-side-up after download.

Hello,

The length is not vital when identifying a bi-fold door pin but knowing the thickness of the pin and getting a better look at the nylon cap, along with its diameter, will give us a much better idea of what could work for you. Also, we'd like to see the threaded adjusting pin and the pivot block in the track to determine which of our replacement parts would be compatible with your hardware. Thank you!

Thanks, Paul. The pin is 6mm in diameter. The part of the nylon cap that sits in the track is 1cm in diameter, the wider brim that holds the spring back is 1.5cm. The track that the cap slides on is 1.2cm wide. I hope this helps, I'm not super familiar with all of the terms but please let me know if there is other information that I can provide to you.

Thanks for including the additional information. If the pins are okay and you need just the nylon caps, take a look at our 21-117 pin cap. They are used with a 5/16" pin. We also have the pin with the spring; see our 21-071 pin and the 5/16" 21-152 grommet.
