Guide pins

A handy person from Jacksonville FL says:
I have a two 20 plus yr old 29 1/2 X 78" (actual), 1-1/8 wide steel frame bi-fold mirror door made by Monarch. I'm looking for the top and bottom post that were 1/4-20 x 1-1/4 long that went into a 3/4" wide track. The door frame has press fitted 1/2-20 nuts for the posts to screw into which can be remover if needed to reveal a 6/16th ish hole or use an empty hole right next to it. Lots of room inside the door. I can provide photos if needed. The doors are in great shape and would hate to install 2 new sets. Thanks John

Good afternoon, John. To get started, upload a few quick photos of your pins so we can take a look. This will give us a better idea of what you'll be able to use as a replacement.

In the meantime, you can take a look at our Bifold Door Pin Assemblies section.
A quick learner says:
Hi Mike, I uploaded some pictures and I hope they help. I browsed through the assemblies but get confused as to what could work for my type of door. I'm sure that I can use one of the ones you offer, but need some help.

Good afternoon, John.

You may want to consider the Swisco 23-122 Top Guide or the Swisco 23-121 Top Guide as a replacement.

Hi Mike. Thanks for getting back to me. I think that the items you recommend will work and ordered 2 of each. Thank you so much for the help. I will let you know how it turns out in weeks or so. John
