Good Morning,

Yes, the 81-047 is available with either a vinyl or a stainless steel wheel but they are not available for purchase yet. This style with the vinyl wheel will be available online in about a week or two at the most. The stainless steel will be available online in about a month. I will contact you when each new product is available.
A home owner from St. Croix says:
I purchased them from you about 3 years ago, with vinyl rollers. Did you change them to steel & now back to vinyl?

Are you sure it was the 81-047? The 81-047 was not available online a few years ago. You may have purchased the similar roller 81-038.

Ok, I think your right. I have two different ones, but they both work. The original one has a MBC 1119 stamped on it, with a vinyl wheel. It came from a PGT door. It appears to me that the 81-047 is the correct match for the MBC 1119. Since it had a steel wheel, it was not a good choice because we live on the ocean front. Hurray, the right part with a vinyl wheel! I can't wait!

Thanks for your help.

Yeah, the nylon wheel will be better since you are near the ocean. I will contact you as soon as the nylon wheel for the 81-047 is available.
