Hi, Maddy. You have a Float-A-Way door. At this time, we only have the 21-033 threaded pins with a nylon cap, and the 21-035 pins without the cap. For the spring-loaded guide pins, we only have the nylon caps, 21-104 and 21-107.

A home owner from Florida says:
Thank you so much for your help. So you don't have the spring loaded pins for the top only cap?

Yes, that is correct. We are still searching but haven't had any luck.

Let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you!

A home owner from Florida says:
Yes Paul thanks for your repond. I took down the rest of the doors and notice that the hardware are slightly different. thanks God I havent place the order. Lol
this is the other door, not sure if I can use the same hardware you previously told me or if for this door are different. Also if you can advise me about re using the pivot or if I need to change it all. Thanks looks forward to hearing from you soon!

This one is a very old Slimfold bi-fold door. Don't mix up the parts with the other door, because they come from two totally different companies! For the threaded pivot pin, you can use 21-001, and for the other three guide pins, use 21-065.

A home owner from Florida says:
Thank you so much for all your help. Dew La more confident on re- usimg my door.
A home owner from Florida says:

I was out of town and didn't have a chance to put up the hardware. I finally started but pin caps are not the right size. They fit big. These images show the size of the pins that the door had. I place my order based on the suggestion I received on my previous conversation with you.

Thanks! The door pins in these photos are for the old Slimfold doors. The threaded pin should be our 21-001, and for the spring loaded guide pin I'd recommend our 21-065. The nylon cap you're showing does look like our 21-107, but they no longer make them with a larger inside diameter. Which door are you using these nylon caps?

A home owner from Florida says:
Hi- I have 4 of this doors, the pivots are all good all I need is to replace the caps. the one I order diden't fit.

I believe you're talking about the 21-106 bifold cap, whose inside diameter is 3/16". We also have the 21-100 nylon cap with a 1/4" inside diameter, would that work?
