Hi there!

This looks like our 81-269 roller but look over our specifications and compare them with yours to see if this matches up to your old part. 

A home owner from Everett, WA says:
Hello, thanks for the info! The 81-269 looks a bit wide. Mine is 0.56" wide at the bottom and 0.73" wide at the top. Maybe I should just drill out the wheel and replace that. Does that generally work? Seems like it's just the wheel failing so might be the best option. In general, can I go with a metal wheel even if the original was plastic? Or do you recommend staying with plastic?
Thanks!

If the housing is in good shape and working order, you can certainly just replace the wheel. See our 81-266 or 81-272 roller and axle kits depending on the diameter of your wheel. You can also view our entire selection of Patio Glass Door Replacement Wheels & Axles here . You could go with either a metal or nylon wheel but if you live near the ocean the salt air will corrode the metal version over time. In that scenario, you would definitely want the nylon wheel.
