bifold metal door hardware repair

A quick learner from Desert Hot Springs, CA says:

What do I need to make this bi-fold door work smoothly?

It scrapes and is difficult to open and close.

Thank you very much.

Mike

I will send pictures of track also. Perhaps that needs replacing too.

Thank you for writing in. Have a look at our 21-072 bi fold door guide pin and 21-204 pivot bracket. See if both of these pieces can be used in place of your current bi fold parts.

Hi Paul,

I'm ordering parts today as you suggested.

What about replacing the bottom track. Mine in the picture has a little dent in part of it. Perhaps I could fix it but would rather replace it. What is the part number for the track. It is 59 1/2 inches long.

Thank you.

Ah, I see. If you needed a new track then that changes things. The track that was once used with the 21-072 pin that I recommended is no longer made.

With that in mind, you can use our 21-402 track along with the 21-002 bottom adjusting pin and the 21-044 spring-loaded guide pin.
