I would like to replace the rollers on my mirrored closet doors (2).
They are approximately 30 years old. I will upload a couple more photos in a second email.

I previously stated I had 2 closet doors. I need to correct that number to 4 doors. 2 doors cover each of 2 closets.
Thank you for your assistance.

Hello,

Unfortunately, we could not locate an exact match for your roller. With that being said, take a look at the 23-075 and the 23-078 to see if the dimensions of either option match up to your roller. 

If not, another suggestion would be to just swap out the wheel and install either the 81-266 or the 81-272 , depending on which one matches your wheel diameter. Take a look and see what you think.

A handy person from Cedar Falls Iowa says:

Thank you for you prompt reply and helpful information including the repair videos. I have forwarded this information to my handyman so he can decide which roller choice he wants to proceed with. I hope to get back to you soon with our decision on your suggestions.

Thank you very much for your advice,

Carol

We are curious about the weight bearing of the 1 1/4 in nylon wheels.

Unit # 81=228 we think would work in our application if it can handle the weight.

Thank you,

Casey from SWISCO responded:

A 1-1/4" nylon wheel has a weight limit of around 50 lbs. For a steel wheel, the weight limit is around 100lbs. Take a look at the other related options to see if any of these could be used on your closet doors.

A handy person from Cedar Falls Iowa says:

Dear Casey,

Thank you for your assistance. You included a new suggestion of steel 1 1/4 inch rollers and that should work perfectly. I just finished ordering the stainless steel 1/4 in rollers, axels and lubricant. If they work, I will order more for the other doors.

Thank you so much for your help!
