need help identifying hardware

A home owner from Florida says:

I am looking for a two pivot guide rods for my bi-fold closet door. The door was made by National Bifold doors. You can see in the images the length of both of them. The one above the measuring tape is the top guide rod. The one below the measuring tape is the bottom guide rod.

Then there are two separate photos. I have seen several on the catalogue but they appear longer than mine. Thank you for any assistance.

Here are a few additional photos to be as accurate as I can and a photos of the closet door itself.
Also for your information I barely have any knowledge of anything regarding hardware or fixing anything. I relied on my Father who was the fix-it man. I recently lost him so please understand my knowledge is very limited in this area. Thank you again.

Greetings. We may be able to supply this part but we will need a bit more information before we can continue. Can you tell me the diameter of the pin and nylon cap? From there, we will do our best to find something that can work as a replacement.

A home owner from Florida says:
Sure Here is a diagram of the measurements.
Thank you.

The diameter of your pin was missing, but if it is 1/4", you can use the 21-078. Take a look and see what you think.

A home owner from Florida says:
Sorry Paul,
Here is the full diagram. I mistakenly left out the measurement of the diagram which is .25" (left side of picture). If you can get the exact match I will need to order several pair.
Thank you.

Paul, the part #21-078 which you have me has a length of 5.7/8 inches. Mine has a length of 4.8". Will the difference in the length matter? As I had said I am a complete novice at anything that has to do with bi-fold closet doors. Thanks.

Thanks for getting back to us. I don't think the length will make that much of an impact, the diameter of the pin and the cap are the most important detail. As long as those match up then I think our 21-078 is worth considering. It won't be an exact match, but I couldn't find anything closer to your specifications.

A home owner from Florida says:
Ok. Thank you. As long as it works I'll order some. Thank you again.
A quick learner from Florida says:
That was the part. Thank you Paul. I'm going to order a few more for spares.
