Choosing the Right Sliding Door Roller
To ensure proper functionality, it’s important to outfit a sliding glass door with the appropriate roller. Follow these steps to determine the right roller for a sliding door:
- Remove the door.
- Unscrew and dislodge the current roller.
- Take some pictures for reference.
- Measure the dimensions fo the current roller.
- Analyze the wheel to determine if it is metal or nylon.
- Compare the current specs with our sliding door roller models.
Installing a Sliding Door Roller
Our products make installation fast and easy. The most difficult step is removing the door from the frame. Be careful to remove the door steadily without forcing the panel from the frame. With the door removed, follow these steps to replace a sliding door roller:
- Loosen the roller screw: Find the screws that hold the roller in place and undo them. For newer doors, the roller screw may be on the bottom of the door itself. Be sure to keep the removed screws in a safe place.
- Remove rollers: To remove the rollers, gently pull them from the door. Be sure to remove rollers from both the top and bottom. If you haven’t already done so, this is a good time to follow the above steps to determine the right type of roller.
- Insert new rollers: With new rollers in hand, line up the holes on the roller with those in the top and bottom of the door. Grab your screws and turn them back into place.
