I'm trying to help a friend repair their sliding screen door - it kept
coming off the track and falling out - I lifted up the door and removed it -
the bottom rollers probably need a bit of an adjustment, but they look OK -
they turn freely, and there aren't any flat spots on the rollers.
The top rollers were clearly broken - cheap plastic that had degraded
severly with the Florida heat - part of one of them even fell out of the
door as I was taking it down. Problem is, I only have part of the roller
assembly (the part that fell out), and couldn't figure out how to get the
remaining part of the assembly out of the door so I could get a replacement
assembly. Looking at the different sites that sell replacement parts for
sliding screen doors, since I don't know what the remaining part of the
roller assembly looks like (the part that's still in the door frame), I
can't figure out which replacement part to buy.
Is there a generic (one type fits all) top roller assembly that I can use?
The top roller assembly in this type of door is only there to guide the door
in the top track as it slides back and forth - it doesn't need to bear any
