Can replacement hardware be purchased for bi-fold doors? I know this seems
like a simple question but my local (little town) hardware/grocery
store/USPS office was thoroughly confused by the question. I would be
looking for the suspension hardware that makes the door move in the upper
tract (there is no lower tract on this door).
Is it worth replacing? Does the door function correctly with replacement
hardware or is it easier/less aggravating in the long run to replace the
You might be able to get replacement parts, but each bifold door system is
different and you'd have to know your brand/model and probably get the parts
from the manufacturer.
You can order a new door it which will pretty much drop right into the door.
This will include the track, rollers, lower pivot, and additional parts.
You may or may not need to replace all those parts to get the door working.
Great site. Thanks, John. And thank you, too, Tim. I appreciate the
guidance. I think I might try replacing the hardware before I give up and
replace the entire door. (Heck, for a while now I've been using some
jimmied-up screw and washer to make it work. ;)
By door I meant, "if I can't make this damn wooden thing fold open and
closed without falling off the tract and hitting me in the head three times
a week then I'm going to burn it on the trash pile and laugh while I do it".
So I guess I'm trying hardware replacement first.
Did that make sense? :)
