So I work for a glazing company, which my grandparents own. They're set in their ways and if they can't find the part I'm looking for, we can't get it. I'm trying to find out if anyone knows any website to be able to search for this wheel for a friend's door. I took out the old wheel and replaced it with a plastic one. The wheel assembly is still metal, but the one side broke off. When I put the door back into the frame, the screw head holding the wheel under the door popped off (I don't think I over tightened it, they're just crummy screws).


That's a picture of the wheel. It's a two part wheel, the two pieces slide into each other. The door only has wheels on the bottom. So all I need to do is know where to look to find two replacement wheels. Or if anyone knows what kind I should be looking for. The strybuc catalog at work only seems to carry the new wheels.

Welcome to HW.

Can you identify the door make/model and age?

There should be a name somewhere, but often not. I hate when people are ashamed to identify their products. Another try, swisco.com, door/window hardware.

The house interior walls are made of plaster rather than drywall, so I suspect very old. I couldn't find a name listed anywhere on the door.
@CabinConnection , and thanks for the welcoming.

You might want to give them a call. They might have some suggestions on something you could retro-fit.

Sometimes it's on a hinge, or etched in the glass, or on the top edge, or not at all... whistle
