Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andrew Save your slider and save a thousand dollars
The Achilles heel of sliding glass doors has finally been addressed in this worthy product. Restoring the aluminum track with stainless was a painless and quick solution I'd been hoping for, saving me hundreds if not thousands in door replacement. If everything else was this easy, I'd have that perfect house!

My old track looked like a roller coaster with dips and wear spots making the door a challenge to open and close. This new track was an easy fix to an otherwise expensive option, like buying a new door which I could not afford. I just cleaned the old track area using a wire brush and soap and water. The new track went on easy with a rubber hammer careful not to damage the new track. Minor adjustment on the rollers and I was done. What a great fix til I can afford a new door.

This product was so easy to install. WE were having trouble closing our sliding glass door because of waves and dips in our track that the rollers slide on. This product totally eliminates that problem and was a breeze to install. It lays right over the existing track.
Thanks Home Depot

The track on my patio door was pretty bad and the door pushed hard and made a lot of noise. Some of the track had pushed down toward its base and expanded, so I had to grind that part back to the regular width of the track. Pretty easy with a portable grinder and cutting disk. After that I tapped the repair track down with a hammer and a piece of 1x2. Finally I tightened the bottom of the repair track at both ends and finished up. Now the door glides along easily and noiselessly. A perfect solution and my wife is happy!

My house is 25 years old and the aluminum track under the sliding door was worn out .I use the door often and had to repair it. I was picturing a huge amount of labor and money . One day I was looking at sliding door parts on Home Depots website and saw this repair track. I ordered it and picked it up at the store. It took about an hour to cut and install it . What an awesome product . The door works like it did when it was new and this heavy gauge stainless track should last forever.

If you have a bad aluminum sliding door track, do not hesitate to buy this product. I had a track that was completely crushed for about 10 - 12 inches in two spots. This item corrected my problem perfectly. With new wheels as well, my door is now sliding effortlessly.
Some sanding, grinding of the old track may be necessary to have this item snap over correctly.
Years of frustration were fixed in a matter of minutes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SoCalHomeowner 24 year old sliding glass door rolls like new
Could not be happier with this purchase. The product arrived much sooner than expected. Price was as good as I could find anywhere online.
I included a picture of the rail installed in the door track. The close-up photo shows how worn out the old aluminum frame is. The aluminum track is heavily worn with some flat spots. When the rollers on the bottom of the door would hit the flat spots, the bottom of the door would drop and drag on the frame. This made the door very difficult to slide open or close.
I had to cut about two feet off the rail (easy enough using a hacksaw) to fit the door frame. It was a little tricky getting a six-foot long rail into place over the old track with its flat spots, but it was accomplished using a hammer and wood block to snap the rail into place. With a few adjustments to the height of the rollers on the door after it was reinstalled on the track, the door started sliding back and forth like a new door.
I expect the stainless steel track rail will be much more durable than the old aluminum track and I don't think I will have to repair this track again. Total cost on repairing the track was less than $15, which is far less than the almost $1800 than Home Depot's competitor wanted to charge for replacing the entire door and frame. Home Depot's competitor did not have this repair part available in store or online and the store personnel did not know this repair option was available. To be fair, Home Depot's staff also did not know this repair part was available, but at least the part was available through Home Depot online.
Thank you to Home Depot for having such oddball and hard to find repair parts available at excellent prices. I appreciate that a lot. In this case, I saved a lot of money making a simple repair rather than having to replace the old sliding glass door and frame.

I needed to repair/replace my sliding glass patio door. The aluminum track had become badly scalloped over 20 plus years of use. Since I try to do my own repairs, I wasn't looking forward to the expense and work involved. I wasn't aware that there was such an easy and economical solution to my problem. I checked around online and found a stainless steel cover for the damaged aluminum track. You just measure, cut and tap down with a rubber mallet or narrow block of wood. Thanks Home Depot.
