Customer Questions & Answers

can i replace this track without removing my patio door ?, my door is extremely heavy

Asked by: fixer
Yes, it's possible to install this track cover without removing the door. To do this, you need to raise the door and slide the track underneath. I've done it. But it's not easy. And I don't recommend attempting this unless you have appropriate tools and wedges and a helper to raise the door. Bottom line: if you're asking this question, then it's probably too advanced for you.

Will this fit any sliding patio door

Asked by: Anonymous
It depends of the height of the track that is currently in place. This product is for a quarter inch track. Do some measurements.

I need it in 10'. How can I get it.

Asked by: Willi
You will need to buy two and put them together on the old track. You may want to cut two 5' pieces to keep them in place, a 2' piece may move when you open the door.

1/4 in. x 8 ft. Stainless Steel Sliding Door Repair Track is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 418.

Purchased this to repair a heavily damaged track on an older and very HEAVY 8' long mirrored closet door. Our track was heavily damaged making it difficult for the repair track to even attach to a large section of the damaged track. I applied the silicone as stated, however, once you start hammering the track into place the silicone goes flying, so it got messy. I think the silicone is necessary especially in our case, but in hindsight I would of done things a bit differently. The video shows him putting the silicone into the repair track, which is what I did, but I think I should run the bead down the old rail, that way once you start tapping it into place it wont come splattering out of the repair track. Also if you have an extremely damaged rail you may need to work at it to get it attached well, It took some doing with a block of wood and a hammer tapping here and there for the worst part of the track, but having said all that, once I got it in place I am totally happy with the repair, the door glides like new!

I used this to repair my sliding patio screen door track, which is made from plastic. There were a few sections of the rib that were broken, so the sliding screen door would jump off the track. Since the sliding door was quite old (built in 1995) and I don't know who the manufacturer is or if they are still in business, this repair track saved me from buying a whole new sliding patio door. Especially when only the screen door track was broken. It just needs some silicone adhesive and needs to be crimped over the original track rib. Gloves are important when trying to crimp, otherwise you may get blisters on your hands from squeezing the pliers so hard. I just installed it on 3/21/2017 so only time will tell how durable it is. The stainless steel construction should allow it to last for a long time since it will not rust. This repair track should also strengthen the entire track rib, which will help prevent failures in case you have pets or kids that push on the screen door. The final result turned out nice and it exceeded my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product! This product saved me alot of money and time. I have a rental with a outdated custom size sliding patio door that has seen better days. The weight of the 4 ft by 10 ft door and the lack of maintenance and cleanliness of tenants lead to the track edge wearing down and putting a flat spot on the stainless steel track wheel. Last year I grinded and filed the leading edge and bought it some more time in service. Thoughts that I would be renovating that entire interior wall just to replace that sliding door to something more common seemed inevitable. Thanks to this producted I no longer need to even consider replacement because it is as good if not better than new. Highly recommend.

My 8' sliding glass door was very hard to open and close. I changed the rollers and trimmed the door frame where it was rubbing slightly with hardly any improvement. I saw this rail repair track on YouTube and it worked wonders. My old track had completely worn through in places. Just pry the old track up and tap this one on with a rubber hammer or block of wood. The results were instant. Can now open door with one finger., With a firm short push the door will run to the end of the track and actually bounce off the bumper at the end and come back. I did run a small bead of silicone in the new track before installing to level out the uneven spots in the rail below and to help the track adhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT QUALITY PRODUCT Fixed an elderly friends slider. She could only get the door open half way. Simple repair, anyone can do this. Lift the door out, clean the area, someone had previously put a similar product on that was of very poor quality and had split, pulled it off original rail which looked like someone had beat it with a hammer. Cut new product to length. Install with silicone. Her slider now opens all the way and closes with her only using one finger. GREAT QUALITY PRODUCT

I was searching for a repair/replacement track for my sliding "screen" door. The 1/4" track appeared to meet the specs for my screen door. However the track in this item is for the "Glass door" only, and the track will not service the standard 1/4" wheel used on "screen" doors. My overall door demension for a " Blomberg" HP680 is 6' X 6' with a single threshold with two tracks integrated side by side.. I do not intend to replace the several thosand dollar door because I can't' repair a 1/4' track. Per discussions with door repair professionals, I will tool a flat metal strip with the necessay 1/4 " tracK.. While it may look home made, I'm sure I can get this door operating for less than the $50. Why dosen't Prime-Line offer a parallel product in a Sliding "Screen Door" Repair Track? I have returned this product as not serviceable for my need.
