Did this video help you?

Michael Walsh: A very good instructional video. I will add that I found it hugely helpful to run a piece of fishing line or thin wire (my wife has this stuff called "floral wire") around the new wheel assembly behind where it clips to the pins in the door frame. That way, if you have to move the screwdriver to get more leverage, or even reposition the whole assembly ever so slightly for it to line up properly, you can keep it in position instead of having it slip off the pins entirely.

John Gotti: I have a Model#B691 roller. how do I remove boken one and install new rollers

Myrele McGuinty: How do I change the bracket that the roller is attach to ?

Saul Borak: many thanks for a perfect way to instruct someone with limited skills. worked like a charm. $ 4 instead of $65 for new door

deprondave: Thanks for posting this these things had me soooo frustrated

joan holladay: I have just replaced 3 of the four rollers. On the 4th one, however, I can see that the prongs that the roller is supposed to spread over has broken off. Is there any work around? I tried installing the door with the roller just loose in the track, but was too loose to hold.

Prime Line: You are more than welcome, thanks for watching. Hope the replacement goes smoothly for you.

Prime Line: Something we didn't go over in the video was the fact that weather, old oil/grease and dirt, combined with rusty or corroded parts can make this job more difficult. If the video did anything, it at least gave you the confidence to go ahead and do it yourself, and you got it done. Was the roller you were replacing the exact same as in the video?

Prime Line: You can't get to the edge of the screen by sliding either one of the glass panels one way or another, or sliding the screen? If there's any way you can send a couple photos to the e-mail address in the description so we can take a look at them and figure out how to help you. Please mention in the e-mail that this is a question from YouTube, so we can also come back and answer here as well for anyone else with this issue.

cpidesk: Thank You GREAT info.

Prime Line: @CottonandSugar @dlight1218 Thanks for watching. We had enough people calling asking how to do this that we thought a video was in order.

Steve T: I'm gonna give this a try sometime this week, hope it goes as smoothly as you demonstrated in this video. :)

stvnixrcks: I have slid the glass doors both on the outisde and inside and the screen and still have no access to the other side of the screen to reach the screw. maybe i have to remove the inside glass door??

Ana Vasquez: Thank you for your time and heading to the hardware store.

Juan Onofre: Just like in the video. Thanks a lot for it. It was really easy.

teresarh1: still need a better video instruction...i understand the concept of inserting the screw driver inside along the wheel...its not specific enought in what movements are being made once inside....I can see inside with a magnitfying glass where to screwdriver goes...but been trying a week now and dont know how ur spreading prongs..btw what are the prongs even and how are they attached ..i see a spac

jf lanvers: Seduced by the smooth and easy video, I went to Home Depot to get the parts I needed. My screen door is about 9 years old, so it had seen better days, is bent in parts and is no longer in its prime. To start with I found the two old rollers that needed replacement extremely hard to extract. The most difficult portion of the job however was to replace the new rollers. It took me a good 30 minutes plus some immense grief to get the job done. There's definitely room for improvement (video/product)

Prime Line: If you need to remove the sliding glass door to get to the screen be sure to get someone to help you, as they can be heavy and awkward. Safety First!

dlight1218: I've been scratching my head on this one for a while, thanks for posting the video. The people at home depot weren't much help on this. I thought I'd have to destroy my screen door to get that damn wheel out.

Alex Moreno: LIARS!!! This is not an easy task. I have almost sliced my thumb trying to do this the way it has been shown. I was at it for an hour yesterday trying to do this and believe me, it is freaking hard. Taking out the old roller is easy. Installing the new one is virtually impossible. I'm going to try to do it again tonight. But the prongs don't open as easily as shown. I have to try and bend the prongs in order to get them to open up and snap in place. I'm looking for more detailed videos.

Prime Line: Glad it worked for you. Taking things apart is always easier than getting them back together (A lesson I learned when I was very young). Just take your time, and follow the instructions in the video, you'll do ok.

NotoriousMOK: While I really appreciate such a quality video on this topic, I am still having trouble with this application. Just to clarify, I am replacing the rollers in a screened slider that is approximately 8 years old, but the existing and new rollers (#B515) are an exact match. The trouble I am having is when installing the new roller, just before it seems the roller bracket will snap into position, the plastic wheel/axle pops out of the bracket. Am I missing something here? Thank you

Prime Line: The adjustment screw is used to raise or lower the roller and hence the door so the door sits evenly on the track and rolls smoothly. If it's too high, it (the screen) can bind at the top. If it's too low the screen frame can drag on the track.

L. Abraham: It worked!!! The first few attempts of trying to remove the roller/s seemed impossible. I was afraid of breaking it and having to replace the whole entire screen. I did exactly what you did and got them out! Thank you...hopefully when I replace the rollers it will be just as easy.

90012bg: The video was a help. I struggled to get the old roller out without the phillips screwdriver. I broke one of the new roller "axle pins" using the screwdriver to lever it in as shown - as @NotoriousMOK wrote. They come 2 to a package, so I took @goofyfam42's advice and put the screwdriver in front of the wheel. This *almost* did it; the deciding factor was to loop string behind the bracket and use the string to position the bracket. Also, what's the adjusting screw do, anyway?

Prime Line: You're welcome. Thank You for watching.

Alex Moreno: I'm surprised I got a response from PrimeLine. I finally got the rollers replaced. Took me an extra 15 minutes with the first one, but then it took me about 6 minutes for the next one. I had to use needle nose pliers and bend the tabs open to make the space between the tabs bigger. The video doesn't show this, but I would love to see the guy take off a worn out and rusty roller like the one I had and replace it with a new one. The space between the tabs is remarkably different from old to new.

Dan Filipi: Hey thanks for the video, it helped a lot!

cpidesk: Thank You GREAT info. 04/18/2011 great price on primeline net

Prime Line: @alxtoo "Liar" seems a little harsh, considering you just watched him do it. I spent some time looking on YouTube for another video of someone installing this roller for you, but couldn't find one, Sorry. If you're still having trouble getting the roller back in, I would suggest taking the door to your nearest screen shop and seeing if they can do it for you. I wouldn't think they would charge much for installing the rollers.

cpidesk: Thank You GREAT info. 04/18/2011

Alex Moreno: @PrimeLineHowTo The guy on the video used the same roller he took off. It obviously has a little more give compared to a new one. When I used a brand new out of the box roller, the tabs wouldn't open up at all. The space between is too small to allow the hinge to fit, let alone open up the tabs. The lesson in all of this is that the video needs more detailed instructions. I'm not kidding, I was moments away from having to pay for a new screen or have some professional replace the rollers.

stvnixrcks: I am trying to remove my sliding screen door in order to replace the ripped screen, but my sliding screen door is between two glass sliding doors!!! How do i get to the inside edge of the screen door in order to loosen up the screw for the roller????

goofyfam42: Nice clear instructions and video. For me it worked better to put the screw driver in front of the wheel when replacing the part. It was the only way to get the thing to open up enough to fit over the post.
