Question about Locks & Locksmithing
This is a standard patio door, and I'm sure there must be some way of adjusting it - the only adjusting screws I can find seem to be used to hold the actual doorframe together. Any ideas?
Usualy there are 2 ajustment screws at the bottom in the flashing
if you lift the door out of the track and look at the bottom you will see the rollers and likely the ajustment screws is there are no adusters make sure the rollers are free f not spray with penetrating oil and let sit untill free then try again
if sash or frame is tight try spraying it with pledge furnature polish the light grease coat will allow plastic parts to move freely once again

My track was worn badly. Repairing the bottom track on a patio glass sliding door. it had many gouges in it and the door would jam at each spot. initial thinking was that the whole door would have to be replaced. At costs from $200 to $800+ I had to think of other options. Could this track be sanded down to even the track again? Can just the track be replaced? I finally found at Home Depot a rail that goes over the old one at a cost of $12!!! It had to be ordered but it arrived at the store 2 days later & no shipping fees was charged. I had to remove the sliding door side only. This track is 8 ft long so measure & cut whatever width the door is. After the door was removed I slid the new track over the old track. I was able to slide the track under the permanent door side so removal of both doors was not necessary, slight pressure had to be applied to push the track down. Put the sliding door back on the track and cruised my fingers that all worked!!!! The door now rolled smoothly back & forth with no jamming, Cost if $12 and about an hour of time & I felt like I had a brand new door !!!!!!
