Glass Shower Door Catch - When it comes to keeping your home in tip top condition, nothing can be more annoying than the usual sliding glass door that will not slide. After all, what is the point of having a lovely glass door that leads out to a picturesque backyard when the darn thing requires three NFL linebackers to slide it open? So having personally experienced such sliding glass door angst, I chose to compose this short article to advise you of the number 1 reason your sliding glass door will not slide - and what you can do about it!
The number 1 reason your sliding glass door will not side is because too much dirt and debris have clogged up the wheels and the path of your door panel. This is not a hard fix, but it is best if you've got another person present to assist you, because sliding glass doors are rather heavy. Step one will be to analyze your sliding glass door is fixed to the path.
After the door is on its side, it is possible to carefully analyze the track as well as the wheels. Most commonly, you'll find the wheels are filled with debris and soot, and also the track can be probably very filthy. Needle point and use compressed air pliers, to clean the wheels. Be careful to pull every last hair from the wheel bearings.
While you are at it, clean up all the "mating-edges" of the door. This really is where the sliding door and any other surface of the door frame meet. A general rule of thumb would be to simply wipe down anything that looks filthy. Don't forget, even whenever dirt isn't necessarily on the path itself, it may fall to the course causing your door to need another wipe down.
