Re: Old Patio Door Wheel Adjustment Screw

Just try it both ways. Only one will be the right way.

Just make sure you lift up the door first to take pressure off the wheel.

Looks like the screw is removed then replace it after adjusting the ten sided button.

As vinyl said, lift the door first-so you don’t strip the adjusting screw.

Re: Old Patio Door Wheel Adjustment Screw

you need to loosen the philips screw. This will enable you to use a flat screwdriver on the adjustment screw.

TIP:Lift on the door to make it easier to turn adjustment screw.

Good Luck
