Roller Hall of Shame

 

We replaced 18 rollers in 9 panels in 1 house.
Not a single one was unbroken.
Of course we replaced them with a much better wheel.

This is a perfect example of why we recommend NOT using WD40.
There IS a roller in there somewhere.

Dog hair + dirt + metal shavings + WD40 =

This one has all kinds of problems
Stuck bearings
Worn down plastic
Rust for days
The owner of this roller tried to grease it up.
He didn't quite make it to the bearings.

These rollers never made it out of the package.
The red circles are to point out the cracks in the plastic.
This is why we try to stay away from this type of wheel.

This one was in so many pieces that they were blocking the door from coming out.

This is a new one on me.
I'm not even sure how this is possible.
This roller has been worn all the way to the bearings...
all the way around the axle!

 

Don't let them get this bad.


 

Can you find the roller in the picture below?
This door was in an enclosed area that was made into a garden.
Clearly the plants had plenty of water.  Unfortunately, so did the rollers.
Please try to direct sprinklers away from doors.

 


 

This roller was worn all the way up to the bearings.....Twice!
You don't have to live like this.
Grease doesn't help
when the roller stops turning.
We don't like replacing tracks that could have
been saved with a simple roller replacement.
We want to replace the rollers before the track is ruined.

 


This roller was completely covered in dog hair.

 


Believe it or not, the hole in the roller below
is where the ball bearings used to be.
This is a solid steel roller!
I can't repeat it enough!
