Most commonly, you will find the wheels are full of soot and debris, and the track is also likely very dirty. To clean the wheels, use compressed air and needle tip pliers. Be careful to pull every last hair out of the wheel bearings. It is wise to be diligent in this step, so you don′t have to make a habit of this process. Once the wheels are completely clean, spray a little bit of penetrating oil into the wheel bearings, spinning the wheel as you apply the oil. (The best choice for the oil is DuPont′s Teflon non-stick dry film lubricant.) It is equally important to clean the track that the wheels rest on. Use damp paper towels to remove the grit and dirt, and then spray the penetrating oil along the track so it is well-applied. Use a clean paper towel to ensure it is evenly applied.

You should notice right away that the door is much easier to slide, and should require significantly less effort. If for any reason the door is still difficult to roll, it is likely one of the following reasons: either your wheels are completely burned out, or your sliding glass door is sitting too high on the track, and is thus hitting the top plate of the door frame. If your wheels are burned out, unfortunately you′ll have to call the manufacture of your sliding glass door and request new wheels. If, on the other hand, your door is hitting the top plate of your door frame, you can adjust this by finding the screw holes at the very bottom of you sliding glass door. On most sliding glass doors, there are two screws which can be turned with either a flathead screwdriver or an alan wrench. Turn to the right to raise the door, or turn to the left to lower the door.

If glue or any other type of adhesive was used on the old one, make sure that any remaining matter is scraped off to allow the new door handle to be installed as smooth as possible. Next, make sure that the holes on the door itself are of equal distance with the holes on the new glass handle. If the holes match, proceed to drill in the screws. If new ones need to be drilled, mark the surface with a pencil where you wish to place the new screws. If you are installing a glass handle that does not require screws, you may use an adhesive to install the new handle. Make sure that that you use a strong water proof adhesive that will withstand heat and steam. After you′ve applied the adhesive and have installed the new glass handle, do not use the handle for several hours until the handle is firmly secured.

You want to measure across the bottom, center, and top of the existing door frame to find the narrowest dimension. Start outside and measure at the point where the old door frame stops and the exterior material starts. That material can be stucco, siding, or brick. Measure across in the 3 places: bottom, center, and top. Record the smallest dimension. Then go inside and do the same thing. You want to measure where the frame ends and the drywall, plaster, or sheetrock begins. Take all six measurements, find the narrowest one, and deduct 3/4". That is the width of the new door. Now, when you measure the height, you can do it just on the outside. Measure the left, center, and right side from the ground where the bottom track sits, up to the top where the old frame ends and the exterior material begins. Take the narrowest dimension and deduct 1/2". That is your height of the new door. Then, determine which side the sliding panel should be on. The fixed panel is designated by the letter "O", and the slider is an "X". In most areas of the country, you call it out by looking at the door from outside and reading left to right. So, if you were outside looking at your door, and you want the sliding panel to close to the right wall, you would ask for an "OX". However, because i have recently discovered that not all parts of the country do it this way, my suggestion is to ask the dealer how they read the opening before placing your order.

Once you have purchased a glass door handle and have determined that all the pieces are included in the handle set, you are ready to start installing the piece. Before you start installation though, be sure an instruction sheet is included in the sheet. More often than not, you may not have to use these instructions. If you have never installed a glass handle, you will need the instructions. More often than not, you will be replacing a handle that′s already in place. If the glass handle you′re installing is identical or similar to the one you′re replacing, you may not need the instructions and will be able to do the installation within minutes. Here is an example of how to replace a glass door handle on a glass shower door.
