Written Instructions


Step 1: Disengage the opener

Disengage your garage door opener to ensure that the door won't open by itself during installation.


Step 2: Pull the bottom roller off the track

Use the claw of a hammer to pry the bottom roller out of the track. While the roller is off the track, remove the roller from the bracket.


Step 3: Insert new rollers

Remove old roller and insert a new roller into the hinge. Repeat this with all of the rollers except for the top roller. Only replace the rollers on one side of the garage and one roller at a time.


Step 4: Remove track with drill if necessary

If you are unable to remove the track with a hammer, use a drill to unbolt the track to make it easier to remove the rollers. Be sure to bolt the track back in place once all of the new rollers are installed.


Step 5: Replace the top rollers

To replace the top rollers, manually open the garage door so that it is all the way open. With the top rollers positioned overhead, lift the top section so that the roller is not in the track and remove the roller from the hinge. Slide your new roller into the hinge and pop the roller back into the track. Repeat this for the top roller on the other side of the door.

Once all of the rollers have been replaced, reengage the opener and test your door to ensure that it opens and closes smoothly.
