Determining the right type of garage door roller for your garage door tracks can be a little confusing, especially when you do not know what you need to look for in a garage door roller.
Two primary things to look for:
- The Dimensions of the roller (Garage Door Roller Diameter and Stem Length).
- Material of the roller
Measuring Garage Door Roller Diameter
Roller diameter size is standardized across the garage door industry into 1 inch, 2 inch, or 3 inch rollers.
Use a ruler to measure the roller and the stem.
The measurements will not be as precise as 1 inch, 2 inch, or 3 inch rollers. A 3 inch roller will actually measure to an estimated 2 3/4 inches, while a 2 inch roller will measure to an estimated 1 3/4 inches, and a 1 inch roller will measure to an estimated 3/4 inch. Additionally, the roller shaft has a diameter of 7/16 inches, which is the industry standard.
