Einleitung

A bifold door that has come off its tracking can be a frustrating occurrence. This particular guide references a bifold door that depends on a plastic pin which is secured into the tracking above the door. Using this step-by-step process will help you replace the pin at the top of the door, reinsert it into the track, and get it back to functioning properly.

Before using this guide, check to see if the pin has fallen out and is damaged, or if the pin just needs to be put back into the tracking. We have provided links in Step 5 to where a new pin can be purchased, but in some cases the pin can be reused if it isn’t damaged or warped.
