SLIDING GLASS PANEL WILL NOT COME DOWN

I have a screen door that has a retractable screen on the upper half, I put the glass panel up - screen retracted - now I cannot get the glass panel to slide back down. It appears that the side clips do not move far enought out of the frame,any suggestions as to how I can move the glass panel down? Thanks


Hi

Study the tracks on the left and right of the glass panel. There are often gaps in the track thats just big enough for a sharp edge on the glass panel to get hooked up on.

It usually takes jiggling the glass panel in the area where its hooked on to get it to come free and close properly again.

You can try lifting the panel slightly higher and pulling a little on one of the corners at the same time.

Thanks, by jiggling it I was able to free the panel, so I am now able to open and close it.
