Corner inserts interchangable?

Extruded Aluminum corner

Extruded Aluminum corner

Giving my old condo patio doors a little TLC. Large sliding screen door has broken sliding wheels. I was looking to replace the corner inserts, wheels and screen. I can't seem to find the exact corner inserts. If I find one with a similar size, can I use a different style insert? If not, do you know where I can find these inserts? Condo was built in mid 70's.

Hi Phil;
I am very familiar with those screen door corners and rollers. These are quite common in high rise condos built in the 1970's all over Southwestern Ontario. 

They are a unique size and you cannot substitute any other corner unfortunately

However the corners, plastic housings with springs and wheels are still available. Sometimes I substitute ball bearing wheels because they work so much better than the original nylon wheels.

Please let me know how many sets you need and I will send you a quote for supply and delivery to Toronto
