My story is similar to Jan above that my plastic upper guide is chipped. Pictures attached. Can I cut it with a jig-saw and replace it with your kit? Do you send to Canada?

Hi John;

Thanks for the great pictures.

You can cut the top track away with a jig saw.

Your top track looks at least 1-1/2" tall which is taller than my C Channel top track.

After cutting out the old track, you have to put a spacer shim between the new track and the door header so that the old screen door height will still work.

If thats ok, I can send you a top track.

I keep some tracks at Burlington, Ontario so that I can send out Canadian orders.

Price would be the same for Kanata, Ontario as it is in the USA.

You can find my contact information and email on the home page of

Hope this helps
