Operating Panel Adjustment
If your slide patio door panel does not operate smoothly it can be adjusted via the two adjustment screws located at the bottom inside face of the operating panel.
To adjust the door, remove the plugs covering the adjustment screws. Using a Phillips screwdriver adjust the operating panel up or down being sure to keep the panel square with the lock side jamb. Turning the adjustment screws clockwise will lower the door panel while turning the screw counter clockwise will raise the panel. Be sure to replace the plug covers after the adjustments are completed. This will help to keep the rollers clean. After your door is adjusted, latch and keeper adjustment may be necessary.
Lock and Keeper Adjustment
To make sure that your patio door closes correctly, the keeper may be adjusted up or down until the latch engages properly. It is also possible to tighten or loosen the latch mechanism on the door by using the adjustment screw on the edge of the latch.
If your rolling patio screen does not operate smoothly, it may be adjusted via the two adjustment screws located at the bottom vertical screen frame edge.
