Forum Title: How to put screen door back into its track?
Hello, we live in a condo apartment with a juliet balcony. Needed to replace the screen so we took the door out (by force) and fixed the screen. Now we can't put the door back in the track! It can't be approached from the outside and there's not much room to maneuver from the inside. There are 2 screws on the side of the door - one at the top and one at the bottom. Not sure if doing anything to them would help (and afraid to ruin the door and just try it.) Window manufacturer is Allen Windows, I assume the door is by them as well. Any ideas on how to get the door into the track? Thank you in advance!

As long as the different windows are not visible from the outside or doesn't really matter. If you can stand in the LR for instance...and see both types of windows...there will be an obvious difference in the glass. Prob the same for the exterior view. That said...I had customers that did it back in Tidewater before any tax rebates...just because they didn't want that hot afternoon sun streaming in.

Those are the instructions that I found on the web, but they're for doors where you have access to both ends of the door. Once I put the screen door in, I only have access to one side of it. This is what I'm dealing with (hope this makes sense ) |1|X|2| 1 - fixed window X - sliding door + sliding screen door outside 2 - fixed window My arm isn't long enough to push the roller at the other end of the door from outside. The screws are only on one side of the door. And even if there were screws on the other side as well, I wouldn't be able to tighten them once the door is in place. Hopefully this better describes what we're dealing with. TIA!
