Oblong Roller - Sold Each

These parts are made in America.  This replacement part will come in two pieces, instead of 1.  The plastic piece, and a metal shaft that goes through the middle.  It's stronger, with lots of reinforcement inside.

These are sold each, but the price is less for buying more.  If you buy 2 they are $21.95 each, if you buy 4 they are $16.95 each.  And shipping is included.  

Here's a couple of options for anyone who needs either the roller, or the insert, and doesn't want to buy them.

One option is to made something that will work.  Look at one of the pictures below.  It's a piece of hardwood that someone cut, and trimmed the edges of, and drilled a hole, then put a hollow metal shaft inside the wooden piece to make it work.   

For the Insert, remove the old insert, and use a wood filler to fill the hole where the insert goes, sand it down, and then drill a hole in the center to the size of the oblong roller shaft.  I hope that helps you.

Oblong Roller (Each)  Also known as Plastic Futon Glides, dowel runners, carriage blocks, Futon Rollers or Oblong Glides. These attach to the sides of the Back part of the frame with the attached pin, and when assembling the frame, the Rollers slide into a groove in the arms and allow the futon frame to convert from a sofa to a bed and back.  Sometimes the pin goes into a plastic insert which is sold separately.  Make sure to check to see if the Plastic Inserts on your frame are in good shape.  If they are cracked, you'll need to order some of those too.  See Related Item below.  These Do Not Fit Norka futon frames.
