I'm using National Hardware,...hardware on my rolling shutters This is the bottom door roller that keeps the bottom of the door from swinging out. The roller is hard black plastic. There will be 10 of them. And a couple will be out of reach.


It's a decent quality brand but I'm a little concerned about this piece holding up over the years.

There are a lot of other roller materials out there. Most on castor wheels. A quick trip to home depot and I saw nylon, rubber, glass filled nylon, and polyurethane. Or any little skateboard wheel.

It's petty important to me not to have to get up there and maintain this. Does anyone know which of these would hold up the best? I've got no idea, just a suspicion that plastic is not the way to go.
