replace plastic door lites

Have a metal patio door in good shape with plastic frame around glass. Want to change from divided lites to full glass. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement plastic frame? There is no manufacturer info on door. It's a 23 1/4" door which I believe is a standard small patio door-home improvement stores were no help and so far nothing online. Please help...

try a glass shop.


Short of cutting off a body part, the worst that can happen in woodworking is manufacturing really nice looking kindling. --- Quoted from lenaitch

Hate to tell you TB but what your looking for isn’t going to happen, off the shelf anyway.

You our someone else is going to have to make you what you need. It definitely can be done though.

If you, family, or a friend can pull it off, it’s probably feasible.

If you hire a pro you might want to compare the cost of your door remodel vs. a new door.

You can always replace with wood

Even though you are replacing plastic door lites you can replace them with custom sized wood ones. They are available at [URL=""]
