Tip: Adjust a slider

Our sliding patio door needs to be adjusted because the opening panel sticks instead of rolling freely. We found a way to adjust the roller mechanism with a screwdriver by turning the screws clockwise to raise it or counterclockwise to lower it slightly. Seems to need adjustment mid-summer when it gets a lot of use.
