How to fix this rattling sliding screen door

I have a sliding screen door that has wheels on the bottom edge but was designed without wheels or guides on the top edge. The result is that it rattles when closing. How can I install wheels or guides asking the top edge so that it slides without rattling? Thanks

Welcome to the forums!

I'm thinking all of the ones I've seen have wheels at the top. I would think it would have least have a nylon/plastic guide. The installers should know more than me and will likely chime in shortly.

No make, no pictures.
Never once heard of one with no rollers at the top.
Just can not imagine anyway to install them after the fact.

Actually, I remember the ones that came with our el-cheapo all vinyl sliders back at HD. The top had no rollers because it ran in a track molded in the top frame.

I don't think putting rollers in would be very simple now that it's assembled. Some sort of nylon guide either on the screen or in the frame might be doable. I'd check with local hardware and window/door companies to see what they may have.
