Question about Home
my frameless shower door has two hinges (Mikey mouse ears, i was told) and the top one lets the glass shift just a bit, but enough to make the door stick to the opposite side of the wall. I have reset this door, but after not even a month it is doing the same thing again. It looks like it needs some gasket of sort between the metal hinge and the glass. Thanks
You can fix this problem by loostening the clamp screw and putting locktite sealer(you can purchase locktite from hd or lowes locktite is not the only product you can call a glass supplier and as for recommendation) Be sure to read the directions on the tube I use it to seal joints on refrigeration threaded parts. Make sure it will adhere to glass and metal also review the clean up solvent when you do this place a wood wedge at the bottom of the glass dooor and the threashold to support he weight until the sealer driese
1 Place wood wedge/block under door where non hinged side meets wall
2 losten top hinge(inspect bottom hinge to make sure it is snug and the glass dor is all the way into the hinge
3 You may have to remove the top hinge completely to get enough of the locktite on the metal and glass place the locktite on the hinge flat plate and the glass
4 recheck gap where door meets wall( I sometimes use paint stirs(wood) as shims to keep space between door and wall consistent
5 tighten top inge screws( you can put locktite on the screw threas also
6 Clean excess locktite and wait suggested time by instructions on tube
