If you don't plan replacing the shower door, fill the holes with tile colour grout or other fillers you can buy from hardware stores. I am saying grout because if you have coloured tiles, the filled holes won't show prominently, otherwise fillers are ok.

SOURCE: frameless shower door sticking to the opposite wall when closing

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

Steps

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


Good Luck!

SOURCE: I have a new frameless glass shower and every time

It sounds like you have something caught up in the hinges, or in between the door and the opening. I would have whoever installed it come back and fix it. As a general contractor I would not be happy with myself if I had installed it and would like the opportunity to redeem myself if it was not done correctly.

curved cut glass will not always be the exact dimensions though they may look identical there should be several set screws on both the door glass frame and the shower glass frame that can be loosened and reset to make the door fit and close and open more properly without seeing the showwer itself i can not tell you exactly where they are but they should be either visible or behind a facade piece of metal frame

How to tighten shower door handles


On my glass shower door handles, one inside and one outside there are button like screws hold the shower handles on. If you look closely you will see a small hole in the edge of the button. This hole is used to turn the button screw. This is not an Allen set screw, but rather how you turn the button screw. Insert a small Allen wrench into the side hole and rotate the button screw (not the wrench which acts as a tightening bar) clockwise to tighten or counterclockwise to loosen.

The inside shower door is uneven, making it come of the hinge after moving it more than 4-6 inches.The metal attachment holding the glass is lower than the other ones.How do I get it even so it slides...


The top rollers should have adjustments on them to bring the door to horizontal as it swings accross the track.

Start with door in the middle and adsust by seinging it to both sides.

Soap scum on shower doors


We definitely want to stay away from any cleaning products that have an abrasive. Your local grocery or department store will have products specifically for cleaning soap scum. Some products will work better than others depending on the type of mineral content in your water. The best product is one where you don't have to do an excessive amount of scrubbing to remove the hard water and soap scum stains. Be sure to follow the manufacturers instructions for the best results. Again depending on the mineral content of your water you may have to try a few different products until you find one that works the way you want it to. There are also products you can purchase that you would spray onto the glass after a shower to prohibit the buildup of soap scum.

I have frameless shower doors, the bottom sill is tile, with grout lines. Water leaks under the shower door through the grout lines, how to correct this.


if the glass actually contacts the tile you can go to the homedepot or similar place and buy some glass silicone sealer and just run a nice bead of caulk along the line, make sure you get clear silicone and let it thooroughly dry before you get it wet
