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.

    Just installed a DreamLine Unidoor shower door and have the same problem, only in one direction. It opens silently, but when closing there are two almost simultaneous "pops". On closing very slowly, it sounds like one comes from the hinge and one comes from the wall. I have swapped the hinges and it comes from the top every time. I am a contractor and installed it as directed, even switching for a heavier wall anchor than they provided after noticing this issue. Anyone got any ideas?

Sterling frameless bypass shower doors inside door wont stay closed even though have it on th best option setting to do so


Some times it's possible to tweak a roller track (barely bend) at the proper spot to prevent the roller from back tracking past that spot.

I have just had the Sterling Plumbing Finesse Frameless Bypass shower doors installed in my new bathroom, model 5425-59S-G05. I do not like the clear doors and want to replace them with Lake Mist which is...


Home Depot will likely only sell the whole kit, not the individual doors off the floor. You may be able to special order just the doors through Home Depot or you may have to contact Sterling directly and order the doors through them. The doors hang on rollers from the top track and will come off simply by lifting them up off the track and out. Make sure to wear a good pair of rubber coated gloves as the doors can be quite slippery.

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

Spartan brand curved glass shower door installation info needed.


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

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!
