Aligning frameless shower door???

Whew....been a minute since I’ve been here. Miss the journey from (gulp) 11 years ago I had here!

My favorite shower is still doing great but....my shower door has worked it’s way out of alignment & I don’t know why. Suggestions to get her to hang straigh again? TIA!!

Welcome back, Randy.

If the door and panel were aligned and now they're not, either the framing moved or the hinges are wearing.

How far off is it now, and which - the panel or the door?

Thanks Dan!

Definitely the door. The adjacent glass is stationary. I can get the door very close if I pull it to parallel and and slowly release my hand but it still wants to fall away (toward the outside) about a half inch leaving a little gap.

While I do live in earthquake country, there's no evidence of movement (cracking of any kind....even in the grout) so I guess I'd suspect the hinges are worn. I just didn't know if there was any kind of adjustment in them to compensate.

Thx!

Has the distance from hinge side door-to-wall changed? I'm pretty sure this style of hinge clamps the glass in place. If it's sagging, loosen clamp, shim at bottom opposite hinge and tighten clamp.

I'd use two opposing wood shims and snug up to bottom of glass on curb, then loosen, use shims to lift door and retighten. Two people would be nice, one inside, one out. You don't want to pry at the edge of tempered glass, which can lead to a big expensive surprise!

Whew! Sorry so long to reply. I’ve actually been dealing with a flooring nightmare that has consumed most of my time the last few weeks.

Anyway, in answer to door placement, I’m about 99% sure it hasn’t budged but maybe 1/16” since new. It is literally about dead on all 3 contact sides from new. I’m thinking hinges but considering having the original glass folks take a look.
