Drip rail installation

A home owner from Anaheim says:
Hello, I am looking to replace the sweep rail on two of my shower doors, one with 24" and the orther with 34", and have couple of questions:

1. I would like to secure the new rail using the screws, and will need to drill a couple of holes. Is that safe to do? Will that break the glass?

2. Or if I choose to use the double-sided tape. Do you provide that with the rails?

3. Do you customize the size of the rail, to fit with 34" door?

Good morning! I hope I can help you.

1. Yes, you can drill holes but there is a risk of breaking the glass. If you decide to go that route then the only thing I can say is to be as careful as possible.

2. We do not have double stick tape, but you should be able to find some at a local hardware store. If you're nervous about breaking the glass then this might be the better choice.

3. We do not customize our rails, but you can cut it down with a fine-tooth hacksaw like our 75-023.
