SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

shower door sweep

A quick learner from Las Vegas says:
My shower door has apparently never had a door sweep installed on it. I recall a plastic strip being there, but that came off years ago and I don't know how it was mounted. I don't see how a sweep would be installed since there are no holes for screws. The frame appears to be chrome or plastic. Not only that but there is a ~1/4 inch trough next to the glass that actually traps the water. The bottom part of the frame is identical to the top part of the frame, giving me the impression that the door can be reversed if needed. Is there a door sweep that will work in this situation? If I use part 10-325 would I be able to screw it into the frame or is there another way to mount it?

I wouldn't recommend drilling holes for the 10-325 sweep. I don't see a lot of room on your door and you don't want to hit the glass. I would wager your old seal was once installed using two-way tape. That's pretty common for shower doors. You can install the 10-325 the same way. Check with a local hardware store to see what they recommend, exactly.
