Got locked in the shower!

Took my first shower - it is a large corner one with glass doors. Shut the doors but when I was done found out that the latch had swung down locking it from the outside and I was stuck! My DH was outside but soon was back so I just had to wait BUT so scary.....I could not get out. Lesson learned make sure the latch is firmly in the open position before shutting the doors.

Sorry to say, but that is pretty funny!!! At least you know what happened and it should not happen again! Or a great way to play a trick on your DW!!

I am glad to see that someone else has been terrorized by the shower door latch.
Only happened once but I check the latch now every time.

Well sounded funny but would have been bad had not the DW been close by. Think I would try to snug up the latch to prevent future occurrences Later RJD.

My wife has always worried about that, I did not think it could happen. She's right again!

Our latch swings on the horizontal and still was able to lock DW in the shower. Need a latch to latch the latch open. lol

Hold a rubber band between your two fore fingers and thumbs, stretch it out.

Now slide it between the latch and frame work, let it relax.

With luck this should act as a rubber wedge that will hold the latch and can be removed with ease.
