Shower door

I just bought an Irvine folding shower door. But the white rivets on the shower walls are in the way. Any ideas on what to do?Click image for larger version

Remove the rivets, they are just covers for screws. Fill the holes with caulk, caulk the new strip and use the rivets on the new strip.

Closer picture, they don't look like screw covers. But thanks for the reply.

The center comes out and then you can pull the entire rivet & channel out. It's what is used to hold the channel to the wall. Transfer the holes very carefully and use the rivets to hold the new one in place.

Now you can see how the center pulls out and lets the legs retract which allows you to pull the entire rivet and channel out.

The center is too flush to grab.

Then repeat what you did on the one you removed or use a putty knife under the channel and pry them out.

How did you wind up attaching it? I'm debating between the shower guards or the folding door (and leaning towards the latter).

It is a peal and stick set up. One screw into wall for the door catch. Used almost whole tube of clear silicone calk. Wife likes it a lot better than shower curtain. And it was like $75 shipped. I like that I didn't have to drill into pan. Seems sturdy enough. Hardest part was pulling the white rivets. If I were to do it again , I would drill a tiny screw into center of rivet to pull center pin. I just pry ed out the rivets with car trim tools. And caulking holes like old coot said.

Oh it took less than an hour to install. Mainly due to timid cutting of bottom track, cut a little checked fit, cut some more. Another delay was there is a rubber door catch fastened to the top of the door for shipping. Remove it from door before installing it in upper door track. It was hard to get to after installing top rail. You need it to secure the door in closed position. I thought I had lost a part. It is a lot better than a shower curtain, it's light weight, and no glass to break.

Wow, really nice. Oddly, I don't think our shower has the rivets, it's just glued to the wall. It also leaks along the bottom channel where the wall liner meets the pan. Did you need to add caulking there?

On my original punch out list the shower walls were loose and they were reglued, they might have added rivets at that time. Don't remember, if that was the case it would make it easier to do if they were not there.

I'd like to order one tonight if that's possible. Can you post the model # and the link to the site where you purchased it from? Looks like there's a lot of resellers out there.

Or do I need to customer measure for my shower?

Thanks

Grotto
