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.
