3 door shower door installation
 
We have a Maxx 3 door glass enclosure for our tub that has come apart - all that is where it should be are the tracks on the sides that are screwed into the enclosure.

The top rod seems to only have one option as to where it should go but it is not attached in any manner that we can see so when we try to put the doors back on the tracks it comes off.

Can someone please try to help me with this - it came apart this morning when I was in the tub so we sort of just grabbed everything so nothing would fall and break and now are not sure what to put where.:(

Post a picture of the parts----I install a lot of shower doors but the names mean nothing to me--

A link to the manufacturer would do---

Assuming these are by-pass doors and not folding doors...
Obviously the doors hang from the top rail and the top rail is rarely fastened to anything. It just sits on the tops of the wall-frames. It all depends on the weight of the doors and gravity to keep everything in place. I always also caulked the top rails to kind of glue them in.

The doors can be rehung by tilting the doors to match the rollers to the rail channel. One at a time and there is a critical-path. May have to remove some small stops first don't know. This is going to take two people probably as you have found out.:)

Another possibility on larger bathrooms is to install a walk-in shower with no door at all, only glass panels surrounding the shower area."
Patiosclotures,

Are you drunk,
or what?:)

What the heck does any of what you just said have to do with this thread?

I'm partially convinced someone is developing a bot to respond to forum posts that uses search results/etc to produce a response.

I suppose that could be possible in the future but they also need to program that Bot to read the whole damned thread and then understand what that thread is saying.:)

Never going to happen - we can't even get humans to do that.

Some of their posts are on topic, but lately, it seems that they are just throwing crap out there, with nothing having to do with the original question.

Can I have a big AMEN !

I don't think these weird responses have anything to do with Bots. Zombies maybe, but not Bots. The world is full of chemistry experiments and seems to be getting worse.:)
