Framed Shower Door Hinge

A hinge shower door is a singular glass door that opens outwards. It is operated by two hinges, one top and one is on the bottom, which are fitted to a wall profile on the wall. The full width of the hinge door opens out into your bathroom, maximizing the space for ease of entering and exiting. Make sure that you have allowed enough space for this. Hinge doors can be used on their own to fit into an alcove or with side panel to form a shower enclosure or cubicle. Shower door hinges are prone to rust formation because of high moisture levels. If hinges aren’t heavy-duty enough to support the weight of the doors, they may sag and lose the ability to close properly. You may be able to replace the hinges rather than the entire door and frame. Rusted hinges require a bit more effort to remove, and you need to take care not to damage the frame or mounting area in order to properly install the replacement


  1. Examine the frame around the hinges to find the screws holding the hinges to the

frame and door. Dip a wire brush in a bowl of decalcifying cleaner and scrub the hinges to remove any rust or grime around the hinges and screws.

  1. Ask an assistant to hold the door steady as you remove the screws with a Philips

screwdriver. If the screws are stripped, pry them up with a flat-head screwdriver, a pair of locking pliers or a chisel.

  1. Pull the door away from the frame and remove any of the remaining screws and

hinge pieces.

  1. Screw the replacement hinges into the screw holes in the door. Ask your assistant to

hold the door while you reattach the hinges to the frame.
