If you notice that water is dripping from a long gap between the door and the wall, or the door and the edge of the shower, take steps to block the gap. A door seal strip fitted to the glass door fills the gap while maintaining the elegant look of the frameless glass door.

Step 1

Clean the edge of the door at the gap with a glass cleaner and allow it to dry thoroughly.

Step 2

Measure the length of the door where it needs to be sealed.

Step 3

Cut an adhesive door seal strip to the measurements that you found in step 2 using a utility knife. Door seal strips have a U-shaped profile, allowing them to clasp the door securely.

Step 4

Peel off the plastic strip, revealing the adhesive edge in the cup of the U.

Step 5

Press the door seal strip to the edge of the glass door.

Step 6

Allow the adhesive to cure for 24 hours. Avoid using the door until it is fully cured.
