Shower Door Tubular Pull Handles Loose

I have a frameless tubular shower door handle back to back, similar to the picture listed. They are loose now and I have tried to tighten them with allen jack but cannot, dont know what I am doing wrong. Is this a two man job and do both handles have to be held together in order to tighten. Can anyone please help? Has anyone done this?

Re: Shower Door Tubular Pull Handles Loose


There should be 2 small set screws on the inside of the shower on the underside of the handle tubing. Those screws actually only hold one side of the handle in place.

What you'll want to do is loosen both of those, usually with a small allen key, and you will be able to slide one side of the handle off.

Once it is off, look at the 2 posts it was mounted to - those are what you want to tighten. They usually have 2 styles, one with either a flathead screwdriver or larger allen key.

** there should be clear plastic or vinyl washers in between any of the glass and the metal, MAKE SURE those are still in place. The last thing you want to do is continually tighten metal to glass.

After tightening the 2 posts (They will actually pull the opposite side of the handle tighter) replace the remaining side of the handle the same way you took it off.
