Whether you’re a seasoned DIYer or a complete novice, this comprehensive guide will empower you to confidently replace old or broken shower glass clips. Follow these step-by-step instructions for a seamless and professional-looking repair.


Before embarking on this task, gather the necessary tools and materials. You’ll need:

– Replacement shower glass clips

– Screwdriver or hex key

– Measuring tape or ruler

– Spirit level (optional)

– Eye protection

– Gloves (optional)

Removing the Old Clips

1. Begin by donning your eye protection and gloves, if desired.

2. Locate the old shower glass clips. They are typically small, L-shaped metal brackets that secure the glass panels to the wall or frame.

3. Using the screwdriver or hex key, carefully remove the screws holding the clips in place.

4. Gently pry the clips away from the glass panels. If they are particularly stubborn, use a flat-head screwdriver or putty knife to assist in their removal.

Installing the New Clips

1. Position the new shower glass clips over the glass panels. Ensure that they are properly aligned and flush with the edge of the glass.

2. Using the screws provided with the new clips, insert them into the holes in the clips and the wall or frame.

3. Tighten the screws securely, but do not overtighten. Use a spirit level to ensure the clips are properly aligned both horizontally and vertically.

4. Repeat the process for all the remaining clips.

Replacing the Glass Panels

1. Once the new clips are installed, carefully lift the glass panels and slide them into the clips.

2. Adjust the glass panels as necessary to ensure they are properly aligned and centered.

3. Gently press on the clips to secure the glass panels in place. Do not apply excessive force, as this could damage the glass.

Finishing Touches

1. Check all the clips to ensure they are firmly tightened. If needed, use a screwdriver or hex key to make any necessary adjustments.

2. Wipe down the shower glass panels and clips with a clean cloth to remove any dirt or debris.

3. Step back and admire your handiwork! You have successfully replaced your old or broken shower glass clips.


If you encounter any difficulties during the replacement process, refer to the following troubleshooting tips:

– If the screws are difficult to remove, apply a penetrating oil or lubricant to loosen them.

– If the glass panels are crooked or misaligned, adjust the clips accordingly.

– If the clips do not seem to be securing the glass properly, check if the screws are fully tightened.

– If the glass panels are rattling or making noise, tighten the clips or add a thin layer of silicone sealant between the glass and the clips.
