Are you tired of your bathroom glass hinges wobbling, squeaking, or falling off altogether? Don’t despair! Replacing old bathroom glass hinges is an easy and inexpensive DIY project that you can complete in an afternoon. With just a few tools and materials, you can give your bathroom a fresh and updated look.

Tools and Materials

New bathroom glass hinges (available at most hardware stores)


Drill (optional)

Glass cleaner

Measuring tape


Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Remove the Old Hinges

Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes.

Open the bathroom door fully and place a towel or blanket underneath to catch any falling debris.

Locate the screws holding the old hinges in place and use a screwdriver to remove them.

Gently remove the old hinges from the door and the frame.

2. Clean the Surfaces

Use glass cleaner to wipe down the surfaces where the new hinges will be installed. This will remove any dirt or debris that could interfere with the adhesive.

Allow the surfaces to dry completely.

3. Measure and Mark the Hinge Locations

Use a measuring tape to determine the correct placement of the new hinges.

Mark the hinge locations on the door and the frame with a pencil.

The hinges should be evenly spaced and aligned with each other.

4. Install the New Hinges

Apply a small amount of adhesive to the back of each new hinge.

Carefully align the hinges with the marked locations and press them into place.

Use a screwdriver to drive the screws into the hinges, securing them to the door and the frame.

Tighten the screws securely but avoid overtightening them.

5. Inspect and Adjust

Open and close the door several times to make sure the new hinges are working properly.

If the door does not open or close smoothly, loosen the screws slightly and adjust the hinge positioning.

Retighten the screws once the door is operating smoothly.


Replacing old bathroom glass hinges is a straightforward and rewarding DIY project. With a little effort and the right tools, you can give your bathroom a fresh and updated look. Remember to follow the steps carefully and take your time to ensure a successful installation.
