Nice work and thanks for posting this, I have to do the same fix. Our shower door was open when we pulled the slide in and was snapped off (head up my butt moment). I'm pretty sure we can fix it like you did. I have to dig the bottom post out as it snapped flush, I believe the upper is still in the door. Thanks again!
Hi all, I tried a method another member here used successfully on his trailer and it worked for a brief time before falling to the ground. That was making a "back plate" that bolts to the back side of the rod mount then using 3M tape to stick each end to the wall. I'm using the hinged rod that folds in or outside of the shower for more room. It does have some weight to it. I first tried the 3M removeable tape as described and it held for a little while then tried the 3m super strength double sided strip on a roll. That didn't last more than a couple days.
So I need to actuall screw the end brackets into the wall. I figure I can use anchors on the inside wall but am nervous abou the outside wall, it's only like an inch thick. Really don't want to pierce my outter wall. Are there specific anchors for this scenario? Haven't tried a stud finder yet but since they're aluminum it probably won't help anyway. I love the extra room this rod provides but would love it more if I could mount it more securely. Any ideas would be great. Thanks!
