    Good afternoon

    One of these clips has broken - they hold the door on the quadrant shower screen.

    Do you know what they are called and where to get replacements?

    I've got no idea where the screen is from - it's been here since I bought the house. It's tiled in, so I would much rather not replace it.

    Thank you

    Very difficult to identify, unless someone has seen that exact one. By the looks of it no-one has. It will take a lot of trudging about the internet looking at spare parts suppliers unless there's a makers name on it.

    You may be lucky but a lot of these enclosures are from Asia and are one offs and parts are specific to that make and you'll find it nigh in impossible to get replacements.
    Is it a sliding door or hinged and are those pieces what they slide on or hinge on.

    one of the reasons why well-known, household brands are advisable.

    When you say it's tiled in, are the wall profiles tiled up to?
    They may come out (if they arent lipped behind the tiles) and you'll be able to fit profiles of new screen into the existing channels!

    Might also be worth trying the shower doctor!

    Thanks all. I'll email the shower doctor. It's a sliding door. Those pins hold the top of the door into a retaining channel.

    The wall tiles are OK - the doors are fixed onto the tiles as usual. It's the floor tiles - whoever fitted it has tiled up to the enclosure and grouted it in place.
