I am a complete DIY idiot. My pressed steel bath which was installed when my house was built (80's) is on the move!!

The screw adjust plastic feet have become unstable and are pushing out of position when the bath is in use, causing the sealant to split.

I think that the feet connected in the middle giving some sort of lateral support. This connection has now failed.

All my local diy stores tell me that you cannot get feet without a bath.
Is this true?
If so how can I support the bath?

2 suggestions.
Get a can or two of expanding foam. It sticks very well. Squirt it up under the back edge of the bath as far as you can, between bath and wall.

Make some folding wedges out of chunky wood, and wedge and glue them under the bath with Gripfill or Silicone. Use loads of wood and goo.

Only problem you'll have then is getting the bug_ger out one day.
