    Hi,

    The shower roller screen in my en-suite has been put in wrongly so that the door hangs at an angle. Are there any brackets around that have an adjustable height on them? Heres a picture of mine

    It looks like its adjustable to me, you will need an allan key.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately it's not, I've had the door off to clean it and there's no height adjustment

    What bits have you dismantled? As buck51 says it looks adjustable and most runners will have a tiny bit of adjustment.

    It looks like loosening off the chrome bit by unscrewing the hex screw would allow the part fixed to the glass to slide up in the slot you can just see the other side of the glass.

    Alternatively undoing the Allen screw in the top roller might allow the part to be twisted to get a cam effect.

  7. I'm pretty sure that ALL sliding shower doors have a small adjustment but maybe you don't have enough adjustment left? How much out of square are we talking? How big is the gap?

    It certainly looks like the allen screw when loosened will allow the glass to be slid up or down. There should be clear rubber washers behind it, maybe they are stuck or sealed in position and you need to loosen them? Obviously, the bottom sprung castors would need to be released first.
