I'm in a new house and the shower door has come off the hinge at the top. There is no thread in the door so it doesn't look like it's a normal screw, maybe some form of pushed in pin or something?

Any thoughts on this? I've searched online but don't even know what terms to use and imagine there must be tons of different brands, doors, screws, etc.

There was a peg sticking up at top on door, it looks to have snapped off. You might be able to bodge a repair by dropping a large flat head bolt down into door hinge from above .
Or take off the cap at the top of the door and fit a nut and bolt into the broken cap leaving end of bolt sticking up to locate into frame.

Have a search for shower screen / door pivot hinge

Great, thanks! I have found some possible replacements now, just need to see if my type is in there.

Good ideas. At the minute I have a tea spoon shoved down there (upside down) which has worked well for the past 10 days. However we have only just moved into the house, so I'd like the repair to be a good one as we'll be here for several years.

I'll look into the peg thing you mentioned and also consider a bolt too

Is that a Bathstore shower screen?

I'm not actually sure. I can't see any markings and we've only just moved in, so not sure where it came from
