Rattling Shower door.

The lower part of the folding shower door, see arrow, is rattling against the shower tray when we are on the move.

The top of the shower door is held in place by a strap and is no problem.

Any ideas of how to stop, or cut down on the problem, of the lower part of the door rattling appreciated.

Hi.

Cut a couple of 2" long pads from some stick on draught excluder available in any DIY outlet, stick them on so they act as a buffer between anything that is rattling.

Just watching a shifty looking geezer in the library searching intently through the 'S' section of the dictionary, he's stopped now.

I think he's up to something. . .. . . ray......

We had the same problem with our last van.
I found the best way to solve the problem was to buy a meter length of black foam pipe lagging, and slip it over the edge of the shower door.

I've stuck some Draught excluder to the door, found some I had earlier, and that seems to be ok.

The foam pipe and door protectors may get used later if the excluder doesn't do its job after getting wet.

Thanks to all.

If only they would make black foam pipe lagging in white
Gets my vote though for rattling shower doors.

I got some of those small plastic wedges that builders use and just pop in where necessary before travelling, simple job to pull out when you want to shut the doors and back in when finished.

Tucano - If only they would make black foam pipe lagging in white

We used to have white pipe lagging in our Printing Factory many years ago - it was called Asbestos.

For some reason 'Elf and Safety had it taken away!

Sombre note - without Health and Safety regulations many of us would be long gone by now.
