Rated 5 out of 5Â by averagehomeowner I would purchase again
This door has been installed for about a year now. It has held up very well, the only issue I had was with the threshold seal, the plastic bottom edge cracked. I took advantage of a promo sale and was able to get it for $256 with free shipping! It came nicely packaged without any damage. I read the reviews first and there were many complaints about the allen wrench so I used my own. Yes the screws are not the best, I would imagine they would strip if they needed to be removed and reinstalled. I ordered the 34" door even though my walls are only 32 3/4" plum. I did not have to extend the sides of the adjustment, the track fit perfectly as if it were a custom fit.The biggest precaution when ordering is to make sure you get the correct size door. WORD TO THE WISE, GO ONE SIZE UP AND ORDER A LARGER DOOR!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mark Awesome looking, functional shower door
This Kohler shower door really dresses up my small bathroom. It looks like an expensive door yet is much cheaper than the quotes I had from local glass companies. It is easy to clean and I love the magnetic rollers that hold the door solidly closed. My walls were a 1 Â½â out of plum and I was able to make adjustments for a tight fit. The chrome handle is high quality. The bottom of door has a plastic lip that directs water inward so that the water is not sprayed outside. My only complaint- I wish the door was taller.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Mike Poor hardware - size matters
The door came packaged well and not damaged. The hardware (screws) sent with the door was of such poor quality the allen wrench head stripped before final adjustment. I had to drill the screw heads off the door and purchase strong phillips head screws. The final adjustment - the 34 inch door barely fit, too small. My opening was exactly 34 inches and the walls were perfectly plum, so I ordered the 34 inch door. The glass door could have been a full inch to 1 1/2 inches bigger! I had to extend both sides of the adjustment so far out that they barely held to the frame and you could see the cut outs on the framing from the inside of the shower. Nice door! - too small and poor hardware.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Asim Order a size bigger and buy a new good quality alen wrench for installation
Okay this door is finally installed and look awesome. Image of this door shows glass to have some pattern on it though it has been described as clear so I was a little concerned how it comes out to be. So the first thing I did when I received the door to open the box to see glass and yes it was clear. What a relief.
One problem which a lot of people are having it with those tiny screws on inner side of door jambs. This door is not geting five star reviews only because of those screws. I found nothing was wrong with the screws you don't need to spend 1$ a piece to get stainless screws. What you actually need a good quality stainless steel Allen wrench. That black steal wrench which came with the product is such a poor quality that it ends starts getting round when you try to tighten those screws. I learned it hard way after spending few hours on those screws and thinking about doing what others did, to buy new stainless Steel screws. Then I found a stainless steel alen wrench in my tools which worked as a champ. So remember not to waste any time trying that cheap alen wrench which came with the hardware. It is shamefull that Kohler hasn't figured that out yet.
Other interesting thing which I found was it is not mentioned any where ( at least I didn't find) that these doors are adjustable to about two inches. So order a two inch size bigger then what you are looking for. I ordered a 34" door for my 34" opening. Now door is extended from each side to fit into a 34" opening. If I had a 32" opening this door wouldnt need to be extended on each side. Now I have 2" of extra aluminum showing instead do two more inch of glass which makes this door less stable. So order a 36" door if you have 34" opening. I put silicon cocking on each side where door jambs and door extenders meet to provide some more stability.
The glass came attached to a aluminum piece on the side where it pivots. There was a clear rubber seal inside which shouldn't be showing but it was crumbled a little on one side and a piece of metal inside to hold the screw was also showing. It should have not gone un noticed by the quality inspection. It was to problematic for me to return the door for that reason and get a new door. So I decided to install the one which came with it. Overall I liked the door it looks good and a good price but remember to order a two inch bigger size and investing in a good quality wrench. Some how I'm unable to upload pictures from my iPad to back up my review. Look like I may have to download on my computer first to upload. I'll try to do this another time.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by tennisman The Kohler Shower door was an excellent purchase.
The shower door was fairly easy to install as the instructions were good. It is very high quality and a solid door-no creaking or racking.The glass on the door has some sort of water shield that sheds the water droplets so no film or water marks are left after taking a shower. I am very pleased with the purchase and would definitely purchase Kohler products in the future.
