Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tony Looks great, though with two issues...
Short version of the review…
The door looks great, the installation process was long but doable, but the allen-head adjusting screws made it impossible to work with. So after stripping them I had to extract them out and change them with Phillips-head screws and it worked much better. The glass door itself should’ve been a little wider too.
Longer version of the review…
This was my first time installing a shower door. After comparing many different shower doors online I decided to go with this one because of the look, the cost, the availability, the coating that they put on it, and because it was adjustable to fit my older house that has out-of-plumb and out-of-square walls.
The installation instructions were for the most part easy to follow. It would probably be a good idea to read through them slowly before unboxing anything else so that you can see down the line how things will work before you get there.
Perhaps the most challenging thing about the installation by far was the screws that came with the door. To adjust for my out-of-plumb walls, the framework allows for about 1 ½” of play, give or take. The doorjamb fits inside a wall-mounted bracket. Four plastic clamps hold these two pieces firmly together. Each of the plastic clamps has one allen-head screw going through it, and you would normally tighten and loosen these accordingly in order to tighten or loosen the doorjamb on/off the wall-mounted bracket. You need to do this to adjust the door to meet the strike jamb correctly. These allen-head screws took a lot of elbow grease to turn and they strip VERY easily. So after stripping almost all of them I had to purchase an extractor bit set, take them out, and replace them with #8 ¾” Phillips-head screws. This made it WAY easier to tighten and loosen with my drill gun. So after this whole debacle, the installation went a lot more smoothly.
Another thing is that I wish that the glass door itself was just a little wider. From tile to tile, the distance at the top (60”) is 34,” and at the bottom it is 34 ¼.” The door itself is just shy of 29.” I adjusted the jambs as far as they could possibly go, and on the bottom side I can start to see the holes on the doorjamb that are cut to fit the adjustment clamps. If the glass door itself was at 30” it would have been a near-perfect fit. After calling the company I found that I couldn’t get this replaced with a 30” door, so I’m stuck with it. Oh well.
In all, it looks great and I’m glad I bought it despite the issues of width, and the screws that came with it.
Hope this helps!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Customer Very nice and quality Product
We remodel the bath and install a standup shower and that's when we're looking to install a glass door, checked at local glass shops and the prices were extremely high, and then came across this product at local Home Depot. Best price and quality, the only thing is that the handle is not that sturdy and it requires alkaline wrench to tight and the screws are not very durable and they become loose after every few months and needs tightened. Other than that it has been a great addition and gets a lot of compliments.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kcmocarguy First set were damaged during shipping
When we went to the store to pick the door up the packaging was in rough shape. We were concerned that the glass might be damaged so we checked it and it was fine. When we got it home we we cut the packaging all off and the frame was badly damaged. We took it back and the Home Depot people took it back with apologies, ordered another set, and had this one shipped to our home at no charge.
We were disappointed but the treatment we received was tremendous.
