I consider myself fairly tool smart and have installed windows for a living in the past, it didn't seem like too much of a stretch to install these shower doors...a day and a half later I really wished I'd jobbed this one out. First there is drilling eight (8) holes in ceramic tile, that only took me 4 hours, two trips to Home Depot and 4 drill bits and no, these were not cheapies from Harbor Freight, I was buying Bosch bits at Home Depot for $9 a pop. I've drilled glass and tile before with diamond bits and never had a problem but carbide bits and decent quality ceramic tile gave me a fit. Bite the bullet and buy diamond bits for $20 and save hours. (Be sure and keep the bits cooled with water to avoid overheating and burning the diamonds off.)
The instructions provided were pretty good, I give them a B for ease of understanding. Certain things are clear in hindsight but took me a while to figure out. For instance, the door fit OVER the guides attached to the threshold, not between them. It took me 20 minutes to notice the 1" x 1" drawing in the instructions but that is on me. Be sure and caulk the threshold and the center dude BEFORE the doors are hung and the restraining flange is screwed in. If you want a neat caulk line the doors will get in your way.
The quality of this product is good to very good, it operates well and looks great. I'd buy and install again, always easier the 2nd time around. If you don't have at least moderate DIY skills and a weekend I'd hesitate to tackle this install. For newbies there is also the issue of slinging around tempered glass panels in bathrooms full of hard surfaces, move carefully and good luck.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by go88 Best tub enclosure I have installed.
It was easy to install and the directions were good overall. When done it looked far better than the standard tub enclosure.

The doors went in fairly easy, however, the instructions could be a little clearer. The trick is to read all of the steps and "walk" through them, with the pieces in hand, before and during the installation process. It's easy to overlook where some of the pieces fit when assembling the rollers for the doors until scrutinizing the drawings again and again. I am doing the master bath soon and will buy this product again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SG Beautiful door - manual not so great
REALLY happy with this door. Was looking for something that almost looked like it wasn't there and this definitely does the job. Beautiful. My builder did struggle to install this.. he said the manual required someone to have a PHD :D worth the work though.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by slave0418 Disappointed
Bathtub sliding door almost done but I am very disappointed with Kohler Co. One small roller part is missing from package. Dawn from customer service hang up on me while looking for my part and I had to call again, answer all the same questions and now I have to wait for 3 to 5 days for part delivered. O, they included in package 2 same strips of some parts but AXLE from roller was missing.
I have called them on 05-19-16.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sangelo Poor quality shower door
Kohler disappoints with this shower door. Parts are plastic and cheap. One door will not slide smoothly and screeches with a metal on metal sound. Installer says the parts are the issue. Will go with different company next time.
