how does the guide stay in place and not move around. I don't see that it is self-adhesive?

My unit had a fastening screw provided in the packaging. And there is a predrilled hole in the bottom surface of the door guide--presumably for inserting the included mounting screw so as to fasten it to your existing shower stall's frame. Please note that if your present stall's frame doesn't have a hole for such mounting already present(which mine didn't) then you'll need to do as I did--place door Read More
My unit had a fastening screw provided in the packaging. And there is a predrilled hole in the bottom surface of the door guide--presumably for inserting the included mounting screw so as to fasten it to your existing shower stall's frame. Please note that if your present stall's frame doesn't have a hole for such mounting already present(which mine didn't) then you'll need to do as I did--place door guide in its desired position (with the stall's doors either swung out or removed)--mark the position for drilling the pilot hole for the fastening screw on the bottom rail of the stall enclosure. Then, using a drill bit approximately 1/3-1/2 diameter of the fastening screw, drill your pilot hole in the appropriate part of the stall's frame. You don't want to use a drill bit as wide as the screw since the screw (typical sheet metal fastener type) will sooner or later become too loose. Alternatively you could use double sided mounting tape--provided such is rated fairly well in terms of holding strength, and is rated for wet applications. Or you could use the second sort of mounting option I almost went with--Gorilla brand glue. The main reason I didn't consider double-sided tape is that there was barely sufficient clearance between the bottom of the present doors and the guide's door channels. Adding even a smallish fraction of an inch to this guide's height would've made for doors in my shower enclosure having very restricted freedom of movement. But no matter what sort of adhesive you might use, if such is your mounting choice, take great care to thoroughly clean the appropriate surface of the frame--have that aluminum frame sparkling clean. And absolutely dry as the proverbial sack of sand. Fact is for a similar type of mounting for a bathroom wall fixture(using double-sided tape) I used Comet type cleanser to remove all foreign matter--grime or whatever. Then flushed same surface with water; then wiped it with isopropyl (a.k.a.: rubbing) alcohol using paper towels. Then let surface sit for another 1-2 hours, so as to insure all traces of alcohol evaporated, before finally applying tape or glue. One other caution--let tape, or glue, sit for a good long 24 hours before item is used (or you get any water on it). Such is always the best approach so as to allow whatever type of adhesive to fully "cure". Better yet if you can apply some sort of pressure(clamp or whatever) to the item, whilst the adhesive is "curing", your mounting will likely have a much greater durability. Sorry if I got a bit "long-winded" regarding recommendations but have had a few-too-many instructions for whatever product that were so minimal as to be next to worthless for the average d-i-y type of consumer. Hope this helps! Read Less

It will fit many sliding doors but such is with a caution of measuring your present doors' thickness and comparing same thickness against the width of the guide's door channels as given in the product's description. You'd probably want to allow for something like 1/16 inch free "play" for your doors to have fairly unrestricted freedom of movement. As for details of mounting please refer to my Read More
It will fit many sliding doors but such is with a caution of measuring your present doors' thickness and comparing same thickness against the width of the guide's door channels as given in the product's description. You'd probably want to allow for something like 1/16 inch free "play" for your doors to have fairly unrestricted freedom of movement. As for details of mounting please refer to my recommendations to potential customer: "Nancy". Alternatively Home Depot's online store lists at least half-a-dozen different door stall guides and careful measurements of your existing doors compared with dimensions given for each product will likely provide a door guide appropriate for your needs.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Finely found a part that fit. I was looking for this item for a long time. I live in a mobile home and as many of you know everything in one is just a little off from the how happy I am norm. well this one fit fine after being without this for years you only can imagine how happy I am August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sliding bottom shower door guide The delivery was slow, but the price and quality were very good to excellent. The instructions were minimal and may be improved some. The installation was easy and fast for the average DIY. I will recommended to anybody that is good with DIY projects. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value Thought I had already reviewed this item but will do so again. This item's dimensions came closest to matching the dimensions of our preexisting shower stall's frame where we just moved about 2 months ago. Though I still had to drill a mounting hole in same aluminum shower stall frame to fasten this door guide to the aluminum frame (which likely indicates that the OEM bottom door guide for the frame probably was affixed with nothing more than double-sided adhesive tape and why it was missing when we moved in). And had to file a little "lip", on the back side of the guide, so as to insure that the guide fitted flush up against the bottom rail for the shower stall frame. After making those two fairly quick "customization" type modifications everyone in our household agrees it looks, and works, like it was the OEM part for the stall enclosure's frame. Would've probably rated it 5 stars but for the limited time frame we've had it in service. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Just moved into new house where previous owners had shower enclosure with typical sliding doors. Unfortunately bottom door guide was missing. Thus measured bottom aluminum rail of enclosure and found this item to most closely match dimensions of same bottom rail. Though one dimension of this guide didn't quite match up and that is a small "lip" of the guide which apparently slips over the top, vertical, wall of the bottom aluminum rail. In order for the guide to seat up closely enough to that vertical wall of the bottom rail(so that a pilot-hole could be drilled into the horizontal surface of same rail with which to fasten the acrylic door guide to the rail with screw thoughtfully provided by the manufacturer of this guide)I found it necessary to take a coarse file to the "lip" to essentially grind that surface more-or-less flush with that part of the guide which butts up against the vertical wall of the bottom rail--a matter of no more 15-20 minutes. All of which tells me that the OEM bottom door guide(which came with the original shower-door kit) was probably fastened with something like a thin strip of double-sided tape. Which may very well explain why the OEM bottom door guide didn't survive as well as the shower door itself. But since i couldn't readily locate the OEM's website I was pretty much expecting such a need for similar "customization" of this product. And to give credit to such efforts everyone who has inspected my installation has commented that it looks, and works, just like it had been tailor-made for the doors. June 14, 2016
