After installation, the door keeps coming off the track. After re-alignment, it still keeps coming off the track.

I have yet to figure out why these shower doors are so expensive. The Vista Pivot II is one of the more reasonably-priced models, but still too much money for what it is.
Installation isn't too bad. There are more parts than I expected (this is the first pivot door I've installed - others have been bypass tub doors). All diagrams in the instructions are for a right pivot, so be prepared to mentally reverse everything if you have a left pivot. Sounds simple but the diagrams also alternate between inside-the-shower and outside-the-shower perspective, and it's easy to get things backwards.
The glass is on the thin side and has a tendency to vibrate when opening the door. The magnetic strip is attached by a couple of crimp spots top and bottom and made a very loud, persistent vibration noise when opening the door. This was easily cured by running a very thin bead of silicone down the length of the magnet to prevent movement.
Overall, not a bad choice, and it looks decent when installed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grumpa Nice door for the price
Directions included with the unit differed from the manufacturer on-line instructions. This replaced a fifteen year old similar model, so I had a good idea how to put it together, others could find it confusing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ch4bs Parts received damaged
Two major components were received damaged. Had to contact the supplier to have them replaced. They were very helpful except they do not have parts in stock and need to order them. They advised it would take 2/4 weeks to get them. Seems like a long time to replace standard parts. I have no choice but to wait for them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JohnD Great customer service from Kohler
This is the second time for me installing this product. The first time was about 15 years ago, but now my bright brass bathroom is being updated with brushed nickel. Installation did not go that well because I broke the fixed panel. Kohler was happy to send me a replacement panel at no charge even though I believe myself at fault. The installation instructions could use some improvement. One problem with them is that all the illustrations are for a right pivot only. I was installing the door with a left pivot - so you have to turn the illustrations around in your head.Some tips: 1) Don't trust their instructions on installation of the upper pivot piece - or your interpretation of the instructions. Line it up and measure to see if it matches the bottom pivot hole. If it doesn't you have it installed backwards. 2) Place masking tape over the threshold piece to protect it from scratching during the installation of the door. The door needs to be tilted into place and it is easy to scratch the threshold. An assistant could also come in handy at this point. 3) Wear gloves and safety googles or glasses. I was holding the fixed panel when it shattered and glass went everywhere. Even safety glass can cut, and I can't imagine how bad it would be in the eyes.
Overall, this shower door in the tangle design looks great! Kohler customer service is excellent.
