        Re-assembling a Framed Shower Door Sign In/Join 
        posted
        So I decided to take apart my framed shower stall to give the frame a new finish. The finish turned out great, but I'm having issues with some of the re-assembly. Most of it appears trivial, but the shower door itself has proved otherwise. I cannot get the channel in the door-frame pieces to wrap onto the rubber gasket/glass. It is a very tight fit, and it was certainly difficult when I removed the door-frame pieces. Any suggestion or tricks to this? Any help is appreciated.

        Thanks,
        David

        I'm not really sure of what you're saying, but if it's a problem getting something in or on a seal, try using liquid soap as a lubricant

        I bought some Vaseline and it worked great.
