Adhesive to Retrofit Shower Door Handle to Glass Shower Door

Online I came across a post from Chris about new adhesives that work great to adhere metal shower handles to a glass shower door.  Can you recommend any specific product names?  I’ve seen some sites that suggest rear-view mirror adhesives such as J-B Weld.  Might those work?

Thanks.

Hi Skip,

Yes, I think the adhesives you are talking about may work just fine. Over the years, I have tried a number of different ones, with differing levels of success. The truth is, I have had the least success with the ones that are supposed to work the best. These are the UV (ultraviolet light) cure adhesives for glass and metal.

I have had the best results using two-part epoxies. The challenging thing about using them is that they are pretty runny, and are hard to work with on a vertical surface. I recently gave this “STIK’N SEAL” adhesive a try… It’s made by Locktite, and it works great! It is also pretty viscous, so it is a bit easier to work with on a door that is already installed. The shower is a pretty wet environment, so you want something that can hold up to extreme conditions as well.

Give it a try!
