Choosing the Right Hardware for Your Needs

While the glass you choose serves as the highlight of your shower enclosure, the right shower hardware products can significantly enhance the overall look and feel of your bathroom. At HGM, there are several shower door hardware accessories to choose from, which we’ll go over below.

Most Common Hardware Types

At HGM, some of the most common types of shower hardware we use include:


Clips accomplish a minimalist look while stabilizing the glass. Clips can be used instead of U-channels, depending on the type of tile in your shower.


U-channels are often used where the glass meets the granite, marble, or tile and allow a shower glass installer to neatly adjust stationary panels of glass.

Handle Types

At HGM, we also carry a wide variety of shower handle types to choose from, including:

  • Classic pull
  • Square knob
  • Round knob
  • Hinge Types

At HGM, we carry a couple of types of hinge options. Your shower door installer will discuss whether side mount hinges or pivot hinges will work best for your unique setup and can help you choose a finish that will complement the other hardware in your shower.

Very Pleased and Highly Recommend

HGM Glass installed our shower door when we remodeled our bathroom. They were professional, thorough, and experienced. Our visit to their showroom was very informative and they explained the procedure and answered our questions. I was quickly contacted by the team that takes the measurements and does the template and they arrived at our home, on time, a couple of days later. They were meticulous and explained that this was a custom product and would be made to our specifications and preferences. The finished product was delivered and installed less than a week later by their experienced installation crew. It looks beautiful! Very pleased and highly recommend HGM Glass.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose the right finish for my shower door hardware?

When choosing a finish for your shower door hardware, consider the overall design and color scheme of your bathroom. Popular finishes include chrome, brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, and matte black. It's also important to choose a finish that is resistant to corrosion and tarnishing, especially in a moist bathroom environment.

How do I maintain my shower door hardware?

Regular cleaning with a soft cloth and mild, non-abrasive cleaner is essential to maintain the appearance and longevity of shower door hardware. Avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage the finish. It's also important to periodically check and tighten any loose screws or components.

What should I consider when selecting hinges for my shower door?

When selecting hinges, consider the weight and thickness of your shower door, as this will determine the type and size of the hinge required. Additionally, decide whether you prefer a pivot or a wall-mount hinge, depending on the door's design and functionality.

How does the hardware affect the installation of a frameless shower door?

The choice of hardware significantly impacts the installation of a frameless shower door, as it must provide adequate support and alignment without the reinforcement of a frame. Properly selected and installed hardware ensures the door's stability, alignment, and seamless operation.

Can I replace my shower door hardware without replacing the entire door?

In many cases, yes, you can replace shower door hardware without the need for a new door, provided the new hardware is compatible with your existing door in terms of size, style, and attachment points. This can be a cost-effective way to update the look of your shower.
