My glass screen shower door will not shut. You really have to slam it hard. It is getting annoying and I want to fix it. Im not sure what the issue is as it never used to be this bad. It did used to get a tiny bit stuck but I would just pull a little bit harder and it would close. I moved in here 6 months ago and I reckon without me noticing it really, it got worse.
I can't work out the issue. There is a piece of rubber at the bottom of the shower screen in the corner. Then a piece where the door would usually sit in once shut. The issue is that rubber piece is not going over that frame. It is almost like the rubber has slipped down from the top causing an overbite.
Does anyone know what the issue is and how I fix it please?
Perhaps the rubber has hardened over time and needs to be replaced? Removing a tiny amount of the rubber with scissors or a blade might prevent it from binding up. Could you upload an image of the door partially closed when the rubber binds upon the frame, as that might give us a better idea of what's going on?
Any chance it might be the hinges and the door has slipped from it's grip causing it to tilt and go out of alignment? It sounded like a progressive fault. Can you possibly take a photo of the whole door? It would give us a better idea of its current state. See if you can tilt it back, if you can then it sounds like it needs a bit of tightening.

I took a really good look at it last night. I figured it has something to do with the rubber down the bottom edge which is in my prior photos. It is a bit loose but the one on top is tight as. Taking a partial bit of the rubber off may be the answer. I can get the photo you requested.
When that corner of a door is catching on a bottom rail, it is normally a sign that the door is sagging as per @redracer01's comment. It could be the top hinge is loose, or the frame is coming away from the wall. When you lift the door up and over the rail, check to see where the looseness is coming from.
Removing the black plastic might be a simple bandaid fix.
