Contact the manufacturer for the steps of procedure to reattach the handle.

Rafael,

Maybe the glue used to hold rearview mirrors on windshields. Most auto stores stock it.

Clear silicone sealer.

I used it to reattach my rear view mirror after the correct stuff failed twice. After the car was totaled, I saved the windshield since it wasn't broken. About 6 months later a buddy needed the glue on "puck" for his car so I grabbed the mirror and yanked it off. I got the mirror, the "puck", the sealer and a thin layer of the windshield I had been saving.

this may sound odd, but it works. go the the auto part store and buy some "rear view mirror" glue. it comes in a tube and is a 2 part liquid/gel epoxy made for gluing the metal pad of a rear view mirror (your handle) to a windshield (your shower glass door). use some painters/masking tape to hold it up over night and you should be all set. good luck. I know it's been said and i used to work in the buiz so i can tell you, if you get the 2 part epoxy type (usuasly about $2 more) it will not fail. icon_cool.gif icon_wink.gif
