Hello,

I have recently moved into a property where there is a curved bath with curved bath screen. The top plastic hinge that keeps the screen in place is broken, and is not being produced by the manufacturer anymore. We are able to keep the screen up by placing it over the bottom hinge and resting it on the bathtub (the curved bit). It is quite stable in this way, although it obviously can't be opened/closed. However we have a little one on the way and I am concerned that it is quite unsafe. An accidental bump on the screen could make it fall, and as you can imagine it is very heavy.
Is there any way we could fix it to the wall permanently? We are not bothered about it being able to open and close, so we were thinking we could place long screws along the length of the round bit that holds the screen in place (sorry, don't know what it's called!) that would go through it and into the wall. Does this sound ok? Any suggestions very welcomed!

Thanks, unfortunately they've replied that they are unable to provide a suitable part. :(

Sadly no simple fix. Replacement is your best option.
