How to glue shower magnetic seal to glass door?

My 2015 Eagle HT 28.5 has the curved glass shower doors. Both doors have a plastic strip on the closure edge that make a magnetic seal when the two doors close together.

The plastic strips have become loose, so they stick together and pull off of the glass. Can anyone recommend an adhesive for holding the plastic edge on the glass door?

I have the same problem, really don't want to use permanent glue, may need to replace one day.
Hope someone has a fix?

Try 3M auto trim tape, be sure to clean both sides good with rubbing alcohol.

Would you apply it to just one side of the glass? I am thinking this would allow me to more easily slide the plastic channel over the edge of the glass panel.

Same problem here.....
But that's the easy part of it all.
The dang surround rollers jump the track EVERY time.....go over a bump in the road and out they come....flopping around on the rubber door latch with the door seals and the edge seals laying on the floor.

I am going to just yank out those two rolling doors and hang a shower curtain over the opening.

I will use heavy, nylon coated stainless fishing wire leader....run that leader through a 36" shower curtain that has stainless reinforced grommets....then crimp.

In that case I would use clear silicone. Didn't realize you had to slide it.

I would suggest clean surface... then use 100% silicon bead ( very thin) and then sit the magnet into the silicon. ( clean off any excess and allow good dry time)

Very strong but could still be removed and cleaned if needed to replace magnates.

Hope it all works well

Silicone

We used silicone on ours and it works like a charm

I also had the same problem so I just cleaned all surfaces and used silicone adhesive to fix it. Have had no problems since.

Hi, this also happened to my 23MRB, curved shower. I also used clear silicone and it worked perfectly. In addition, clear silicone is my "fastener" of choice where possible. Since there is so much vibration, the silicone not only is strong, it is flexible. Tried using Elmers glue on some shelves, didn't work. Silicone has worked for me every time.
