We hired a handyman to assemble this unit but he said he could not do it. So my husband and I took it upon ourselves to do it ourselves. Not an easy task. But if we had to do it again we would have a better idea as to how to go about it. It took us one day. We had to buy some extra tools: Hacksaw blade: Attachment to our drill so as to drill into tile without breaking it: (Worked perfectly. Got some information on how to do it online). We found the directions were a bit skimpy and hard to follow: IMPORTANT TIP: Go online to the company website and download their instructions which are better and give more details. The instruction manual that came with the bathtub door had the measurements in metric? But when you download the manufacturers manual it comes in standard US measurements. Don't know why they don't send this one with the product? We had a problem trying to figure out the side panels and we called the manufacturer - we were AMAZED to get a real person to answer the phone immediately. (Very good customer service). Turns out they put one side panel inside the other which pulls apart - something that doesn't appear to be obvious until you know about it. Apart from that the whole thing worked out fine. Also it turns out you don't have to be totally accurate with your width measurements as it's got some leeway there. My husband put one of the doors up by himself as I was out of the room at the time and he dropped it - some shards of what appeared to be brittle glass were all over the place - it was like they had lined the base of the door with this? However, it did not appear to have any function and the doors work perfectly. We LOVE the look of our bathtub now - very clean lines and the room looks much bigger. Definitely buy this product!

All I can say is.... This was a great deal. Be aware that only one side opens the other is stationary. But that was fine for me, these doors are sleek and modern looking I love having them in my bathroom! they really compliment my granite countertop and modern tub.
