Unhappy Bathroom Mirror

The mirror that hangs above sink and covers the medicine cabinate needs work. The Al frame is loose{ don't know what holds it together } , and it appears that the best way to fix it is to take it down and take it apart??? Has anyone worked on one?? The hinge doesn't appear to be a piano hinge, just interlocking , like the windows. Any suggestions??

Mine too

Mine also.

Is there an alternative to the "stiff arm"? My stiff arm is loose and will not hold the mirror in the upright position. I can see where the screw have come out but if I replace them, they will surely scratch the mirror from behind. I can see where the original screw have already scratched the mirror.

Any idea?

Unhappy Bath room mirror

Those mirrors are hard to get to. Posslble answer to your loose arm is: hold tension and unscrew at the same time. Rivet arm to piece of Al. and glue back on plywood. That does not solve loose frame. There are rivets in the frame that must hold the mirror together. If removed ,would that open a can of worms?? One solution to whole problem may be to cut a piece of al. the full size of the frame, clamp to frame, mark holes of arm, rivet arm to al.,then glue entire al. to back of plywood and hold with clamps. Clamps that I have found useful are the spring clamps that hold paper together available at Staples. Don't know where to get al.???

Corner brackets

Maybe rather than a whole sheet of aluminum, just some "triangles" at the corners.

My mirror is also loose but tolerable. The idea of aluminum support gave me the idea.

As far as the tension arm, I agree that a piece of aluminum or comparable strength member glued to the back is a great idea.

I will implement your idea soon.

Unhappy Loose Bathroom Mirror

Smily , That could work also. The type of glue is important. Should be waterproof and freezeproof. Still like to know if that mirror comes off. Let me know if it works OK and what glue you use.
