Tip: Shower door screws

When you have to drill screw holes to install a shower door start by marking the spot with a Magic Marker. Then using an ordinary glass cutter, place the cutter's cutting edge to your pre-marked spot and rotate the cutter with a little inward pressure breaking the glaze on the tile with the cutter until you are all the way through the glaze and have made a place to start drilling. Now a normal drill will work for the holes.
