My shower door used to seal perfectly, I could slam it and it would stay shut. Lately, it has now started flapping around and not sticking. Here's a video. Can anyone put me down the right path to fix this?

It appears the catch has failed. As in something in the mechanism has broken. What that is would determine the course for repair. – bcworkz Feb 3 '14 at 3:53
Does it seal when you don't slam it? – Tester101 Feb 3 '14 at 11:11
It does seal (using a magnetic strip) if I carefully close it – Kirk Ouimet Feb 3 '14 at 15:26
