What if I have a disconnected shutter louver? If the louver is disconnected and hanging from the frame, you probably have a busted louver pin. To mend this you need to extract the pin from both the louver and the stile with a pair of needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the pin is removed, stick the replacement pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then guide the louver onto the pin. To acquire extra louver pins for free, just call us at 904-289-1663.
