What if I have a hanging shutter louver? If the louver is detached and jutting from the frame, you likely have a broken louver pin. To repair this you need to extract the pin from both the louver and the stile with a set of needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the damaged pin is withdrawn, stick the undamaged pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then slide the louver onto the pin. To receive additional complementary louver pins, just call us at 408-831-3373.
