What if I have a hanging shutter louver? If the louver is separated and hanging from the frame, you could have a busted louver pin. To mend this you will want to take out the pin from both the louver and the stile with a set of needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once everything is extracted, stick the replacement pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then direct the louver onto the pin. To receive extra louver pins for free, just call us at 513-216-9740.
