What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is separated and hanging from the frame, you probably have a busted louver pin. To repair this you will want to extract the pin from both the louver and the stile with some needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the damaged pin is extracted, insert the undamaged pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then guide the louver onto the pin. To get extra louver pins at no cost, just call us at 980-292-3933.
