What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is separated and hanging from the frame, you could have a broken 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 damaged pin is removed, stick the new pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then slide the louver onto the pin. To acquire additional complementary louver pins, just call us at 847-250-6544.
