How do you fix a damaged shutter staple? To start, remove the damaged staple away from the louver with some of needle-nose pliers. Then dab on some adhesive (like wood glue or epoxy) to coat the legs of a new staple. Thread the staple into the loop on the louver and direct its legs into the previous staple holes on the tilt rod.
