What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is disconnected and hanging from the frame, you likely have a damaged louver pin. To mend this you will want to remove 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 Once the damaged pin is withdrawn, put the undamaged pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then direct the louver onto the pin. To receive extra complementary louver pins, just call us at 303-625-6431.
