What if I have a disconnected shutter louver? If the louver is detached and jutting from the frame, you probably have a busted louver pin. To repair this you need 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 Once everything is withdrawn, put the new pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then guide the louver onto the pin. To acquire extra louver pins for free, just call us at 919-887-9198.
