How do you fix a broken shutter staple? Locate and pull out the damaged staple from the louver with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Then apply some adhesive (like wood glue or epoxy) to coat the legs of a replacement staple. Thread the staple into the loop on the louver and guide its legs into the same staple holes on the tilt rod. For extra shutter staples, call us at 239-208-6577.
