What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is separated and hanging from the frame, you could have a busted louver pin. To fix 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 the pin is taken out, stick the undamaged pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then direct the louver onto the pin. To receive extra louver pins at no cost, just call us at 239-208-6577.
