What if I have a disconnected shutter louver? If the louver is detached and hanging from the frame, you likely have a broken louver pin. To repair this you need to extract the pin from both the louver and the stile with a set of needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the pin is removed, insert the undamaged pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then slide the louver onto the pin. To get replacement complementary louver pins, just call us at 888-611-2474.
