What if I have a disconnected shutter louver? If the louver is disconnected and jutting from the frame, you could have a broken louver pin. To mend this you should take out the pin from both the louver and the stile with a pair of needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the pin is extracted, stick the replacement pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then direct the louver onto the pin. To receive additional louver pins at no cost, just call us at 732-301-6168.
