What if I have a disconnected shutter louver? If the louver is separated and hanging from the frame, you could have a busted louver pin. To mend this you should 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 extracted, insert the replacement pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then guide the louver onto the pin. To acquire replacement complementary louver pins, just call us at 210-876-0377.
