What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is separated and jutting from the frame, you probably have a broken louver pin. To mend this you should extract the pin from both the louver and the stile with a pair of needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the damaged pin is withdrawn, insert the new pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then direct the louver onto the pin. To receive additional louver pins at no cost, just call us at 916-250-0758.
