How do you fix a damaged shutter staple? To start, clear away the broken staple away from the louver with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Then dab on some adhesive (like wood glue or epoxy) to cover the legs of a replacement staple. Thread the staple into the loop on the louver and guide its legs into the same staple holes on the tilt rod. For extra shutter staples, call us at 405-300-4664.
