What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is disconnected and hanging from the frame, you likely have a damaged louver pin. To repair this you should remove 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, stick the new pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then guide the louver onto the pin. To receive additional louver pins for free, just call us at 405-300-4664.
