What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is separated and hanging from the frame, you likely have a damaged louver pin. To repair 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 taken out, stick the replacement pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then guide the louver onto the pin. To receive additional louver pins at no cost, just call us at 801-515-3598.
