What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is disconnected and jutting from the frame, you could have a broken louver pin. To mend this you will want to extract the pin from both the louver and the stile with a set of needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the pin is taken out, stick the undamaged pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then slide the louver onto the pin. To get replacement louver pins at no cost, just call us at 404-962-8517.
