What if I have a disconnected shutter louver? If the louver is disconnected and jutting from the frame, you could have a broken louver pin. To fix this you need to take out the pin from both the louver and the stile with some needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the pin is extracted, put the new pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then direct the louver onto the pin. To get replacement louver pins at no cost, just call us at 713-853-9629.
