Rear Mount Tilt Rod Shutters In Houston to Give a Better View On the back of each louver is the rear mount tilt rod which is a thin metal strip that lets you control the motion of your plantation shutters. Using a tilt rod is an easy and practical way to get the look of a hidden tilt rod in Houston without the cost of an internally enclosed gear mechanism. Hardly seen from the front, the rear-mount tilt bar lets you be in charge of the view. You just move one louver to the desired angle, and the other louvers move in unison. With the tilt rod mounted on the back of the louvers, your plantation shutters give your room a trendy feel. And, similar to a front mount tilt bar, wiping your shutters is simple when there isn’t a tilt rod in front.Our favorite feature of a hidden tilt rod is that it accentuates the design of your shutters.
