What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is separated and jutting from the frame, you probably have a damaged louver pin. To fix this you need to remove the pin from both the louver and the stile with some needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the damaged pin is extracted, put the replacement pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then slide the louver onto the pin. To receive replacement louver pins at no cost, just call us at 720-538-0182.
