What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is disconnected and drooping from the frame, you could have a broken louver pin. To repair this you should 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 replacement pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then guide the louver onto the pin. To get additional louver pins at no cost, just call us at 215-874-4897.
