What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is detached and drooping from the frame, you could have a broken louver pin. To fix this you should take out the pin from both the louver and the stile with a pair of needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the pin is withdrawn, put the replacement pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then direct the louver onto the pin. To receive replacement louver pins for free, just call us at 781-352-2205.
