What if I have a hanging shutter louver? If the louver is disconnected and hanging from the frame, you likely have a broken louver pin. To fix this you will want to 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 removed, stick the replacement pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then direct the louver onto the pin.
