In partnership with shuttermedic.com, we offer a wide variety of shutter parts and shutter repair parts for your wood
Replacing broken and damaged shutter parts is something the average
person can do, and it does not require any special tools.
Louvers are sometimes referred to as Slats. They are installed horizontally within the panel and can be moved to control light and privacy. Nylon pins or wood dowels are found at each end of the louvers. These pins keep the louvers within the panel and allow them to rotate. Broken or damaged louvers are easily replaced with our Louver Replacement Kit. When mishandled, sometimes the louver pins can break. When this occurs, re-attaching the louver is accomplished using our special spring loaded louver repair pin.
This shutter part can be found in the center of the panel and is attached to all the louvers. Moving the tilt rod up and down will move all the louvers at the same time. Replacing this shutter part, when damaged, is easily accomplished with our Tilt Rod replacement kit.
As far as shutter parts go, this is the most common item that requires
attention. Shutter staples come in basically two different widths
(3/16", 1/4"), and four different lengths (
1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 7/8"). Easy to follow
instructions will guide you in the simple task of replacing them.
If you just need just a few items this is the most economical
way to purchase them. Each kit contains an assortment of different size staples,
nylon pins, repair pins, tension washers, panel screws, and shutter
Replacing old unsightly hinges can greatly improve the appearance of your plantation shutters. They now come in a wide variety of finishes such as white, brass, nickel, brush nickel, pewter, oil rubbed bronze, just to name a few. Replacing these shutter parts is very easy. All hinge orders come with a full compliment of finished screws for installation.
These are the pins that can be found at each end of a louver. They hold
the louver in place, and allow it to rotate within the panel. Nylon pins are
used during the
construction of the shutter. If a pin was to break, re-installing
a louver back into a panel would require a special spring loaded repair
pin. See below.
This shutter part allows you to re-install a louver back into into a finished panel.
When a panel is constructed, it is glued together at the corners making
it impossible to take a apart. Getting a louver back into a panel
requires this special repair pin which is spring loaded. Depress the pin back into itself so it is flush with the
inside of the frame. Pass the louver over the pin until it finds
the hole at the end of the louver. When this occurs the pin will
pop into the hole and secure the louver.
These shutter parts perform the important function of keeping your
shutter panels closed. The shutter magnet is attached to the
window sill or shutter frame with two screws. The strike plate is
attached to the shutter panel with one screw. When replacing shutter
magnets simply use the existing screw holes in the window sill and panel
from your old magnet and strike plate.
This shutter part also keeps your shutter panels closed. Unlike the magnets
listed above, these shutter parts use a button-clasp connection. The
button is attached to the shutter panel. The clasp is attached to
the window sill or shutter frame. When the button is pushed into
the clasp, the clasp spreads and clips on to the button, thus securing
the panels. Catches are a preferred type of closing device for shutter
panels mounted on French Doors because they are a bit more secure.
Shutter knobs are mostly decorative in nature on interior wood shutters. Functionality comes into play when shutter knobs contain a hook. Shutter panels can be kept closed by using this hook which pivots at the base of one knob, and is attached to the opposite knob.
