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.

Louver/ Slat Repair Pinsshutter parts repair pin

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.

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.
