How do you fix a damaged shutter staple? Locate and pull out the broken staple out of the louver with some of needle-nose pliers. Then dab on some adhesive (like wood glue or epoxy) to cover the legs of a new staple. Thread the staple into the loop on the louver and guide its legs into the existing staple holes on the tilt rod.
