What if I have a disconnected shutter louver? If the louver is separated and hanging from the frame, you could have a broken louver pin. To repair this you need to take out the pin from both the louver and the stile with a set of needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once everything is extracted, stick the replacement pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then slide the louver onto the pin.
