What if I have a disconnected shutter louver? If the louver is separated and jutting from the frame, you could have a busted louver pin. To repair this you need to extract the pin from both the louver and the stile with a set of needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the pin is taken out, insert the replacement pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then direct the louver onto the pin.
