What if I have a disconnected shutter louver? If the louver is disconnected and jutting from the frame, you probably have a busted louver pin. To mend this you need to remove the pin from both the louver and the stile with some needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the damaged pin is removed, stick the new pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then guide the louver onto the pin.
