What if I have a disconnected shutter louver? If the louver is disconnected and hanging from the frame, you probably have a damaged louver pin. To mend this you should 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 Once the pin is withdrawn, stick the undamaged pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then guide the louver onto the pin.
