What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is detached and jutting from the frame, you could have a busted louver pin. To mend 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 damaged pin is removed, insert the replacement pin base into the old hole in the shutter stile, then guide the louver onto the pin.
