Recomended Steps to Hang Shutters
- Attach the hinges to the shutters first. Measure one inch up from the bottom of the shutter and place the “L” Hinge. Make sure the hinge is flush with the side of the shutter. Using the hinge mounting screws, fasten the bottom hinge to the face of the shutter. Please Note: When mounting the hinge on the face of the shutter, mount the hinges on the side that will be hidden when the shutters are in the open position.
- Mounting the center hinge is critical. Make sure the center screw is centered on the shutter.
- If possible, place piece of a louver on the windowsill. Center the shutters over the opening. Have someone hold the shutters in place. Take the pintle and slide the pintle shaft into the hinge opening then install the 3 pintle screws.
