These nylon shutter pins are utilized when constructing new plantation shutters when using our hidden tilt rod. They support the louvers in the shutter panel, and allow the louver to rotate. The narrow end of the nylon pin is inserted into the louver. The larger end of the nylon pin is inserted into the stile or frame. A washer is molded into the pin which prevents the louver from rubbing the inside of the shutter stile allowing for smooth operation of the louvers. This washer is sized so as to allow the hidden tilt rod to recess itself between the end of the louver and inside of shutter stile.
Note: If you need to get a louver back into an exiting panel you should order the Louver Repair Pin which is spring loaded.
