|For use on any surface including: wood,
aluminum, vinyl, stucco, hardboard, brick, or masonry.
Required for Installation:
Electric drill, 1/4" drill bit, hammer, and Shutter-Loks
Place the shutter next to the window and mark desired location against
the wall or window. See Figure 1 at right.
For smaller sizes use four Shutter-Loks per shutter Figure 2A . For large
sizes 55" and over, use six Shutter-Loks per shutter Figure 2B.
To help ensure proper alignment mark or pre-drill holes using a 1/4"
drill bit into the shutter before attaching it to the wall.
With the shutter in location against the wall (figure 1), drill through
the shutter into the wall surface 3 1/4" . Make sure you drill holes
deep enough so the Shutter-Lok doesn't bottom out.
Grasp the Shutter-Lok supporting shank and push it through the shutter
hole and into the wall surface. Tap the Shutter-Lok gently with a hammer
to snug the shutter against the siding. Do not over tighten , or this
will cause the shutter to dimple.
To remove shutters do not attempt to pull out the Shutter-Loks. Simply
use a pair of nips and slide them behind the shutter to cut the Shutter-Lok
off at the shank.
