Step 2 – Attach Shutter Panels
Re-attach the shutter
panels to the hanging strips by lining up the hinges and re-inserting the hinge pin.
Step 3 – Adjust Shutter Panels
Your Standard Sized
Plantation Shutters should hang evenly after Step 2, but there may be the need for adjustments.
· For smaller adjustments, you can “stretch” the hinges by opening
the shutter panels, inserting a piece of wire or similar spacer between the hinge flaps, then shutting the panels until the
hinge is stretched slightly. Remove the spacer.
Stretch the hinges only a little at a time. You can also stretch the top
hinges while leaving the bottom hinges untouched, and vise versa.
· For larger adjustments, back out the screw(s) from the hanging strips, reposition
the strips, and then retighten the screw(s).
Step 4 – Install Remaining Hardware and Button Hole Plugs
· Install the magnetic catches.
· Install the button hole plugs over top of the screw holes.
· Your Standard Size Plantation Shutters are now installed!
Step 5 – Adjust Louver Tension (only if needed)
Should the louver tension of your plantation shutters
ever need to be adjusted, you can do so by adjusting the louver tension adjustment screws.
Insert a Philips screwdriver into the access holes
in the sides of the shutter panels. One access hole will be on each side.
Turn the screws 1/10 turn at a time until the desired
tension is reached. Do not over tighten.
Adjust the screws on each side of the shutter panel to keep equal tension between them.
Proper tension is achieved when the louvers tilt freely
and easily but do not move when the tilt bar is released.
