Shutter-Lock Installation Instructions

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

Step 1:
Place the shutter next to the window and mark desired location against the wall or window.

Step 2:
For smaller sizes use four Shutter-Loks per shutter. For large sizes 55" and over, use six Shutter-Loks per shutter.

Step 3:
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.

Step 4:
With the shutter in location against the wall, drill through the shutter into the walls surface 3 1/4" deep. Make sure you drill holes deep enough so the Shutter-Lok doesn't bottom out.

Step 5:
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.

NOTE:
To remove shutters, do not attempt to pull out the Shutter-Loks. Simply use a pair of snips and slide them behind the shutter to cut the Shutter-Lok off at the shank.
