How do you fix a damaged shutter staple? First, pull out the snapped staple out of the louver with a tool like of needle-nose pliers. Then dab on some adhesive (like wood glue or epoxy) to coat the legs of a replacement staple. Thread the staple through the loop on the louver and direct its legs into the previous staple holes on the tilt rod. For new shutter staples, call us at 760-405-8887.
