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.
