  1. Position the shutter on the house next to the window. Using a suitable marker, mark the mounting hole locations on the building.
  2. Remove the shutter and, where marked, drill a 1/4” inch diameter hole through the Wood, Vinyl or Aluminum siding only. *Do not drill into the wall*
  3. If the wall is Wood
  • Drill a 1/8” inch diameter hole, 1 3/4” deep into the wall.

If the wall is Masonry or Brick

  • For Masonry or Brick you will need a screw anchor for a #10 screw. The type of anchor purchased will determine the diameter of the hole. Follow the anchor manufacturer’s instructions for installation
  1. Position the shutter on the house next to the window and fasten with the metal screws provided.

*Be careful not to over tighten the metal screws or the shutter may become distorted*
