Vinyl Shutter Installation Instructions
The following instructions are for installing exterior vinyl
shutters on any surface including wood, aluminum, vinyl, stucco,
hardboard, brick, or masonry.
- Electric Drill
- 5/16" drill bit
- Shutter Spikes (included with shutters)
Place the shutter next to the window and mark the desired
location against the wall or window.
To help ensure proper alignment, mark or pre-drill holes
using a 5/16" drill bit into the shutter before attaching
it to the wall.
With the shutter in location against the wall, drill
through the shutter into the walls surface 3 1/4" deep. Make
sure you drill holds deep enough so the shutter spikes don't bottom
Grasp the shutter spike supporting shank and push it
through the shutter hold and into the wall surface. Tap the shutter
spike gently with a hammer to snug the shutter against the siding.
Do not over tighten, or this will cause the shutter
Note: To remove shutters, do not attempt to pull out the shutter
spikes. Simply use a pair of snips and slide them behind the shutter
to cut the shutter spike off at the shank.
