Vinyl Shutter Installation Instructions

Printable Version

The following instructions are for installing exterior vinyl shutters on any surface including wood, aluminum, vinyl, stucco, hardboard, brick, or masonry.

Required Tools:
- Electric Drill
- 5/16" drill bit
- Hammer
- Shutter Spikes (included with shutters)

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

Step 2:
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.

Step 3:
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 out.

Step 4:
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 to dimple.

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.
