Place Shutter next to window and mark desired location. Also mark location for Shutter-Loks on shutter. When installing on brick, locate holes for Shutter-Loks over mortar lines.*
For smaller sizes use four Shutter-Loks per shutter. For large sizes 55" (122cm) and over, use six Shutter-Loks per shutter. (See illustrations below).
For easier installation mark or pre-drill holes into shutter before attaching to wall. Use a ¼" (6.3-6.5mm) drill bit.
With shutter in location against wall, insert ¼" (6.3-6.5mm) drill bit through holes in shutter and drill into wall surface 3 ¼" (8.26cm) deep. Note: For brick or masonry use a ¼" carbide drill bit. MAKE SURE YOU DRILL HOLES DEEP ENOUGH-so Shutter-Lok doesn't't bottom out. No anchors are necessary.
Grasp Shutter-Lok supporting shank and push through shutter hole and into wall surface. Note: Shutter-Loks will hold in vinyl siding alone without regard to structural surface although it is necessary to drill hole deep enough to accommodate length.
Tap Shutter-Lok gently to snug shutter against siding. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN, or this will cause the shutter to dimple. Shutter-Loks are designed to hold tight and NOT loosen when installed as directed yet still allow for expansion and contraction.
To remove shutters, do not attempt to pull out Shutter-Loks. Simply use a pair of snips or hacksaw blade to slide behind shutter and cut Shutter-Lok off at shank.
*Note: Shutter-Loks are designed as a decorative addition to shutters when properly installed. The best look is obtained when they are placed in consistent locations on your shutters.
