Getting Started

Step 1: Assemble the Frame (see installation instructions for details)

Step 2: Fasten the Frame in two points

Inside Mount

  • 1. Center the assembled frame in the opening, using the Product Labels to ensure the frame is right side up.

    2. Set one of the supplied screws through the pre-drilled hole on the upper left hand frame. Once secured, set one of the supplied screws through the pre-drilled hole on the upper right hand frame.

    3. Be sure to fasten the screws through the frame and into the window jabs

Outside Mount

  • 1. Center the frame on window opening, using the Product Labels to ensure the frame is right side up

    2. Set one of the supplied screws in the top of the left side frame pre-drilled hole.

    3. Place a level on the top frame, and move the right side frame until the frame is level.

    4. Secure the top of the right frame to the wall using a supplied screw, keeping the frame level.

Step 3: Hang Shutter Panels

1. Set the panel(s) in the frame.

2. Insert the hinge pins into the hinges.

3. Confirm that the panels are level/square by using a level. The panels should smoothly seat into the frame.

4. Fasten the remaining screws into the frame.
