How to Install Outside Mounted Shutters
Before You Start
You will need the following:
Assemble the Frame
Identify which shutter is to be installed in which window.
On a clean, flat surface layout your frame pieces. You may want to put down a sheet or towel so the shutter does not get scratched.
The frame pieces will be labeled L,R,T,B. Arrange these with the front side facing down.
Use the Hoffman keys provided to join the frame pieces together but gently tapping with a hammer until the end of the Hoffman key is flush.
If you have any T-Posts you will need to align then at this time as well and screw into place.
Install the Frame
Fit the frame onto the window architraves or wall. Use spirit level to make sure the frame is level. Also a second pair of hands will; help with holding the frame in place until you screw it in.
Important note: Take the extra time to make sure the frame is level so you the panels will install easily.
Fasten the Frame
Screw the frame into place using 50mm length screws, the holes will be pre-drilled. You will need to source the appropriate screws from a hardware store according to the material you are screwing into.
