Original forum that this was posted to.

repair plantation vinyl shutter tilt bar breaking off







I purchased a home that has plantation shutters on EVERY window. Some of the plastic pins that connect the tilt rod to the louvers have broken. The plastic pins are a "T" shape and I haven't been able to find them anywhere. They don't match the Hunter Douglas "T" shaped pins and they are not listed on the blindparts.com website. Has anyone seen these before? Can anyone give me information like, manufacturer or where to find parts. Any nudge in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.

This is a broken one:

This is a working one:

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Diarobbins, your links did not work.

Sincethe original thread is old I will close it. The original OP has not responded.

Here again is the original thread you posted to since I am moving this to its own.

I just opened a thread with what I hope are working picture links and a thread title that better fits my issue. Can you link the other thread to that one and close this one? I don't know how to do it.

Sorry for being such a royal pain.

diarobbins, are we alright now? I did the best I could moving and fixing everything.

It should look somewhat seamless now.
