So first thing’s first, check if your country is listed as available for shipping method.
Measuring and Installation
To avoid any mistakes first get the measurements right. You don’t want to find out that you’ve drilled holes on the wrong spots after you’ve done it. So get your measuring tool and write down your window’s length, width, and height. Now depending on what type of shutter you got, you will either drill holes next to both sides of a window or on top of it. If you got the one that slides in, make sure that the width of your window’s wooden frame doesn’t exceed the width of the slider. If you get this right, there isn’t anything that can go wrong during the installment. This is important because you shutter won’t be able to fit in properly if you have a smaller slider than your window’s frame.
Placing the Shutter
For the final part you might require some help, so be sure to call a friend or neighbor. Pick up your shutter and carefully slide it in the frame starting from the upper one. It’s easier this way. Otherwise, you would have to pull the upper one to insert the frame. Now that you have one side in place push the shutter toward the upper frame and bend the lower one to make it fit. Now you can slide it left, or right anytime you want.
