Turn one of those shutters over. Measure up from the base to the point where you would like to install the shutter latch. Plan its place that you can easily access it from the window that is open. Drill pilot holes for the latch and attach it with screws out of its meeting kit. Repeat the pull portion of the latch and the process for the shutter.

By slipping the shutter straps on the 11, hang the shutters. It’s easier if you have help for this measure. Open the dividers.
