Rockler Hidden Control Arm Jig Kit for Shutter System

Rear-mounted control arms lend a clean, modern look to your wooden shutters, and this jig makes it easy to drill the necessary holes without splitting. The kit includes a jig and a self-centering drill bit. Just slip the jig over the end of the louver, and use the bit to drill a perfectly placed pilot hole to accept a nail for the control arm. Works in tandem with the Rockler Shutter System Templates. Drilling Jig for Hidden Shutter Control Arm features an extruded aluminum fence and a thick, laser-cut acrylic template. Self-centering drill bit ensures precise hole location, which is critical for even spacing of your louvers.

Does the job and saves time.
I’ve used this jig for 10 shutter panels, and just finished drilling holes for 4 more. I made a clamping jig just for this jig and the pivot hole jig. Great time saver. I’m still using the first drill bit. Using the CD/DVD trick helps me drill the holes straight.

Works as intended
Does exactly what it's supposed to. Already broke the drill bit. Luckily, they supplied two.

Worked out great
This item was great, no problems. Made three shutters that were 72 in tall and only broke one and a spare came with the kit. Awesome set up. Would add pictures if I could but it will not. Oh and order the shutter kit, well worth the money.

I didn't know I needed this jig until I got to that step in making plantation shutters. I sure wish Rockler staff would have pointed this out to me as it has put my project on a two to three week hold as I wait for it to be delivered.

Not on this order. I already have the jigs.

When I purchased the shutter jig, I didn't realize that this jig didn't come with it. Makes sense now.

We've done many fixed shutters but had a customer that wanted movables w/out the "ugly" center bar in his restaurant, you added it just in time.

how do you replace the drill bit when the first one breaks? The whole thing came apart and I cannot get the thing back together.
Dennis S on Jan 24, 2016
Are there replacement drill bits available?
Matt T on Jun 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes, replacement bits are available for $2.99 by calling customer service at 800-376-7856 and requesting item # 55495.
Is there a jig for cutting out the notch in the louver for hidden tilt function?
Clifton B on Jan 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Table saw with blade above table about ⅜ to ½ in. will work, blade close as safely possible to fence. Practice on scrap blade then you can cut multiple blades (louvers) at once
Does this kit help with cutting the notch into the louver for the hidden tilt rod?
Dan B on Aug 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't believe it did. It's been a while sense I used it but I thing I used my miter gauge and the table saw to cut the notch.
