Fasteners are small and should be relatively hidden at distance. I Probably will add a drop of glue in the shutter and control arm to make sure they stay in place.

work well for moveable shutters
steve a on Feb 8, 2017
This was a little hard at first until I learned the best way for me was to drill 1/32 hole in slat. drill 3/8 to 1/2 deep. Vice grip makes a needle nose locking pliers to clamp onto the flat part of the control arm fastener.they won't slip when you press in the fastener. when it is deep enough I turn it 90 degrees and it will not come out.Ive done many this way never a problem at all.

Rhonda R on Oct 1, 2015
I am going to be making some shutters for a couple of our rooms. I settled on a design that needed some kind of hardware that would connect the shutter blades to the control arm. Rockler was the only outlet where I could find the hardware that would do the job.
Loren D on Aug 7, 2015
Needed to repair existing shutters purchase at retail store a few years ago because the control rod got knocked away from the vanes, pulling out the connecting staples. These are different (triangular rather than rounded) but did the job. Followed advice in an earlier review that suggested putting wood glue in the predrilled hole, insterting the fasteners and then following up with more glue. So far, so good!

What size drill bit is required for this item please?
Joanne on Aug 28, 2017
Why aren't there any directions or instructions about how these are installed?
William F on Apr 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Cant answer that but I personally watched several you tube videos before I started.. front steps media has the best one in my opinion. at about 10 minutes in he discusses these. I have done one whole floor of our house now and I have used these.. Also reading everyones reviews helped.. Someone mentioned dipping the end in glue before inserting... great idea!
What size bit is 46147?
