Now you can purchase the control arms for your louvered shutters in pre-milled stock-just cut it to the length you need, and round off the cut corners to your liking. These shutter control arms are milled from straight-grained basswood stock, with a bullnose along the long edge. Combine with our White Basswood Lumber for a uniform look when constructing your custom shutters.

Do these come with the staple holes pre-drilled?
tj S on Feb 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, you will have to drill any holes necessary , cut to length, and round over the end that sits in the mouse pocket (assuming that is the look you’re going for). The round over is easy with some sand paper.
how do you attach the control arm to the shutters? Mine has staples
Don C on Mar 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Small holes are drilled in the edge of the shutter slat and in the control arm. Small metal U-shaped pieces are inserted in the holes, one in the slat and one in the arm. The 2 metal pieces are interlocked. If you saw a picture you would recognize how. Think of two U-shaped pieces interlocked with each other and their open ends facing away from each other. Needle nose pliers are the best tool to install them.
Why can't I find #47674 jig to order?

BEST ANSWER: search on shutters. Find the 3/12 Louvered shutters. If you view options from there it will show up in the list. Here's the link. http://www.rockler.com/3-1-2-movable-louver-w-hidden-control-arm-shutter-jig-and-hardware
