When starting the shutter installation services, position the shutter first, with the top being flush with the top edge of the window drip. Be sure to leave a 1/4-inch gap between the window trimming and the shutter since the window will expand and contract.

After marking the outside corner with a pencil, lay the shutter flat on a work surface suitable for drilling and mark the four mounting hole locations, with one in each corner. Then, use a multipurpose ΒΌ-inch bit to pre-drill the holes.

Now, use a multipurpose 1/4-inch bit to pre-drill the holes. Then, reposition the shutter on the wall and, using the mounting holes, drill pilot holes using the appropriate-sized bit. All the while, you’ll want to bore into the wall surface to a depth of 3 and 1/4 of an inch. Finally, drill the plot holes gently to fit the shutter locks in place, step back, and look at your magnificent work.
