Patented Mid-America Shutter-Loks are mounting hardware designed for a quick vinyl shutter installation. They are color-coordinated to match Mid-America exterior vinyl shutters. Shutter-Loks make installing your exterior shutters a snap!
There are 12 pieces in a bag - enough for 1 pair of exterior vinyl shutters. These fasteners will give you better results when you know that metal screws will not hold, and they do not require any anchors. Shutter-Loks will work even when you don't have any studs to attach your exterior vinyl shutters to, and they will hold in virtually any material, including:
- Fiber Cement
- Faux Stone
- Natural Stone
Simply drill a 1/4" hole through the vinyl shutter into the side of the building, tap in the Shutter-Lok with a hammer, and you are done!
Exterior shutters that are 55" and greater in height require 12 Shutter-Loks per shutter pair. For vinyl shutters that are less than 55", Mid-America recommends using 8 Shutter-Loks per pair.
Mid-America Shutter-Loks are available in 16 molded-through permanent colors and one paintable type of vinyl - a perfect match any of the colors of Mid-America exterior vinyl shutters.

Frequently Asked Questions
- How do I remove the Shutter-Loks from the vinyl shutters once they are in place?
Slide a chisel behind the shutter until it comes in contact with the Shutter-Lok. Make sure to keep the sharp edge of the chisel away from the wall. Give the chisel a sharp tap with a hammer and it will cut through the Shutter-Lok. After the shutter is removed, shear the remaining part of the Shutter-Lok flush with the surface and bore out the shank with a drill. Fill the hole with silicone to weatherproof. See our Vinyl Shutter Removal Instructions for additional information.
- My exterior wall is uneven. How do I install my exterior vinyl shutters?
You can use ferrules (a short cylindrical pipe) as standoffs to keep your vinyl shutters stable. Simply paint them, trim to size, and mount them behind your exterior shutters. Do not to put wood blocks behind the vinyl exterior shutters because they will rot fairly quickly.
