Frame Selection and Louver Clearance

The way parts are packed and shutters labeled on this video may vary somewhat, depending on the particular fabricator that makes the shutter. But the basic information applies to all. All necessary hardware and parts will be provided with the order. Use the labels to match up panels with frame and windows. Vinylbilt Shutter frames assemble effortlessly and installation is stress free. What normally takes two people to build and install can easily be done in minutes by one person with little to no experience. Installing an Inside Mount
We will send you installation instructions for your order, but this video and the one below give a good overview of what is involved. For more information Go Here. Installing an Outside Mount

Where a 4 sided frame is not possible, magnetic catches will be provided.
Reattaching A Tilt BarIf using the free "Clearview" option, the front tilt bar is eliminated for a more open view. The rear Clearview connectors also are easy to snap back in if removed, or to replace if broken. The video below was put together by a Canadian dealer of Eclipse shutters and gives a good illustration of one of the reasons we prefer these shutters: durability. While freight damage can happen when shipping, we have very few issues because these shutters can take getting knocked around much better than a painted wood or composite shutter.
