How to Align Vertical Louvers
Vertical louvers sometimes fail to close properly because they lose their alignment. Here is a quick guide to realigning your louvers.
- Using the chain, turn your louvers to the closed position. You will note that some louvers, those out of alignment, don't close as snuggly as others.
- When the chain stops, give it a solid tug. Don't panic if it sounds like you are stripping the gears; that are how it's supposed to sound.
- Now pull the chain in the opposite direction and give it another solid tug. Again you should hear the sound of stripping gears.
If you have done this properly, you should now have perfectly aligned louvers that close completely. If not just repeat the process any time you notice a misalignment.
