Exterior Shutter Hardware – Shutter Dogs
Exterior shutter hardware is essential to the proper operation of functional exterior shutters. While hinges enable the shutters to swing open and closed, shutter dogs keep the open shutter in place. Shutter dogs come in many different shapes and sizes. The most popular of shape is the s-pattern (shown in the picture).

The best way to keep interior window shutters in a closed position is with magnets. The magnet is a 1.5″ – 2″ unit encased in a plastic shell, which is available in white or brown to blend with painted shutters or stained shutters. On either side of the magnetic unit are slotted screw holes which allow easy alignment.

Italian Exterior Shutters
On a recent trip, I snapped this photo on the town square in Sacile, Italy. The use of exterior shutters throughout Italy is magnificent. This particular picture shows wood board-and-batten shutters in all stages of rotation. We can see that when the shutters are completely open there is complete visibility and no obstruction to the window.

A mortise is a rectangular cavity cut into the side of a shutter to accommodate a hinge. The hinge can be either a hanging hinge or an interpanel hinge on custom shutters. The mortise for a hanging hinge reduces the gap between the window jamb and the shutter panel. The best type of mortise is deep enough for both leafs of the hinge, so the window jamb does not need to be mortised.

Interpanel Hinges – Follow-Up
Here is another example of an improperly installed interpanel hinge. These appear to be fairly nice quality wood stained traditional shutters which have been ruined by poor installation. Notice also the light gap between the shutter panels. This indicates the shutter panels are not rabbeted. This is soooo bad!
