Place the end of a tape measure on the lower outside corner of the shutter. Measure 1-3/4 inches toward the window. Mark the measurement with a pencil.
Measure from the mark 1 inch below the edge of the shutter. Mark the location on the wall with a pencil.
Drill a hole in the wall at the mark with a masonry drill bit if mounting to a brick wall. The hole should be the same diameter as the anchor you are using. If you are mounting to wood, use a drill bit for wood that is slightly smaller than the lag bolt you are placing in the wall for the shutter dog.
Tap the masonry anchor into the hole with a hammer, if you are mounting to brick. Insert the anchor bolt through the hole in the center of the shutter dog. Thread the anchor bolt into the anchor. Tighten the bolt with a socket wrench.
Insert the lag bolt through the shutter dog, if mounting to wood. Thread the lag bolt into the hole with the socket wrench until the back of the shutter dog touches the shutter. Slide the C-clip over the back of the shutter dog to secure the dog against the head of either the lag bolt or the masonry anchor bolt heads.
