Check that the build-out frame (BOF) numbers match the numbers on the shutter frames.
Place the BOF frame against the window and attach an included fastener (usually a screw) to the top corner of the frame.
Attach the last side panel using the same instructions as the first.
Ensure the frame is even with the window and put in another screw at the opposite bottom corner. This screw should be diagonal to the first.
Attach the rest of the screws into the holes provided.
Place plastic plugs into the holes on the BOF and caulk around the sides of the frame, if desired.
Affix the shutter frames to the BOF by the top center pre-drilled holes with the provided screws. Install the leftover screws into the hinge holes.
Attach rubber pieces to each bottom corner of the Bahama shutter frame and close the frame.
Mark the center of the tabs on the build off frame and mark the center of the tabs.
Pierce the center of the tabs with the included drill bit.
Create threads by using a 1/4-20 or a size 7 tap.
Close the shutters and insert a .25-inch (6.35 mm) screw into the tabs and BOF.
Remove the screws in the tabs to install the open rod and push the shutter out.
Place the rod in the tab on the shutter frame and a 3/8-inch (10 mm) hole on the bottom of the BOF. Put the screws back into the BOF.
