Shutter hinges on a door and hang it is something of an art, even among carpenters. Doors can be foul, hinges can tie, and all kinds of small things can cause big problems. If you install new hinges on an existing door or specially install a new one, the first rule is to carefully check the door opening fit in the opening before sinking the last screws in the hinges so that you will not notice at the end as it will not be close.

The shutter hinges must be laid down in the wood by the door so that the surface of the plate is in height with the surface of the door. To do this, cut out a layer of the rear edge of the door in the shape of the plate. Stand your door on its front edge, and put your two (or three) hinge plates on the back edge where they should go. Draw around each with a pencil. Use a razor knife to cut around the line about 1/8 inches deep (about the thickness of the plate). Use a hammer and chisel to dig the area at that depth.
The shutter hinges are attached to the door with hinge screws. Drill holes for them by tapping your hinges into areas you cut and mark the screw holes in the plates. When drilling the pilot hole, use a screwdriver bit to secure the bracket to the edge of the door. Make sure the hinged casing is over the edge of the door which will face in the direction that the door will turn. Repeat the process for each of the other hinges.traditional shutter hardware, how to install shutter dogs
