I have aluminum siding and plastic shutters which I just removed and repainted. Now I cannot get them re-hung. There are screws in the siding and slotted brackets on the back of the shutter. I'm finding it impossible to get all six screws in the slots at the same time, before sliding the shutter down to prevent the screw from coming out of the slot. I've even tried removing the brackets, hanging them on the screws, then trying to "bang" the shutter into the bracket to attach it. The siding gives way too much and the brackets are way too tight to get them attached to the shutter. I am totally at my wits' end and frustrated. Is there anyone who has any hints or can tell me the way these types of shutters can be hung? I've spent more time trying to hang one shutter than I spent repainting all 12 of them!! H-E-L-P!
