Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has just expanded its do-it-yourself Shutter System to include a hidden control arm option. The Hidden Control Arm Jig Kit is designed to construct shutters with the control arm (which is used to open and close the shutters) located on the back side of the shutter panel so it is hidden from view. The result is clean looking shutters with a discreet adjustment mechanism.

"The Hidden Control Arm Jig Kit accomplishes exactly what its name suggests," said Steve Krohmer, Rockler's Vice President of Product Development. "It provides an easy, time-saving method to make clean, modern looking shutters that employ a hidden control arm to open and close."

The Hidden Control Arm Jig Kit contains an acrylic template with an extruded aluminum guide fence and built-in guide holes to indicate the positions to be drilled on the louver. The appropriate self-centering drill bit used to drill the holes as well as detailed instructions are also included in the kit. The control arm is then attached to the shutter louvers with Stainless Steel Nails (45400, sold separately) to complete the hidden control arm assembly.

The Hidden Control Arm Jig Kit (45143) retails for $25.99. It is used in conjunction with the Hidden Control Arm (21/2", 49991 or 31/2", 44880) and either the 31/2" Louver Template Set (47674) or the 21/2" Louver Template Set (44342), all sold separately and required to build shutters. Detailed instructions are included with Louver Template Sets. All can be purchased at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler independent resellers, Rockler.com, or from the Rockler catalog.
