Shutter-Lok vinyl Shutter Fasteners are sometimes called Shutter Nails, Shutter Spikes, Vinyl Spikes, Plastic Nails, Shutter Plug, Vinyl Plugs, Vinyl Nails but Mid-America calls them "Shutter-Lok Fasteners which is a Mid-America Components brand name for their vinyl screws. Of course these vinyl fasteners can be used to install any brand of shutters, if we don't have the color you are looking for you can order them as "Paintable 030" and then paint them any color you choose. They also perfectly match Builders Edge vinyl shutters because they are exactly the same as Mid America shutters and are built in the same factory and use the same color names and color numbers. Builders Edge is a brand name just like Mid-America Components and the only difference is Builders Edge is usually sold in the big box stores like Home Depot and Mid-america is the brand name used by the independent retail outlets like Larson Shutter Company.
I searched local stores and the Internet for shutter fasteners, as I was removing, cleaning and painting the shutters that had become stained/discolored. In my search, I found Larson had the color and quantity I needed and at a very competitive price. What I also saw as a benefit was the availability of using PayPal to help protect me. I ordered several bags of fasteners in the color I desired and they promptly arrived in short order. They worked flawlessly and I highly recommend this company.

These were much more substantial for holding the shutter in place than the old spikes, which probably dated from 1976 and had given way to heavy balsts of wind.
Great price, fast shipping

I was pretty amazed at the prices for shutter hardware at the box stores, especially "box" depot.com but Larson was 3/5 the price, and added only a reasonable shipping charge. Received in two days - very satisfied.
