do not raise shutters!
This was a note posted on the bulletin board in the Hidden Lake Peak fire lookout:
SHUTTERS S.E. shutter was raised by an unknown party in 2006 and was destroyed by improper handling. This shutter was replaced in October 2006 with great expense and volunteered time and effort on volunteer backs. PRIMARY PURPOSE of this structure is historical. Shutters are for this reason, and for protection of the building. So… shutters are not for visitors. (They were not well designed to start with… subsequently built L4 cabins have better designs) DO NOT RAISE SHUTTERS!
This hinge is from the destroyed shutter ↓
