I hope someone on this excellent group can help me with this
We have some lawn/deck chairs which have the rubbery slats that are
strectched onto the frame and support the cushions. Many of these have
deteriorated and need to be replaced. Do they sell repair kits for
these things anywhere or is there a company that does repairs? I'd
hate to junk the chairs, which are otherwise in great shape, just
because of this problem.
ps. I'm in the Greater Toronto Area.
Thanks for all replies.
There are basically 2 systems. You can have a hole in one end of each
strap and a plastic pin or there are a couple kinds of clips (round or
Poke around the net and you will find several vendors.
I have 200' of beige strap I will never use, make me an offer.
I've bought from these guys. The material may be available at your local
home store also. You can buy in bulk or you can buy pre-cut slats. They
have to be heated to stretch over the frame. Not a big deal to do.
Every hardware store used to carry rewebbing kits, either the flat 'seat
belt' style or the tubing. But the ultra-cheap cast resin chairs sold
for the last 10-15 years have made low-end multi-piece chairs almost a
thing of the past. Selection jumps right from the <$10 plastic, to the
>$50 cast metal frame things.
I don't know about Toronto
but in Ottawa the local organization for people with
mental handicaps used to maintain an excellent
sheltered workshop for exactly this type of repair.
I do not know what sort of PC name such institutions
nowadays use, but Google may help.
Hello Peter, I was just searching the net to see if I could find some info on
where to get the exact same material as I am having the same issues with my
chairs. The patio set is very nice and in excellent shape so I certainly don't
want to replace it. Have you had any luck locating the material to make these
repairs? If you have please provide me with the details. I am looking for the
rubbery slats in charcoal grey.
