I wasted 3-4 hours trying every way to stretch the new sling fabric on my patio chairs without buying this stretcher. From stretcher clamps, hinged wood, car jack, but the way the sides were not exactly parallel to each other. Everything I tried would just pop off before I got the stretch I needed. I gave in and bought this spreader. It worked perfectly and in 10 minutes, my spreader bars were in place and chair was completed. Should have got this to begin with, but live and learn. Cant wait to do my other 5 chairs now.
I could not have finished installing my new upholstered sling back chairs without the Slingmaster spreader tool.
Worked perfectly! i had been trying for months to reset the spacer bar on my patio sling chair. With this tool, i had the bar reset in a matter of MINUTES!!! I'm so glad I purchased the Spreader Tool
At first I had trouble keeping the tool to stay on the chair. It appeared that the tool was reaching it's limit and began to bow slightly causing the tool to slip off. After several trys, I used a C-Clamp on each side to hold the tool in place and it then worked well.
M husband and I replaced the slings on two swivel chairs, and two ottomans. The ottomans were easy, without the tool, because it was such a short run, and there were no tension bars to deal with. The chairs were another matter! We tried with a car jack, etc and it’s just wasn’t happening. Many hours wasted before we bought this tool, which did the job quick and easy.
Thanks for the tool it makes the stretching process simple ....line the inside of spreaders with soft material for grip and the process is very easy....
If you are going to replace slings on your furniture ... this is a must ... great and made things easier for installation ... It seem to slip off a few times, but was an easy fix with a piece of duck tap ... thanks ..
As soon as you put a great deal of pressure on it, the tool would slip out. If you put the longer part of the bracket in the back so it wouldn't slip out you would risk tearing the fabric. I wound up placing a small piece of wood between the chair and the bracket. This kept it from tearing the fabric and kept in from sliding out. Finally worked but was very difficult.
This tool is absolutely necessary to attach the slings. It worked perfectly. My only suggestion is that C-clamps are also necessary to hold it on the chair rails.
Hi I have a set of Carter Grandle swivel/rock chairs that are about 15 years old. One fell victim to an errant firework and I had to figure that I had gotten my use out of the slings at this point. I ordered the slings.
I cleaned the old chairs and removed the slings. I installed the new slings. So far so good. Then I went to re-install the spreader bars.
My hand strength isn't what it once was so I couldn't get the Quick clamps to spread the rails quite enough. I looked around and saw this spreader.
I called and spoke with an associate (Don?? as I recall). He apologized that he would't be able to ship until the next day (Friday). I said I understood and that it was OK. Today is Saturday and I received the unit. (2 days). It took me about 30 Minutes to re-install the spreaders in 4 chairs!
So, to sum up! Great service great product!
It worked really good.
I tried reslinging my chairs without and bent the side of one chair. Ordered this and it was a breeze. Very handy tool. One suggestions to buy some weather stripping and cut some pieces to put on the angle iron that touches the sling rails...I did that and no scratches as well
