How To Install Vinyl Strap with a Rectangular Slot

My vinyl strap is installed in a rectangular slot. If your vinyl strapping on your outdoor furniture is installed into a rectangular slot and the end of the vinyl is somewhat pointed (or perhaps is shaped like an arrowhead), then you should follow our Slotted Conversion Vinyl Strap Installation instructions. Chair Care Patio Outdoor Furniture Repair recommends drilling a hole in the slot and using a rivet to repair and install your new vinyl strapping. Cutting the vinyl and trying to install it using the original slot is very time consuming and may not always be adequate.

How To Install Vinyl Wrap Using Steel Clips

My vinyl strap is installed using a steel clip on the end of the vinyl and not a rivet. Some older models of outdoor patio furniture from the 1960s and 1970s used a vinyl strap with a steel clip to hold the vinyl in place. The steel clip has a square opening that slips over the metal frame of the patio chair. The steel clip also has a tab or finger that was bent forward. The hole at the end of the vinyl strap hooks over this tab when installed on the patio chair frame. Click on the link above to find comprehensive vinyl strap installation instructions for furniture that uses a steel tab clip to fasten the vinyl strap to the patio chair frame.

How To Measure Vinyl Strapping

Click on the link above and find the correct formula and calculation to use when cutting the replacement vinyl straps for your patio chairs and chaises. You will find easy-to-use formulas for both single-wrap vinyl strap installation and double-wrap vinyl strap installation.
