HOW TO INSTALL ALUMINUM STAINLESS STEEL CLIP STRAPS


Tools needed to complete this task:
  • Pot of warm water (just under boiling point)
  • Scissors or garden shears
  • Tape measure
  • Vice-grips
  • Gloves

E-CLIP PROCESS: Attach strap to one side of the frame

5/8" aluminum E-clips are used for this installation. The E-clips can be purchased on our website. The part number for the E-clips is # 30-800 and can be found here.

HOW TO INSTALL ALUMINUM STAINLESS STEEL CLIP STRAPS

Step one: Remove old straps

Using scissors or garden shears, cut off all old straps as well as fasteners. Clean the piece well. If the furniture is in need of structural repair or painting, this is the time to do it. See Pic. 1

Step three: Cut one strap

Cut one strap off your roll of vinyl (Do not cut all the straps at once as you may want to adjust the strap length after seeing how the first strap fits around the frame). See Pic. 3

Step five: Insert E-clip

Insert strap end fully into jaws of E-clip. Using vice-grips, apply heavy clamp pressure to secure strap in jaws of E-clip. A good method is to clamp halfway onto clip from one side, then repeat on the other side. Two bites seem to secure strap better than one single effort. See Pic. 5

Step six: Put straps in warm water

Place straps inside the pot and wait 5 minutes before installing. We recommend wearing gloves to protect your hands; and when you are ready to start, use tongs (optional) to pick up each strap and install. Once the strap is out of the water, you have to install it right away; otherwise, it will cool down and harden. See Pic. 6
