HOW TO MEASURE A ONE PIECE SLING

Very Important Please Read

About Custom Slings.

Custom order slings are non-returnable and non-refundable. Once they are made to your measurement they cannot be reused. Please make sure you measure your slings twice before placing your order. Carefully follow our instructions on measuring slings below to ensure your order is correct.

We recommend taking the measurement while the old slings are still on your chair, chaise, loveseat, ottoman, or bar stool. Make sure all the bolts are tight. When measuring round to the closest 1/8”. DO NOT round more than 1/8″ or your slings will be too tight, or too loose.

Please follow the exact measuring instructions. AS&PS will add the necessary allowances on the width for sling rod pockets and seams once we receive your order.

The following pictures will guide your steps in how to measure your slings properly before submitting your order with AS&PS.

Step One: Measuring top width

Most patio sling chairs have a rail on each side of the frame with an opening for the sling to slide into.

Using a flexible cloth or a plastic tape measure, locate were the top bolt is on each sling rail frame and measure from the center of the opening one side of the frame rail to the center of the opening on the other side of the frame rail. As indicated on picture 1A and picture 1B.

It is very important to measure your slings exactly where the top bolts are. If our guidelines are not followed your slings may not fit properly. Remember to measure to the closest 1/8” and do not add or take away from the exact measurements.

Step Two: Measuring bottom width

NEVER use the top width measurement for the bottom width of sling as they could be different. Using a flexible cloth, or a plastic tape measure, measure from the center of the opening one side of the frame rail to the center of the opening on the other side of the frame rail as indicated in pictures 2A and 2B.

Remember to measure to the closest 1/8” and do not add or take away from the exact measurements. We AS&PS will add the necessary adjustments.

Step three: Measuring the length

When measuring the length of the sling use the sling rail as your guide not the sling fabric. Measure from the top of the rail (Picture 3) to the bottom of the rail (Picture 4), following the chairs contour as we show in Picture 5.

Remember to measure to the closest 1/8” and do not add or take away from the exact measurements. We AS&PS will add the necessary adjustments.
