If possible take a few digital pictures of your chair before the removing process. You will see that will be very helpful when installing the straps.

It’s a very simple process. Using a pair of scissors or a utility knife cut off all the old straps and remove the fasteners..

HOW TO INSTALL SINGLE WRAP STRAPS

While the strap is still hot attach the rivet to the hole on one side of the frame (picture 2). If necessary, use a rubber mallet to tap in the pin. Wrap the strap around the frame (Picture 3). Using one hand to hold the chair, grab the end of the strap (Picture 4) and stretch it over the top of the other frame and push the pin into hole (Picture 5).
