Right! I looked closer, and theres a crimped channel that holds a "bead" of the fabric. man, howd they do that?? Howe can one open the channel, beats me, without cracking that "white metal", if its white metal.I must just be forced into a channel along there, 12 years of rust and dirt, might need to have some Wheaties and try pulling harder...
Too much, Bob!! There IS hope! I take it youve done this before??The fabric has a pocket sewn in at each side that has a plastic cord that runs the length of the sling. To remove you need to cut sling down the middle then remove plastic endcap from bottom of sling rail, next bend sling backwards at the slot to break it free. Using a pair of channel locks grab bottom of sling and pull out. If you decide to do the project I will tell you how to install new one.
Yup, sure is clear now, Bob!! Im running outside to do that right now!!!!! Thanks, man!Cut it down the center with a utility knife then where the sling is in the rail bend the fabric toward the arm on the same side just to break the bond formed over the years. Put the chair on a table and grab the fabric at the bottom next to where you removed end cap with channel locks and pull it downward out the end of the rail. Hope this is clear enough for you.
HUH?? Dont tell me- Bob is back!!!! Hey Bob, I asked my buddy for his sawzall, but I havnt cut them up yet!!! Now, any advice you have on this? A preferred website where I can buy at reasonable rates some fabric? Cuz so far, theyre all schiesters.Sorry to leave you hanging but its deer season here in pa and I was away at hunting camp for a week.
