    Hi Guys
    I’m very happy to have been able to replace the broken spring. The recliner chair is about 30 years old and still in very good condition. It was made in Oz by Smith and Co.
    The Aust. Post was slow, over a week, but not a problem. Its on and working as good as new.

I purchased some items to fix a rip in my sofa. It really is as easy as they say in the videos. I have extended the live of my sofa for just 5 mins of work and a small cost. Great products.

Sofa Rehab

This was probably the most helpful company I have dealt with in a long time. My email was answered immediately. Txt messages followed asking for more info. They asked for pics of where we thought the problem was. They were spot on with what the problem was.
