Tools Required

Essential tools include:

  • Pair of Pliers or crimpers
  • Snips or cutters

Pro Tip! – Take a photograph of the job/repair area before you start incase you need to refer back to the picture later on.

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Measure the seat width from the first spring across to the last spring allowing 2″ extra at each end to allow the wire ends to be curled round.
  2. Cut the wire to size using wire snips or pliers.
  3. Lay the wire across the seat springs on the NON sitting side of the springs for general upholstery seating but for all other applications it is best to follow the previous installation.
  4. Slide a replacement metal stay spring clip over the spring rung/edge and the paper coated wire so both are within the one clip.
  5. Secure the metal clips in to place using either the pliers or similar crimpers.
  6. Once all springs are attached to the wire curl the excess of wire around on itself and trim any excess.
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 if a second or third row is required.

I've worked in a furniture store for 9 or so years and finding suitable recliner cables was always a challenge. When I recieved my cables off you guys, I couldn't believe how well they fitted. Absolutely magnificent place to get your cables. They were here in a couple of days as well so highly recommended.

Sofa Rehab

My recliner chair handle snapped and I couldn't use the footrest anymore so Googled for a new handle and this company came up, had the exact part needed and it arrived in due time, fitted perfectly and now I wish I'd ordered two! Will fix the other one another time.

Sofa Rehab

I could not be happier! I thought that my couch was beyond saving but now it looks great. So easy to use, I wish I had done it much sooner.

Sofa Rehab

Fixed my couch!! Quoted $1000 to fix this. $200 later from Sofa Rehab and fixed it myself. The couch had tears and the leather was also quite worn on one of the seats. With their video instructions it ended up being easier than expected. The colour matched perfectly.

Sofa Rehab

Perfect Match! I highly recommend Sofa Rehab. They are very efficient and very fast delivery to the us.
