Repair Kit For Worn-Out Truck Seats
If you've got an old truck with springs that are poking through the bench-type seat, you'll be interested in this repair kit from Long Motor Corporation. It consists of a large sheet of foam, reinforcing material, steel rods, a pair of hog ring pliers and a set of hog rings.
"Just pull the seat cover up, tie down the springs, put the reinforcing fabric over the springs, with the foam over that, and recover. The substrate is very close-napped carpet material. The reinforcing fabric keeps springs from popping up through the seat foam," says Jeff Pembleton, of Long Motor.
You use the steel rods and hog rings to repair weak or broken springs. You place a rod across the problem spring to create a bridge that spreads the load to other stronger springs. Use the hog rings to attach the rod to the springs.
Rods can also be used to reinforce a weak or broken seat frame perimeter. Bend the rod to follow the frame and attach with hog rings.
The hog rings can be used to reattach upholstery, too.
