  1. Necessary tool Review by Jon DIY guy

    I agree with those who say this tool makes reslinging POSSIBLE, as it really isn't possible without it. Two strong guys with very strong hands working together couldn't manage it without the tool. I imagine that depends on the chair you're reslinging. Ours are Carter Grandle Bella Rose High back.

  2. Top Shelf! Review by Gumpy

    I wish someone had suggested I get this tool when we ordered the slings. Anyone ordering Tropitone slings should get this tool. It takes so much of the stress and hassle out of the installation process. (Posted on 12/16/2017)

  4. DO YOURSELF A BIG FAVOR!!! Review by SB

    I had 6 chairs to do. Tried one before renting this tool. I cannot recommend this enough. It would have been practically impossible without it.

  5. It does the job! Review by Chuck

    It’s is great tool. The only possible improvement would be an attached cushion to avoid scratching the chair frame. I used a thin piece of wood attached with double sided tape. (Posted on 11/1/2017)

  6. Easier than I thought Review by Marsha

    I didn't think I would need the tool, but I did. It was easier to use than I anticipated. You do need to have a ratchet set, though. (Posted on 10/24/2017)

  9. DIDN'T NEED IT Review by TJ

  14. Don't even think about not renting this tool! Review by John

    Don't waste your time and effort trying to figure out a work-around to get the sling spreader bars back in place. This tool makes it effortless. Once I had the tool it took less than 5 minutes per chair. Absolutely indispensable. (Posted on 8/23/2017)

  15. Terrific Product Review by Steve-J

    The stretcher made an impossible job possible. The rental price was very reasonable and my shipping costs were just $10 each way. Credit for my deposit was fast.

    So glad I rented this tool. The job could have not been completed without it. (Posted on 8/15/2017)

  17. Works well. Review by Tom

    The tool could be improved by having a small lip at the bottom to keep the tool from slipping. Otherwise it is good and strong. (Posted on 7/13/2017)

  18. Only tool that allowed spreader bars to be put back. Review by Bill

    Got my 5 chairs repaired in a couple of hrs after getting the hang. Takes 2 people. (Posted on 7/11/2017)

  19. Glad I rented the tool Review by AlanI

    I was installing new slings on 4 high-back chairs. I didn't really think I would need the tool but decided to rent it anyway. As it turned out I'm very happy I rented it. The hardest part of the job was running the new slings through the grooves in the chair (especially where the seat curves from the back of the chair to the seat). Once this struggle was completed, the tool made it very easy to replace the tension bars. (Posted on 6/30/2017)

  23. ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Review by Island Style Ingenuity

    This tool turned a 12-hr job into a 1 1/2 hr job! No joke! With eight chaise lounges to refab, we would have been there all day. For just $100, we can find so many uses for this tool, we decided to keep it! Thanks for making a tool that isn't just a one-time use item. (Posted on 6/2/2017)

  27. Tool Review by Mimi

    The tool worked great. (Posted on 6/20/2016)

  28. Sling tool size Review by Adams

    I'd initially been hesitant to rent it, as I have multiple bar clamps around the house and could have probably used them to get the task done. However, the robustness of this tool definitely made the job easier, so I'd highly recommend it to anyone who's going to tackle the job of replacing outdoor furniture slings. (Posted on 6/4/2016)

  29. Support Bar Tool Review by Richard

    Good afternoon. Just to let you know, I received the stretcher tool today at noon. Two hours later I was done with my chairs ! Couldn't have done it without this tool. Worked as advertised. I have it wrapped back up and will take it to Fed Ex tomorrow to ship it back to you. Again, thank you. My chairs look great again and I saved some $$$$ doing it my self.
