the tro pi to n e ® d if f e re n c e
You have made an investment in fine casual furniture. This booklet is
intended to help you take care of your Tropitone® products and explains
the special design and assembly techniques that make Tropitone®
furniture worth maintaining – the special features that make
The Tropitone® Difference.
frames
All Tropitone® extruded aluminum furniture frames feature a welded, all
aluminum frame construction. Tropitone® uses full circumference welding
in all load bearing joints since it is the strongest way to join two pieces
of aluminum.
Tropitone® collections may feature frames that are either solid cast aluminum
or a combination of cast and extruded aluminum. Cast to extruded material
connections have a deep penetrating weld design to insure superior strength.
finishes
pre-wash/pre-finish
All Tropitone® casual furniture is prepared for our powder coated finish in
a multi-step wash process which both cleans the frame and also applies
a special finish-bonding agent. This ensures that the powder coating will
adhere uniformly.
powder coating
Tropitone® durable polyurethane or polyurethane/polyester blend powder
coating is significantly thicker than paint. It is applied electrostatically as
a powder and then baked at temperatures exceeding 400° F / 205° C. This
causes the powder to melt and flow evenly all around the frame. Because
the powder coating process follows the frame construction, the entire frame
is actually sealed in this powder coating. Tropitone® pioneered textured
finishes for outdoor furniture.
strapping, lacing and ez span ™ segments
Tropitone® uses only the finest, heavy-gauge virgin vinyl with added
mildew inhibitors and ultraviolet stabilizers. We require a specific vinyl
thickness and hardness durometer for durability and "memory". (The
"memory" of the vinyl is its ability to return to the original shape after use.)
Our vinyl is formulated to provide years of service. The proprietary material
that formulates our EZ Span™ segments also must meet these same
material requirements.

t h e t ro pito n e ® di fferenc e
fabric and fills
All of our fabrics for slings, cushions and umbrellas are designed and
constructed for outdoor use and are formulated to withstand the elements.
All dry quickly, contain mildew inhibitors and are stain resistant. Please note
that proper care will extend the life of the fabric.
All of our cushions are water-resistant and feature quality polyester fill and/
or foam. This fill and foam are designed to dry quickly and retain its loft
during use. Our outdoor cushions are constructed of fabrics containing UV
and mildew inhibitors. Additionally, each cushion is constructed of a mildewresistant core of self-draining fills, which is then wrapped in a water resistant
covering. Very little water will enter into the cushion, but will quickly drain by
standing the cushion on its side.
Tropitone® "tight seat" cushions were created to be weather resistant, using
outdoor grade materials and utilizing a moisture barrier beneath the fabric
covering. All removable pads and lounge cushions will quickly drain water by
standing the cushion on its side.
All Tropitone® fabrics, fill and foam are flame retardant, meeting fire code
rating CA117.
table tops
Tropitone® leads the industry in offering table surface options: Acrylic,
Clear Glass, Textured Glass, Stoneworks® Collections, HPL, Cast Aluminum,
Patterned Aluminum, and Natural Stone products. Many of these are
available with holes to accommodate the use of an umbrella.
acrylic table tops are highly impact resistant. The textured surface helps
hide any scuffs or scratches.
glass table tops are tempered for safety. Should a top break, it will crumble
into cubes, not shatter into sharp shards.
stoneworks® solid surface table tops combine dramatic looks with
durable construction. They feature a thick soft radius edge with a textured
stone pattern.
hpl table tops offer unique finishes on a seamless solid surface.
natural stone table tops are available in granite.

Tropitone® Casual Furniture offers a wide variety of frame styles and finish
colors combined with an outstanding variety of coordinating fabrics.

Regular periodic care of your Tropitone® furniture will maintain its
appearance and functionality better than occasional, heavy duty
maintenance. Consider the specific conditions and usage to which your
product is exposed so appropriate maintenance is provided. Product failure
caused by a lack of reasonable and necessary care and maintenance is not
covered by the product warranty.
frames
Regularly tighten all hardware to avoid loosening which can lead to bolt
failure and product breakage. Replace missing hardware (remove product
from service until repaired). Regularly tighten the headrest bolts on all chaise
lounges and recliners. Confirm movement is smooth without binding and that
the ratchet engages properly at each position.
painted finishes
Painted finishes are used on aluminum seating, tables and umbrellas.
Periodically clean the finish with a sponge or soft bristle brush using a
cleaning solution with 1/4 cup (2 oz.) mild biodegradable liquid soap in a
gallon of lukewarm water (100º F / 38º C). Rinse thoroughly. Avoid using
abrasive cleaners. For gloss finishes, we recommend periodic waxing of the
frame with a high grade automotive liquid wax or the use of a commercially
available protectant to help maintain and/or restore the luster of the finish.
Protectants can be purchased at most casual furniture retailers.
caution seaside/indoor pool areas: In seaside use, salt can accumulate
on the finish, leading to finish failure. In indoor pool areas, chlorides
can accumulate on the finish, leading to finish failure. In both of these
environments, repeated cycles of condensation followed by evaporation
cause build-up of these aggressive corrosives. Regular cleaning with mild
biodegradable liquid soap and water will remove the concentrated deposits
and protect the furniture finish per the above instructions.

c l e a ni ng a nd c a re
fabric
The life of your furniture fabric largely depends on its care. Clean all spills
promptly. Fabric life can be extended by simply rinsing down the furniture
regularly with water. Certain suntan and sun block products may permanently
discolor any fabric. This possibility can be minimized by immediately cleaning
after contact. In addition, storing the cushions when not in use will extend
cushion life.
Prepare a cleaning solution with 1/4 cup (2 oz.) mild biodegradable liquid
soap in a gallon of lukewarm water (no warmer than 100º F / 38º C).
Clean fabric with the solution using a sponge or soft bristle brush.
Rinse thoroughly with clean water. Allow to air dry.
hint: Standing a cushion on its side will help it drain faster.
caution: Certain suntan and sun block products contain "PABA". PABA
is harmful to fabric and can permanently discolor it; therefore, contact
with cushions or slings should be avoided. If contact is made, cleaning the
fabric immediately with a non-abrasive, mild biodegradable soap and water
solution followed by a fresh water rinse may minimize the possibility of
discoloration. Laying a beach towel over the cushions or slings of outdoor
furniture whenever you are using the furniture will prolong the fabric life.

Do not use a bleach solution unless specifically listed as a cleaning agent for the specific fabric, such as for solution dyed acrylics.
Do not submerse or allow cushions to lie in standing water.
Do not put cushions into the dryer.
Do not use harsh detergents or stiff bristle brushes.
Do not use Pine Oil cleaners or abrasive household cleaners.
Do not use heat or hot water.
Mildew may form on dirt or other substances deposited upon the fabric.
Regular cleaning of the furniture will help to prevent its forming. If mildew
does develop, add 1 cup bleach to the cleaning solution. Apply to the
affected area and allow to soak in. Scrub with a soft bristle brush, then rinse
thoroughly. Repeat if necessary. For stubborn mildew stains, use a household
mildew remover – test in an inconspicuous location first. FOLLOW THE
MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS.

straps, lacing and ez span ™ segments
Vinyl straps, lacing and EZ Span™ segments must be cleaned frequently with
a sponge or soft bristle brush using a cleaning solution with 1/4 cup (2 oz.)
mild biodegradable liquid soap in a gallon of lukewarm water (100º F / 38º C).
Rinse thoroughly.
In geographical areas with high concentrations of acid rain, fog and/or smog,
vinyl must be cleaned monthly with a lukewarm water and ammonia mixture.
Use three parts water to one part ammonia. Rinse thoroughly.
For furniture with woven straps or lacing, be sure to lift and clean beneath
the strap and/or lace intersections. Commercial casual furniture cleaners will
help lift embedded dirt and oil from vinyl and are available at leading casual
furniture dealers. EZ Span™ segments have a slight texture; the segments
may be cleaned lightly with a non-scratch scrub sponge or soft bristle brush
to lift embedded dirt. caution: Do NOT use abrasive cleaners on vinyl straps,
lacing or EZ Span™ segments.
caution: Certain suntan and sun block products contain "PABA". PABA is
harmful to vinyl and can permanently discolor it; therefore, contact with vinyl
straps or lacing should be avoided. If contact is made, cleaning the vinyl
immediately with a non-abrasive, mild biodegradable soap and water solution
followed by a fresh water rinse may minimize the possibility of discoloration.
Laying a beach towel over the vinyl straps of outdoor furniture whenever you
are using the furniture will help protect the vinyl from the discoloring effects
of PABA.

original finish isn’t altered. Remember to rub with the metal grain (not in
a circular motion). Rinse furniture thoroughly with clean water. Finally, dry
thoroughly to prevent streaks, rubbing with the grain.
If the stain or rust remains, you can use a Scotch-Brite® No Scratch MultiPurpose Scrub Sponge or a Scotch-Brite® General Purpose Hand Pad 7447
to polish the stainless steel. It is critical to rub with the metal grain (not in
a circular motion). Rinse furniture thoroughly with clean water. Finally, dry
thoroughly to prevent streaks, rubbing with the grain.
caution: Salt or acid (from coffee, wine, orange juice, tomato juice, lemon,
etc) can discolor stainless steel if not cleaned up promptly.
caution seaside/indoor pool areas: Stainless steel products used in
seaside or indoor pool settings will require more frequent cleaning to remove
chloride deposits to prevent corrosion and etching.

soft, absorbent cloth. For heavily soiled areas, allow cleaner to stand for
about one minute before wiping off.
caution: Alcohol or acid (from coffee, wine, orange juice, tomato juice,

cl ea ni n g a nd c a re
natural stone sealing
Sealing with quality stone care products will help to protect the granite from
absorbing liquids and staining. In a residential setting, sealing on a semiannual (twice yearly) basis should be sufficient. In a contract environment,
more frequent sealing will be needed.
Sun exposure and other factors increase sealing frequency. If liquids darken
or discolors the stone surface, sealer re-coating is necessary immediately.
Test by allowing water to remain for ten (10) minutes and observing the
stone surface. If the stone darkens or absorbs the liquid, immediate sealing
is needed.
FOLLOWING THE MANUFACTURER’S NATURAL STONE SEALER INSTRUCTIONS
IS CRITICAL FOR GOOD RESULTS. Sealing with a penetrating (or impregnating)
sealer will provide a protective coating to stand up to the daily use of stone
cleaners and normal exposure to liquids, while minimizing opportunity for
liquids and stains to penetrate the stone. Multiple coats of sealer may be
needed on porous stone. Repeat penetrating sealer application until sealer
isn’t absorbed by the stone.
Should your natural stone incur a stain, contact a local stone resource for
products and guidance regarding stain removal. Stain removal is difficult – in
some cases, only fading of the stain will be achieved. It is far better to prevent
stains with proper cleaning and sealing.

rotoform3 polymer
The contemporary design is enhanced with a wide selection of fabrics and
complemented by comfortable cushion design. Should the cushions become
wet, remove cushions from the base and stand on end to allow to drain and
dry. Wipe down the base deck surface to remove any residual water.
Remove cushions, bolsters, and throw pillows to prevent staining of fabric,
as cleaners used on polymer resin furniture are not appropriate for fabric.
Unsnap back and seat cushions by gently pulling the snap at the connection
to the cushion. Stack on a clean and dry surface.
Apply cleaning solution (Simple Green®, Mr. Clean®, or other non-abrasive
multi-purpose cleaner) directly to heavily soiled areas. Using a mild scrub
sponge, wipe the entire furniture surface. Heavily soiled areas can be
scrubbed with the scouring pad or scrubbing sponge.
Rinse furniture thoroughly with clean water. Dry completely before installing
cushions. Install seat cushions and snap into place. Install back cushions and
snap into place. Replace bolsters and throw pillows.

When using outdoors, basic safety precautions should always be followed to
reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and personal injury.
Ground Fault Circuit Interruption (GFCI) protection is required on the circuit
or outlet to be used for any wet location, including all outdoor locations.
Receptacles are available which have built in GFCI protection and are
acceptable to be used for this measure of safety.

teak wood
Periodically clean teak with a sponge or soft bristle brush using a cleaning
solution with 1/4 cup (2 oz.) mild biodegradable liquid soap in a gallon of
lukewarm water (100º F / 38º C). Rinse thoroughly.
Teak will naturally weather to a soft grey patina color over time when exposed
to the elements. This process could take up to several years depending on
your climate. If you desire this natural finish, do nothing to the teak furniture
other than periodic cleaning described above.
Mildew may form on teak; regular cleaning of outdoor furniture will help
to prevent its forming. If mildew does develop, add 1/4 cup bleach to the
cleaning solution. Apply to the affected area and scrub with a soft bristle
brush, then rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary.
Should you choose to retain the original look of teak, apply a high grade teak
wood sealer before the product weathers. FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER’S
INSTRUCTIONS. Be aware sealing will become a periodic maintenance
task. Some teak sealer manufacturers recommend applying teak oil prior to
sealing, which can intensify the color and grain of the wood. If the teak has
already weathered and you wish to restore the original finish, apply teak
wood cleaner that is designed to restore weathered teak. Tropitone® does
not warranty the furniture finish when sealed or oiled. Always FOLLOW THE
MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS for application of oil, cleaner and sealer.
caution: Do NOT get teak oil, teak sealer or teak cleaner on the fabric.

6.
Hold the can 4 – 6 inches away from the surface to be painted. Apply the touch-up paint with short light sprays until complete coverage is
obtained. Be sure to avoid "over-spraying" onto adjacent areas.
Over-spray must be removed immediately using rubbing alcohol and
a soft cloth.

caution: One heavy coat may cause the surrounding finish to loosen and
wrinkle due to the solvents in the spray paint.
caution: Trying to get full coverage in the first coat may result in a glossy
surface. Should this happen, dull with a light (thin) coat applied after the
offending glossy coat has dried.
8. Certain colors require a second coat with a supplied "Step 2" spray paint. Hold the can 12 inches from the surface and use one quick pass. Allow to dry.

turning the can upside down and depressing the nozzle, spraying onto a
disposable cloth. Store touch-up spray cans upside down as the nozzles are
less likely to clog.

Regularly tighten all hardware to avoid loosening which can lead to bolt
failure and product breakage. Replace missing hardware (remove product
from service until repaired). Regularly tighten the headrest bolts on all chaise
lounges and recliners. Confirm movement is smooth without binding and that
the ratchet engages properly at each position.
glides and end caps
Glides (often referred to as "nylon feet") are sometimes lost or become worn
with use, and should be replaced when lost or worn for stability and safety.
Replacement glides and end caps are available from your local Tropitone®
Residential Dealer or Contract Sales Representative.
Certain nylon glides and end caps are available in various colors depending
upon the frame color. When ordering replacement glides and end caps,
please specify frame color. Replacement parts for older models may only be
available in limited colors.
riveted nylon glides
Nylon glides that are riveted to the tubing can be replaced by drilling out the
existing rivet and installing a new glide with a new pop rivet. A pop rivet tool
or kit is available at most hardware stores.
riveted cups with nylon caps
Your local Tropitone® Residential Dealer or Contract Sales Representative can
supply either the replacement glides or a complete kit with cup, screw and
nylon cap.
welded cups with nylon caps
If the aluminum cup is worn or broken off, it can be replaced by drilling a pilot
hole and using a self-tapping screw to hold the aluminum cup in place. A
nylon cap snaps easily over this aluminum cup.
leveling
Many dining table legs and many other table legs have leveling glides
which can be adjusted so the table will sit level. On other table and seating
pieces, check that the glides (nylon feet) are properly seated and not worn.
Replacement glides are available through your local Tropitone® Residential
Dealer or Contract Sales Representative.
If a chair or small table sits unevenly on the floor, determine if the floor is flat
by switching it with another piece in a different area. If the wobble moves
with the piece, determine the "long" leg. Begin adjustment by placing a
small block of wood on the floor under the long leg.
24 | tropitone.com
fr a m es
Now, lift the chair and firmly bring it down so that long leg contacts the wood.
This should adjust the longer leg. If there is serious unevenness that cannot
be corrected, contact your local Tropitone® Residential Dealer or Contract
Sales Representative.
lubrication of swivels, wheels and hinges
Periodic lubrication with a silicon lubricant spray of all moving parts is
recommended to extend the product life and minimize squeaks or noises.
FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS for use.
stacking and nesting
Tropitone® recommends that when moving or storing any stacking aluminum
outdoor furniture it is stacked no more than the specific recommended stack
heights for safety and to reduce the potential from rubbing, wear or marring
of the frame finishes. Nesting furniture comes forward as it is stacked,
therefore maximum nest height is especially critical as the stack could slide
if the limit is exceeded. Contact your local Tropitone® Residential Dealer or
Contract Sales Representative for stack quantity.
safety warning! Do NOT sit on any furniture that is already stacked.
tire replacement
Installing a new tire on chaise lounges or serving carts may be easier after
soaking the tire in hot water for several minutes. Use tongs to remove it
from the hot water and be sure to protect your hands with gloves when
handling. Simply pull the old tire off and push the new tire on. Contact your
local Tropitone® Residential Dealer or Contract Sales Representative for a
replacement part.
winter storage
Tropitone® furniture is intended to be used outdoors. In milder climates, the
furniture can be left outdoors year-round. Each piece has drain holes built
into the frame to minimize water build up.
caution: Do NOT store frames upside down.
If you live in an area that experiences freezing conditions, store your clean
and dry Tropitone® outdoor furniture right side up in a dry, protected place.
Water can collect and/or condense inside the frame tubing – if exposed to
freezing temperatures, this water could freeze causing the frame tubing to
crack or burst. This damage is NOT covered under your warranty.

1. Use a utility knife to cut the entire length of the sling.
2. Remove the nylon end caps from the top and bottom of both sling
rail channels with a flat blade screwdriver and a mallet. Retain the
end caps.
3. Use a 3/16" Allen wrench to loosen the two socket head cap screws
(bolts) on one sling rail until only a few threads are engaged. Some
chairs have one welded sling rail – loosen the bolted rail only.
4. Remove the spreader bar (some have a 90º bend on one end to "hook"
into the sling rail) from the upper back of the chair.
two hole style: Disconnect one sling rail to remove the spreader bar, then reinstall the sling rail by only putting bolts and washers/spacers until only a few threads are engaged.

6. Apply a small amount of water soluble cold cream or liquid biodegradable
soap at the sling insertion point (top) of each sling rail to ease installation.
7.
For one piece slings, position the sling so the production tag and/or law
label will be at the foot of the chair and the finished side of the sling is facing forward. Start at the top of the loosened sling rail and slowly slide
the sling along the sling rail channel using pliers.
8. After sliding the first side of the sling onto the loosened sling rail, detach this sling rail from the chair frame.
9.
Have a second person hold the disconnected sling rail on which you
have installed the sling. Use pliers to firmly and slowly slide the
remaining side of the sling into the other sling rail.
reminder: the bolts should already be loosened on this sling rail.
10.Pull the sling down a couple inches on the disconnected rail. Insert the
spreader bar straight end (non-hook) in the attached sling rail hole.
two hole style: Have a second person help by firmly stretching the
sling rails apart and then slightly rotating the detached rail. Insert the
hook end of the spreader bar into the hole. This may take a few tries – take your time with this step.
•
•
slot style: After inserting the spreader bar into the attached sling rail hole, lower the other end into the slot.
11. Pull the sling evenly up and down to the ends of both sling rails.
12.A sling tool can be helpful at this step (available for purchase from your
local Tropitone® Residential Dealer or Contract Sales Representative).
Have a second person position the detached sling rail to be attached,
aligning the bolt holes. Reinstall the bolt and washer/spacer in the front
seat area, only tightening a few turns. Reinstall the bolt and washer/
spacer in the back seat area. Fully tighten both bolts in this sling rail.
13.On the other sling rail, tighten each bolt several turns using the Allen
wrench, alternating between each bolt to apply even tension. Continue
until both bolts are fully tightened.
14.Trim excess vinyl spline (plastic rod) from the top and bottom of both sling rails using the cutting pliers.
15.Reinsert the end caps. Tap gently with the mallet until fully inserted.

replacing chaise lounge seat
1.
Remove the nylon end caps from the foot of each sling rail channel with
a flat blade screwdriver and a mallet. Retain the end caps. Some
chaises don’t have end caps at the foot – tilt the headrest fully forward
and remove the end caps from the other end of the sling rails.
2.
On one sling rail, use a 3/16" Allen wrench to remove the two socket
head cap screws (bolts) towards the foot of the sling rail so it can be
slightly angled towards the attached sling rail. On the other sling rail,
loosen two bolts from the foot end of the sling rail until only a few
threads remain engaged. Some chaises have one welded sling rail –
remove the bolted rail only.
3. Use pliers to slide the sling out from the sling rails. You will need to alternate pulling between each side several inches at a time.
4. Apply a small amount of water soluble cold cream or biodegradable liquid soap at the sling insertion point of each sling rail to ease installation.
5.
Position the new seat sling so the production tag and/or law labels will be at the foot of the chaise and the finished side of the sling is
facing forward. Slide the vinyl splines (plastic rods) within the fabric to
be even with the end of the fabric where it will touch the two remaining
end caps.
28 | tropitone.com
seati ng
6. Slowly slide both sides of the sling into the sling rail channel using
pliers until the sling reaches both end caps. You will need to alternate
pulling on each side.
7.
Have a second person position the detached sling rail to be reattached.
Reinstall the bolt and washer/spacer in the foot area, only tightening
a few turns. Reinstall the bolt and washer/spacer in the back seat area.
Fully tighten both bolts in this sling rail.
8. On the other sling rail, tighten each bolt several turns using the Allen
wrench, alternating between each bolt to apply even tension. Continue
until all bolts are fully tightened.
9. Trim excess vinyl spline from both sling rails.
10.Reinsert the end caps. Tap gently with the mallet until fully inserted.
replacing chaise lounge headrest
hint: Place the headrest sling in the sun to warm the fabric which will allow
the material to stretch during installation.
1. With the headrest in a down position, use a utility knife to cut the entire length of the headrest sling.
2. Remove the nylon end caps from the top of each sling rail channel with a flat blade screwdriver and a mallet. Retain the end caps.
3. With the headrest in a down position, use pliers to pull the sling out from the sling rails.
4.
Remove one socket head cap screw (bolt) in the support bar. Loosen
the other bolt in the support bar (some are welded on one side – detach
other side only). Gently angle the detached side of the support bar
below the sling rail; you may need to use a large screwdriver to pry
the bar out of its position. This will allow the sling rails to be slightly
angled together.
5. Apply a small amount of water soluble cold cream or biodegradable
liquid soap at the sling insertion point of each sling rail to ease
installation.

replacing chaise lounge headrest (continued)
6.
Position the new headrest sling so the finished side of the sling is
facing forward. For padded headrest slings, check for an additional
finishing sew line at one end of the sling – orient this end of the sling to
the top of the chaise. Slide the vinyl splines (plastic rods) within
the fabric to be even with the end of the fabric where it will touch the
two remaining end caps.
7. Slowly slide both sides of the sling into the sling rail channel using pliers until the sling reaches both end caps. You will need to alternate
pulling on each side.
8.
A sling tool can be helpful at this step (available for purchase from your
local Tropitone® Residential Dealer or Contract Sales Representative).
Using two persons, reposition the headrest support bar which will pull
the sling tight. Pry between slide rail and the support bar while the
second person moves the support bar inside the sling rails. Align the
hole in the support bar with the hole in the sling rail – an alignment tool
or small Phillips screwdriver may be needed. Reinstall the bolt and washer then fully tighten both support bar bolts.
9. Trim excess vinyl spline from both sling rails.
10.Reinsert the end caps. Tap gently with the mallet until fully inserted.

local Tropitone® Residential Dealer or Contract Sales Representative, or at
a recommended repair center. Simply order the color and number of pre-cut
straps needed from your local Tropitone® Residential Dealer or Contract Sales
Representative. Tropitone® has two methods of attaching a strap: the "rivet
style" uses a nylon rivet inserted through a hole in the strap and pressed into a
corresponding hole in the frame, the "slot style" utilizes a tab configuration on
the strap end which fits into a slot punched in the frame. When ordering straps,
provide the chair name and number, vinyl color, and the strap type: rivet style
or slot style. New nylon rivets will be included with a "rivet style" strap order.

safety warning! Be sure to protect your hands with gloves when handling hot straps.
2.
Remove old straps – cut down the middle of the straps to be replaced.
Unwrap and disconnect. Notice how the wrap "rotation" of the strap
comes off from the frame. You will wrap the new straps the same way.
Clean the frame.
3.
Attach one end of the strap to the frame (for rivet straps, install one rivet) as shown below. Wrap the strap around the frame, slowly and steadily stretching (so narrow spots don’t develop) the strap to the opposite side.
4.
Two inches off to one side of the rivet hole or slot, wrap the remaining end of the strap around the frame one time. Continue wrapping toward the slot or rivet hole until fully wrapped. Fasten this end to the frame with the second rivet or by putting the tab in the slot.
5. Realign the strap by shifting it back over the tab or rivet which will
"double wrap" the connection point. The strap will tighten when cooled.
6. Repeat for remaining straps.
