Replacing Patio Furniture Parts

patio furniture parts

Good quality patio furniture deserves special care when it shows signs of wear. Instead of throwing away or buying new pieces, restoration services provide more years of useable service.

At the outset of each process, a thorough inspection of the frame should be undertaken to detect broken welds, weak swivel mechanisms or other forms of structural damage. Glides should then be fitted onto each foot in order to protect surfaces underfoot while decreasing friction caused by shifting and movement.

Slings & Straps

Patio furniture sees heavy use over time, and over time its components wear down. Metal frames become marred with unsightly nicks and scratches; vinyl straps become loose; mesh slings rip; metal clips come loose. Replacing worn components helps restore the piece to its former beauty; however it must be done correctly so the new parts hold up securely over time.

Sling chairs are an ideal solution for areas that experience frequent high winds, as their air-permeable design allows airflow through the seating area and helps it hold its shape more effectively than webbing or vinyl straps. While sling chairs do have an edge when it comes to wind resistance, their seating material still degrades over time – replacing it may extend its life.

Sling furniture differs from webbing or vinyl strapping in that instead of sewn together to form a seat cushion, it uses one layer of tough, tightly woven fabric stretched between sling rails mounted to the furniture frame. Each rail features an opening slot along its length where seamed edges of fabric fit, along with an insert called a spline which keeps everything taut.

Replacement sling fabric can be purchased for most quality brands of patio or pool furniture sling slings such as Winston, Woodard, Tropitone Mallin and Brown Jordan slings. The process for buying replacement fabric slings is relatively straightforward and begins by unhooking old slings from furniture with scissors or garden shears before cutting all fasteners off with scissors or garden shears and cleaning thoroughly afterwards; this is also an opportune moment to address structural repairs or painting as needed.

Next, measure your current slings using a cloth tape measure. Take measurements from hole to hole across your frame or use the original plugged end as this will ensure that any replacement slings you purchase fit perfectly with your furniture. Measure width of current slings before purchasing enough replacements to redo all furniture in its entirety.

Sling Rail End Caps

Sling rail end caps are essential components of outdoor furniture that support structural integrity, while simultaneously adding to its aesthetic value. When placed at the ends of sling rails on patio chairs, these end caps help prevent wear-and-tear on fabric edges, reduce noise from metal-on-metal contact, keep water out of frame holes and add an attractive finishing touch – this simple furniture repair accessory gives aging furniture new life with minimal effort required!

Hauser’s Patio’s sleek black sling end cap offers a universal fit, making upgrading garden chairs quick and painless. Crafted from durable nylon material, this high-quality end cap can withstand even extreme weather conditions for extended outdoor furniture longevity.

To install a sling end cap, first remove the old one with a flat head screwdriver or pliers if it is particularly tight or stiff. For easier removal, spraying water mixed with dish soap onto one end of the sling can make removal simpler.

Once the end cap has been removed, install a new one by attaching it with plastic spline that fits through holes on the rail using sling spline or metal clips that fit securely against its frame. This way, it can cover and protect the end while offering years of comfortable lounging!

Wheels & Tires

Tires make an attractive and practical addition to patio furniture. Use one as a stool for kids, or stack two tires together as elevated seating. Wheels are attached by means of cotter pins which thread through holes at either end of an axle – these pins can easily be taken out using pliers; then the wheel itself can be unclipped and removed from its base. When purchasing new tires make sure they match in diameter so as to guarantee safe mounting together.


At times it can be frustrating when patio furniture starts showing signs of wear and tear. But that doesn’t have to be the end of it: There are replacement parts and restoration processes available that may restore it back to like-new condition.

Securing patio furniture during windy conditions can prevent it from being blown out of its proper place and/or being dislodged entirely. Many retailers carry patio furniture straps designed specifically to work with various outdoor chairs, chaise lounges, and tables – these easy-to-use straps provide stability during windy conditions without toppling over or moving furniture; additionally they are relatively simple to install/uninstall so are ideal for those who regularly rearrange their patio furniture arrangements.

Weighted foundations provide another way of safeguarding patio furniture during windy conditions, providing extra support for umbrella poles by counteracting their force with water or sand fill. By placing this accessory over the base of each umbrella pole and holding it firmly in place, it helps mitigate against winds’ force while keeping umbrellas from flying away!

Finally, stakes can help anchor down furniture that’s outdoors. This method works particularly well when anchoring outdoor chairs and benches situated in grassy areas; however, it won’t do much good if your patio furniture sits directly on concrete or other hard surfaces. For optimal results with this method, consider looping stakes through legs of furniture for additional strength and support.

If your patio furniture has the potential of blowing away in strong winds, consider purchasing sets made of heavy materials like cast aluminum or wrought iron. Such heavy materials tend to be less likely to get blown around or swept away from its place; alternatively you could tie together several pieces using bungee cords so as to form a solid mass less susceptible to moving in the wind; for an added measure you could also sew hook-and-loop strips onto cushion bases for attachment to furniture to ensure they stay put even under stronger gusts of airflow.
