Quality Webbing
I bought this webbing for my glider rocker 2 1/2 years ago when local fabric stores and an upholstery shop didn't have any stretchy and durable webbing, and it is still like new. It hasn't broken or lost any elasticity. This is top-of-the-line material.

Would use it again
It worked very well. It definitely solved the problem I was having with the original webbing which was way to flexible and offered no support for the chair cushions. Easy to install with the metal web brackets they offer. Just pulled hand tight and installed a screw through the metal bracket into the metal tubing.

Woodworking Experience:
Love this webbing and metal ends. It was just like what I had. I repaired my rocker seat in less than 30 minutes ( of course I had a vise to clamp metal ends which made it really nice.)

I used the webbing for the seat cushion of the morris chair that I am building. Used plywood for the ottoman, and it is considerably harder. Seems to work as expected.

Great Strapping for My Glider Seat
You do need to stretch the material to get a nice firm seat. Bought enough to go 3 times across and 2 times front to back. The metal clips were easy to attach. I look forward to many years of enjoyment.

Have an antique rocking chair that belongs to my 90+ year old friends and the leather webbing deteriorated, wanted to keep it as natural as possible, tried putting a board in the hole and it was too hard (for their boney bottoms), found this website and decided that this should work.

Replacement of old webbing on a chair.
K K on Feb 11, 2017
This should replace the original, damaged straps that are on the underside (under the batting) of an antique chair I am restoring.
Tom S on Feb 3, 2017
My local upholstery shop and fabric store didn't have the right kind of material. They both had the same kind of webbing which had no stretch to it, but yet sagged after a week or two of use. One piece busted after a month's use. The kind Rockler sells seems to be the right kind and the customer reviews confirm it.

How can this be used with a metal chair frame with the slots for the webbing? How is the web secured to the frame?
Bonnie C on Apr 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: In such an application as this one would need to secure the webbing in the same manner as the original webbing being replaced was secured.
Can these metal ends be used without screwing them into the frame? Will they be strong enough pushed into the groove as indicated in the illustration?
A shopper on Jul 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is exactly what I did with mine. Works out well. The metal tabs crimp easily onto the webbing and are holding strong with out any mechanical fasteners.
Will these work on a Newport Glider?
Michael B on Jan 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have no idea. You clip the ends and then screw the metal part into a slot as shown in the photo. Very strong with little stretch.
how do you stretch the webbing to install?
Joseph Y on Sep 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Truthfully, we just cut it to the length we needed and pulled it as tight as we could by hand. I figure if it stretches we can just cut it again. Sorry if that's not very helpful, but it doesn't really stretch that much.
staples for chair webbing ok applicatiion?
sue p on Apr 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend staples alone for a chair application - particularly a seat that will need to hold a lot of weight. The metal ends (#41004) with nails or screws is really the best way to go.
Please let me know how much feet comes for the $3.99 of chair webbing?
Frances on Feb 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This product is priced by the foot, up to a maximum of 100 feet.
Can this be used as sofa seating support? I have a Woods End (from This End Up) sofa and loveseat. The sofa was originally a sleeper and we removed the hardware and replaced it with plywood, which is uncomfortable. The loveseat has 12 or 14 gauge coated wire mesh that is breaking (The crosswire creates 1"x4" openings) There is a frame front and back to secure, but nothing on the side.
Karen M on Aug 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure whether your frame will work. I used a similar but slightly more firm webbing called two-inch latex Elasbelt Webbing on an outdoor wicker sofa and two chairs. There is a metal frame with both front and back and side bars, so the webbing is double strength criss-cross across the frame. I would be concerned that there wouldn't be enough support overall.
What do you use to cut the webbing?
Joe Y on Sep 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I just use upholstery shears. Any good scissor will work. Fraying was not an issue with the upholstery clip.
does it take a special tool to apply the metal ends?
whitey on Mar 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No special tools were needed to put the metal ends on the straps. We used pliers.
Is the rubber coating latex based? This purchase would be for a home with latex allergies.
Spencer H on Jul 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm afraid I can't of much help with this question. I didn't look to see what the material was made of, and I doubt the manufacturer of this kind of thing says what it's made of. But it worked well, and I don't know how much of a concern this should be because the straps will be covered with cushions.
Can the metal ends be used with other webbing?
Ken H on Jun 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would think you could use on any course weave webbing. The inner portion ,of the clip has sharp catches that are compressed into the webbing to clamp it in place. A open weave or thin mesh would certainly pull out with any force. Any similar webbing as that shown should work well.
Is this type of webbing only to be used under cushions? Is it appropriate for applications where the webbing is exposed (the visible woven chair seat)? Is the rubberized material uncomfortable to feel next to one's skin?
Spencer H on Jul 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used mine under a cushion. I made a rectangular frame, routed a slot in two sides and attached the webbing using clamps sold by Rockler.
Can this be used for outdoor furniture?
Sally on Feb 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not really. If you are talking about weaving your own furniture seats, definitely no. It is not plastic, and it stretches, so getting it wet isn't advisable.
Will this work for McGuire Ratan chairs?
Fred L on Jun 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have only worked with chair webbing one time and don't know anything about types and brands of chairs.
Will these metal ends go into maple wood?
ruth b on Mar 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I installed the metal ends on a maple rocker but the groves were there already. This was 2 years ago and it still works. I did use screws.
I only need 10' of webbing can I order 10' ?
Rick K on Nov 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I needed only 6 feet and got 6 feet.
I am having difficulty getting the metal clip into the slot - is there a trick to getting them in without bending the clip edge that extends toward the center of the chair?
chris G on Oct 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: to make the clip/strap as thin as possible, I thought about using a hammer, but settled on putting into the vise (not the woodworking vise), the other kind vise. After that, I found my preexisting slots in the chair were enough to drop in the clip/strap ends (drop in easily). Now when the time comes to make new furniture with new slots, I think I will use a narrow straight bit on my router. If I didn't have a router to make the slot, I think I create a slot from lots (and lots) of predrilled holes side by side, cleaned up afterward with either a very narrow chisel or maybe a hand saw, like maybe the saw I would use to cut sheet rock.
Instructions for installing webbing in Tele City rockers. How to measure the length of webbing after first bracket is installed?
Mary C on Jul 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I just guessed. I stretched the first piece as long/hard as I could and made a mark on the webbing. Cut it and fitted to slots with screws. It looked tight enough and the rest were the same length. It needs to be very tight to prevent sagging. Sorry not a better answer.
My wicker furniture has this exact same strap and clip webbing, The original webbing is woven up/down and across. According to your technical bulletins this strapping/clips can be run long-ways only
and will suffice. Any comments?
Vikki S on Jun 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend running it like the original. Cross webbing keeps the straps from separating, and also provides better weight support and longer life for the webbing.
How much webbing do I need for a chair area opening 18" x 18"?
Learning on Sep 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Just add 18 inches by how many strips you have on your chair. So if you have 6 strips times 18 inches it would be 108 inches or 9 feet of material for example
I have a rocker with opening that measures 16" square and has 4 strips each way. How do I order?
Eve H on Oct 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You need to order enough material to do 16 in x 8 strips or 128 inches long minimum. You also need a bag of the clamps that go on the end of the strips that fit into the grooves. 8 strips will require 16 clamps one on each end. Measure and cut the strips to be just slightly longer than you need to go groove to groove. Hammer the metal Clips on each end then hammer them into the grooves. Worked for me very simple.
Hi is this suitable for outdoor furniture and does it have stretch?
Sally on Feb 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It does have slight stretch. I used it on chairs that are indoor. Not sure if it would hold up to weather.
How do I know how to measure the amount I need? There were 5 straps on the chair originally. The movers lost the straps. The 10 clips are enough
Frances on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would just measure across the chair and add some for slack and multiply by 5.
I have Eathan Allen sofa and chair, the rubber webbing is warn and sagging, can this be replaced ? 50 years old
Carolyn J on Jul 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Can't answer specifically about Ethan Allen, but if the old webbing is the elastic type you definetly can replace it. But first, look and see what method of anchoring the webbing is used by the manufacturer. Can you reuse the anchor method, or do you have to use a new anchor system?
what type of screws do we use with the metal ends?
Christine M on Nov 22, 2017
I have a wicker chair with a removable metal base the cushion sits on. The material stretches width and length across a metal tube and is stapled and screwed into the tube. Each piece is singular. Could I replace it with this material as it’s all stretched out over continuos seating outside?
