Upholstery Tacks are a wonderful product for those who need an affordable, reusable way to secure upholstery fabric to their furniture. There are many different styles of these “tacks” available, and they can be used on just about any type of furniture, from a sofa to a chair to a table. Upholstered furniture often requires special treatment in order to prevent stains from forming. These tacks are made out of high quality materials that can withstand any type of staining or damaging actions, and they are very inexpensive compared to the cost of replacing a couch or chair. They can also save you time when you need to replace a damaged area of fabric in your furniture, since you won’t have to manually drag out a large, heavy sofa or chair to repair it.
Upholstery tacks come in a variety of sizes 10mm 13mm 15mm. Some are designed to attach to your upholstery, while others are designed with nails that hook under the piece of furniture and through the fabric of the chair seat. You can choose between tacks that hook under the furniture frame and those that hook directly to the frame. If you already have upholstered furniture in your home, you may consider simply adding a few extra nails to the ends of your current upholstery, or by purchasing a chair cushion that will allow you to quickly pin the new tack to the furniture. When sewing the new tack into the existing fabric, be sure to sew the entire cushion down to the frame so that it completely covers the frame, including any seams.
If you don’t already have any upholstered furniture at all, or if you’re trying to reupholster a piece of furniture that you already own, you can purchase one or more Upholstery Tacks from an upholstery store. Upholstery tacks usually come in a package containing a head and foot, which allow you to quickly and easily install the tack. You’ll need upholstery nails, or “nailheads”, that is long enough to go through the fabric of the seat. Nailheads are typically rounded or pointed, depending on what type of material is being covered. When installing the nails, make sure to go all the way through the fabric of the chair, through the hole in the back of the upholstery tack, and through the “nailhead” of the furniture.
