Correct Sling Measurement Procedure for Seating Slings
|There is very little
tolerance for errors when measuring slings,
so please follow these instructions
TOOLS REQUIRED: You will need a CLOTH tape measure -- the kind used by
THE SLING SHOULD BE MOUNTED IN THE
CHAIR, AND THE BOLTS HOLDING
THE SLING RAILS TO THE CHAIR FRAME SHOULD BE TIGHT.
STEP 1: Measure the WIDTH: It is important that you measure at the two points
where the bolts attaching the sling rails to the frame are located. You will find the upper ones near the
rear of the arms, and the lower ones under the seat, near the front. DO NOT MEASURE AT THE VERY TOP OR THE
FRONT OF THE SLING.
Measure the exposed fabric from side to side. What you see is what you
measure! Take the AVERAGE of the two measurements to the nearest 1/8 inch.
STEP 2: Measure the length: The tape measure must follow the contour of the sling
curves. This is why you need a CLOTH tape measure. Measure the entire length of the groove in the sling rail,
regardless of where your current sling starts or ends (sometimes the slings have shrunk in the track, leaving
a gap at the top or bottom, so we don't want the new sling measurement to be based on the shorter length).
Don't include the plastic end caps in the measurement: you should start and end the measurements right where the
groove is visible at the caps.
Measure both sides and average the two sizes to the nearest 1/4 inch.
We will make the slings to YOUR measurements. Therefore, we assume NO
if your sling measurement is not correct.
Slings may NOT be returned or refunded.
PLACING YOUR ORDER
When you add a sling to the shopping cart, you will see three drop-down boxes. In these you will choose the
sling width, the sling length, and the fabric you have chosen. There are an additional two boxes for width
& length in case your chair has two slings.
