[DML] Re: Size of hog rings needed for seat covers?



I did both my seats with the two-tone covers from DMCH.  I used cable ties for the neck pieces based on advice in this column - many thanks!  On the seat backs I used a few cable ties to help pull the fabric into the fold. I did have to economize on the hog rings towards the very end.  I did check and the hog rings from home depot - for chain link fences - are like four times the size of the ones provided with the seats.

Btw... the seats turned out great. It took me about 12 hours start to finish, but I W's very careful removing the prior covers to make sure I knew how to put it back.  Hands were still covered in cuts from all the times reaching through the wires.

I also used them as handles to pull the rod pocket in the seat back through the foam. Everything else was hog ringed per OEM.
