I would use Loctite Marine glue. It is used for boats and can withstand water and pressure. I have used it on many outside project with no problem.
I am considering an alternative replacement options that don’t involve glue for my Woodard ramsgate chairs from the 1990s.
Heres a few diy instruction links for your viewing and consideration.
After you glued the straps I wonder if you were to drill small holes in each to reinforce them with flat headed nuts on top screwed into washer topped nuts underneath. I’m not sure if that would help or compromise the strength of the straps so it’s just an idea.
If I were you I would look up macramé and do it that way. It will tell you how, I had a cousin that use to so it and it is beautiful and very sturdy on the old chairs. I would love to do mine but I have carpel and can't use my hands to well. good luck.
I have those same exact chairs and am stumped also as to an economical way to redo the. What did you end up doing please??
Dee, were you able to re-strap these chairs, I also have a very nice set that I want to redo
Buffy, were you able to re-strap your chairs, I have a nice set I also would like to re-strap
Does ANYONE have any ideas?? I can't even get through to the manufacturer of the replacement strapping to get answers. GRRR
I have the exact same chairs and have been trying to figure out what glue to use???
Gorilla glue. But new chairs are so inexpensive and nicer, I wouls chuck them.
I have these same exact chairs as well. I plan to redo the metal and powdercoat them. I am going to order some vinyl strapping first and play with how to attach them. I will either glue them with some vinyl glue or double wrap them to see if that works. I can see that macrame would work as well but not sure I have the patience for that.
So many glues to choose from. Its confusing. I would seek out an epoxy for plastic & metal that is weather proof. You really got to read the labels on the back. But an epoxy that requires 2 chemicals joining to make a bond are probably your best choice for long term hold
Mine are glued in and I got the same chairs. I bought the roll of 2in wide and 1½ in wide roll of vinyl with industrial strength vinyl cement from amazon . Riquelme187 is my YouTube if u guys wanna check out the time lapse I plan to do this week
I was hoping to find an answer too! Mine don't have the bar, there is a slit then they are double wrapped but not sure what holds them in! And who ever said chuck them -- noooooo -- these are the MOST comfortable chairs. If anyone has links /suggestions for the macrame they could share I would appreciate it. I may have to consider that.
Tara, Here you go!
