OLD BOOTH COVER
NEW BOOTH COVER
NEW CHAIR COVER
Staple removal can be done using a staple puller or a flathead screwdriver and a pliers. Occasionally, staples break and a portion is still sticking out of the wood. If this happens, use the bottom of the staple puller or screwdriver to pound the broken staple flat against the wood. If you don't, it can rip or create holes in your new cover during installation.
When it comes to staples, less is more. A staple every 1-2 inches is plenty to hold your cover in place. The fewer staples you use, the faster you can pull them before you install your next replacement cover. When you use too many staples, old covers get cut off instead of completely removed through staple pulling. However, installing new covers over old material full of staples can cause fit issues and makes your new cover wear out faster.
HOW TO STAPLE
To replace the old covers, you will need the following tools:
staple puller or flathead screwdriver and a pliers
Use one of the techniques below to create clean corners for your new cover.
STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL - BOOTH
Review the booth cover installation process as needed using the step by step instructions below...
Flip your booth seat so the top is facing up. Consider keeping the old cover you removed on the table to help prevent scratching the surface.
Line up the corners to ensure the length matches the seat. Double check to make sure you do not have the cover on backwards.
If your booth seat frame has wooden blocks in the back, locate where the cover meets the block.
Cut a small rectangular shape out where they meet to allow the cover to fit around the block.
Fit the cover around the block.
Stretch all four corners around the seat to create a smooth, tight fit.
Flip your booth seat over to begin stapling. Along a short edge of the booth, start by stapling just inside the corner seam on the back of your seat.
Next, staple in the opposite corner to keep the cover in place and properly aligned.
Then secure that entire side by stapling the material between the two corners. Rotate your booth seat and repeat these steps on the other short edge.
Once your short edges are stapled, cut the excess material out from behind the staples. This will leave a flap of thick vinyl sticking up at the corner which will get stapled down later.
Next, staple the long edge of your booth, starting in the middle, to keep the cover in place.
After stapling the middle, staple each corner. Fold the material down flat against the frame and use multiple staples to ensure the corner is fully secured to the wood.
Finally, staple the remaining material to the frame. Remember you only need a staple every 1-2 inches.
To finish, repeat these steps for the remaining two corners and final side of the booth seat.
