Here at A&W we see a wide variety of upholstery repairs that need to come in. Anywhere from torn backs from couches, chairs, dining room seats to what we have here today. A boat seat. Side rails that a customer who was trying to install, he had tore the top of it. So we're going to take it apart, pull it around and fix it for him. We get a staple puller, pop a few staples out. Take our dikes, get them more out of the way for us. Pop it up, make sure it's all good. Take and pull it just a little tighter. Vinyl stretches a little easier most times than most fabrics will. So what we're going to do just take and fold it, pull it a little tight, put a hold behind the back of it. Set us a few staples and there we go.
