Another good reason for using a compensation stick.
If placed on all outer corners, you will surely get a straight and vertical fabric line.
A compensation stick gives a good support to the fabric where two walls form an external angle. Sometimes walls angle are not straight due to the sheet rock. The plaster could also be uneven. Or the corner protector strip is deform or even slightly twisted. Use one stick to compensate then you will make an excellent wall upholstery job.
How to use the compensation stick?
Cut it to the desire length. Each end should have angle of 45 degree. Position the stick ¼” over the edge of the angle to compensate with the width of the padding and CES. Nail it to the wall.
Note Compensation stick has the same thickness as CES track. It is 1/4 inch thick by 1 ¼ inch wide.
Made from white plastic, it stays invisible even through light color fabric.
Not only it is placed at outside angles, but also combine with a compensation switch plate. It becomes an extension piece when there is 3 outlet switches next to each other. Visit the product page and read further on this topic.
