Wall upholstery tool kit
In the Deluxe series of wall upholstery tool kit, we have 5 hand tools. You will use them at different stage of the installation. These hard to find specialty hand tools are strong and could be a life time buy if treated well.
Not only made from strong materials with stainless steel blades but also, they have an excellent rubber handles.
Lets take a closer look at our wall upholstery tool kit.
To begin with, we have the straight spatula. It has a 2″ by 4″ flat blade with a 5 inch handles. Use it in the beginning, when stretching and fitting the fabric in the track. So, this tool tacks the fabric from place to place around a wall or a panel.
The angle spatula is like the one describe above but the difference is in the blade. It is bend to facilitate the tacking in hard place. A useful tool for working close to a ceiling and floor.
Next there is a rocker which has 11″ of working blade. Rocker is designed for inserting the fabric after it is in the correct place. Rock it back and forth for pushing the fabric in the track. All your fingers fit comfortably inside a rubber handle. Please note the spatula blade could be sharp when brand new. We recommend to sand down the sharp edges with a very fine sand paper. Always use caution with thin fabric.
Speed roller provides quick and steady insertion of the fabric in straight line. A very short video is available to see the hand tool in action at the finish line. You can read more about speed roller in this page since it is sold separately. Don’t use it on arch doors or windows, only in straight lines.
Lastly, we include in the wall upholstery tool kit, our plastic spatula. This tool is really handy. Plastic spatula works around delicate moldings. Of course, it will not last as long as the other heavy duty spatulas. Besides, if you need more, you are able to buy some by the piece.
