Upholstery detailed description
Wall upholstery toolkit
In the Deluxe series of wall upholstery toolkit, we have 5 hand tools. You will use them at different stages of the installation. These hard to find specialty hand tools have stainless steel blades but also, have excellent rubber handles.
Let us take a closer look at our wall upholstery toolkit.
To begin with, we have the straight spatula. It has a 2″ by 4″ flat blade with a 5-inch handle. 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 compared to the one described above has a bent blade. It facilitate tacking in hard place. A useful tool for working close to a ceiling and floor.
Next, there is a rocker which has an 11″ 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 very fine sandpaper. Always use caution with thin fabric.
Speed roller provides quick and steady insertion of the fabric in the straight line. A very short video of the hand tool is available. 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 toolkit, our plastic spatula. The plastic spatula works by 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.
