This is the chair. I’m also including where the plastic steps are held. I’ll be removing the plastic straps and installing 1” nylon straps.

How can I install these straps securely without having to drill additional holes?

I can cut the end of the nylon strap so it fits in the slot, but how do I secure it?

  • rbhat, you're back. We missed you. This is tough one, i am not sure there is a way to use nylon strap with the existing slots. There may be an alternative fastening method to use with nylon strapping, like rivets ? Nice photos.
