How to apply Pirelli Webbing

Applying Pirelli Using WEBBING CLIPS

Measure from slot to slot in your frame (from the outside edges of the slot) and subtract 15mm. Cut Pirelli Webbing at this measurement & attach webbing clips by hammering webbing clip closed over the end of webbing, or close with pliers or vice.

Alternatively attach webbing clip onto Pirelli Webbing as above. Secure this webbing clip in back slot by tapping it in with a hammer, pull the Pirelli Webbing as hard as you can, & mark on the Pirelli Webbing where it meets the outside edge of front slot, subtract 15mm & cut, attaching clip as before. Insert this clip into front slot. If it can be made tighter, shorten the Pirelli Webbing by prizing the clip apart & cutting off a very tiny amount refastening & rechecking again if you could tighten more by repeating the same procedure. The aim is to get the Pirelli Webbing as tight as you possibly can.

Fastening Pirelli Webbing with STAPLES:

Staple or tack one end of webbing onto rail at least 2cm in from the edge (use at least 6 staples or 15mm tacks). Pull Pirelli Webbing as hard as you possibly can & staple or tack onto the other side of frame (again another 6 staples of 15mm tacks).

Note 1: Webbing clips have a lip on one side, & the lip must go on the inside edge of the slot so that it goes between the timber & Pirelli Webbing & protects the Webbing from rubbing against the timber.

Note 2: Ensure that timber frame is sturdy & not wobbly at all. Pirelli Webbing is strong enough to pull the frame apart when sat on if the frame is in a weakened condition.
