    Default Replacing old zig zap clips

    Hi all,

    I'm currently fixing a 60's sofa by Wycombe Indsustries before taking it to get upholstered.

    Looking to get some advice on the best option to replace the old clips holding the zig zag springs.. (See attached photo for reference)

    95769518_3086512241392111_1448611410023022592_n.jpgWould the EK clips I've seen around be suitable? My only worry is that the springs will then sit higher up than originally intended and possibly ruin the look once the cushions go on.

    Appreciate any advice!

    Cheers

    Hi Toby,

    I'm not a fan of these and if used I joint them in or make my own attachment assembly for them. Your idea sounds fine too! Good Luck!

    Those clips are clearly in House manufacture, EK clips are designed for use with no sag springs once fixed just bend them down to suit

    Yeah I was thinking I could possibly make my own but I'll probably end up just giving the EK clips a go! Are the springs pictured not no sag springs China?
