How to Restring a Zero Gravity Chair

Why Do You Need to Restring a Zero Gravity Chair?

There can be many reasons why you may need to restring a zero gravity chair. Such as:

1. Excess Wear and Tear

Over time, your zero gravity chair may begin to show signs of excess wear and tear. This could be due to frequent use or improper care of the chair. So if you do not want to risk losing the functionality of your chair, it is important to restring it as soon as possible.

2. Mismatched Tension

Another common reason why you may need to restring a zero gravity chair is if the tension on the cords is not properly matched. This can occur if one or more of the cords has become loose or stretched, making it difficult to adjust the chair properly.

3. Loose Straps

The straps that connect your body to the chair may start to sag or loosen over time, which can make it difficult for you to get into a comfortable position while sitting in your zero-gravity chair. Restringing the straps will help keep them taut and ensure that you can enjoy a relaxing and comfortable experience every time you use your zero-gravity chair.

If you are experiencing any of these issues with your zero gravity chair, then it is time to restring it and restore its full functionality.

How to Restring a Zero Gravity Chair in 7 Easy Steps

Step 1: Remove the Old Cord From the Bottom of the Chair

Start by removing the old cord from the bottom of your zero-gravity chair. This can typically be done by unscrewing a few screws on the underside of the seat. But you have to make sure you know where the screws are hidden, as they may be difficult to access.

Step 2: Thread the New Cord Through the Holes on Each Side of the Chair

Next, you will need to thread your new cord through each hole on either side of the chair frame. You can typically insert one end of the cord into a hole and pull the other end of the cord through, but be sure to check that the holes are big enough for your cord.

Step 3: Secure the Cord to Each Side of the Chair Frame

Once you have threaded both ends of your new cord through each hole on either side of the chair frame, you will need to secure them in place. You can typically do this by tying knots on either side of the hole, or you may need to use a drill to screw in a small metal bracket.

Step 4: Feed the New Cord Through Your Reclining System

Next, feed your new cord through your reclining system, which is typically located near the top of your chair. You may need to loosen or tighten some screws on this part of the chair in order to feed your cord through it, so be sure to check your owner’s manual for instructions.

Step 5: Tighten the New Cord and Adjust How Far Back Your Chair Lays

Once you have fed your new cord through your reclining system, you can then pull the ends of your cord to tighten it and adjust how far back your chair lays. You may need to make some small adjustments at this point, so be sure to check that the tension on your cord feels right for you.

Step 6: Secure Your Cord in Place

Finally, you will need to secure your cord in place by tying knots or using other methods to hold the ends of your cord in place. This will help to prevent any excess tension that might damage your chair, so be sure to take your time and do this step carefully.

Step 7: Test How Your Chair Reclines

Once you have secured your new cord in place, you can then test how your chair reclines. Do this by sliding into the seat and adjusting how far back you want to lie and making any final adjustments if necessary.

Some Additional Tips And Tricks to Restring a Zero Gravity Chair

1. Check the Hardware on the Chair

Before you begin restringing your zero gravity chair, it is important to check the hardware on the chair and make sure that all of the pieces are secure. This will ensure that the chair is safe to use once it has been restrung.

2. Remove the Old String

3. Measure the New String

Once all of the old string has been removed, you will need to measure out the new string that is long enough to restring your zero gravity chair. Take into account any excess string that you may have when measuring so that your chair can still fully recline.

4. Tie Knots to Secure the String

After you have measured out the string, you will need to tie knots at various points along the length of the string in order to securely restring your chair. You can use a variety of knots or loops depending on what is most comfortable for you, and make sure that there are enough knots to hold the string tightly in place.

5. Tie the Pull Tabs

Once you have completed all of the knots along your string, you will need to tie the pull tabs that are on either side of your chair to the ends of your string. This will ensure that the new string is securely fastened and that it can support your weight as you recline.

6. Test Out Your Restrung Chair

After you have finished restringing your zero gravity chair, it is important to take a moment to test it out and make sure that the new string is supporting you as expected. If there are any issues or uncomfortable spots in the new string, try adjusting the knots or pulling tabs, and make any adjustments as needed until you are fully comfortable.

With these tips, you should be able to restring your zero gravity chair quickly and easily, so that you can enjoy it for many years to come.
