Good Questions: Sectional Duct Tape?

Good Questions: Sectional Duct Tape?

Hello AT,

I just bought several pieces of the West Elm armless sectional (in espresso) so that now i have a L shaped sectional. The problem is that when laying down and shifting positions the pieces often slip apart a bit. Are there any resources to clip the legs together.

I've also thought about using brackets on the underside of the pieces but was hoping not to do anything like that before I checked out other resources. Any ideas?

Thanks, Ann

Dear Ann, high end sectionals all come with systems for holding them together and the smartest kind we've seen is a heavy duty velcro strap that is screwed with a grommeted fastening into the hardwood frame, which then goes through a buckle and returns to stick to itself. By doubling back on itself, you get much more leverage.

If you were doing it yourself, we would use thick velcro sewn back to back on one side and a the end of a cheap belt on the other (the buckle side). You can then Run the velcro through the buckle, double back, cinch it tight and stick it to the other sided velcro. We would also do this in two points for maximum holding power.

Anyone else??
