Step 6 Install Bottom Three Spreader bars
There are three spreader bars that are attached to the bottom half of the chaise frame. The aluminum spreader tool must be used to install the remaining spreader bars. Attach one end of all the spreader bars to the chaise bottom, using the existing screws. Tighten the screw about half way. If needed, use a metal pick to find the hole in the frame and puncture through the fabric.
There is a slit in between a pair of spreader bars in the middle of the frame. Insert the aluminum spreader tool into the slit in the fabric. Apply downward pressure to the handle. Spread the rails just enough to allow room for the screw to be inserted into the hole in the frame. Use this technique to install both spreader bars near the slit.
The last spreader bar is attached near the top of the chaise back frame. Place the aluminum spreader tool on the frame, as close as possible to the screw hole. When in position, spread the rails and attach the final screw to the final spreader bar. Once all spreader bars have been attached, tighten all screws and nuts along the chaise rails.
