I just got a couple of matching Folke Ohlsson for Dux Lounge chairs. The straps (gray) on one chair definitely need replacing as they've become brittle and would break apart with weight. The other seems to have good straps (white) as I was told the chair was used with plywood and never beard weight. Both chairs have the straps nailed to the frame.
I want to certainly replace the one with brittle straps but not sure if nailing them again is advisable. Looks like the wood is splintering on frame where nails are and nailing again may cause further damage. There are metal latches on which new straps could be hooked onto?
Overall I'm not sure which chair is strapped the correct way, if any and what would be the best way to restrap and ideally the way to strap while keeping original specs.
Thanks in advance.
