*Thank you very much for the replacement straps for the Evergreen armchair and the Jubilee sofa. I have re-webbed the chair and taking a breather after fitting the side to side straps and the z-shaped straps on the sofa! Your instructions are amazing and made the whole task very simple; in particular to stretch the straps by a centimetre or so at a time. I found that slotting the nylon cord loop into the tread of a trail shoe helped to provide the necessary force when stretching. Much harder with the z straps because the back of the sofa got in the way and the frame is lower at the back.
Altogether an excellent service and I salute you!
Thank you for your rather quick dispatch of my order (230) for 12 off Pirelli slot in straps. I placed my order on 18/06/22020 and took delivery on 20/06/2020. I am very impressed and well satisfied with the items concerned.
So once again thank you.
*To the Skiddaw Team.
A massive thank you for helping up cycling our much loved Ercol Evergreen chair.
Photo attached of the newly fitted webbing provided from yourselves.
Ignore the nail holes as these were how we inherited it.
Incidentally, a tip already mentioned by you is to use copious amounts of fairy liquid this helps enormously.Plus the help of my good lady wife.
Many thanks again for you prompt, helpful and professional service.
Mr and Mrs N
Thank you- my studio couch is like new.
I just want to say thank you.
I recently ordered from you 2 sets of Ercol replacement straps for my Erocl chair and footstool. You were really friendly and helpful on the phone when I called and the straps were delivered in a timely fashion along with all the information I needed to replace them.
It was a great customer experience. Thank you.
I would happily recommend you to anyone who is looking to repair or upgrade their Ercol furniture.
*Hi, I would like to compliment you on your excellent customer service, straps arrived this morning and are now fitted. Product looks good, delivery communication good , but particularly helpful on phone.
I just wanted to say thank you for a great service and product. I ordered 2 sets of Ercoll strap kits to revamp some much loved Ercol 252 chairs and they were perfect - super easy and quick to fit and the chairs are as good as new! Definitely worth the little bit more I paid as it saved me so much time and the tensions were exact!
*Thanks so much for sending our order so promptly. We fitted all the webbing today & our son said it looked like a new suite. To be able to bring life back to much loved furniture that we've owned for 35 years is a miracle. We can't thank you enough.
Regards Roger & Elena Richards & family
*Hi Skiddaw Upholstery
Thank you for sending the Ercol straps so promptly on Monday. Much appreciated. Job done without problem and chairs being returned to owner today.
So I have finally fitted the new straps (with the help of a strong arm!) and I can’t tell you how delighted I am. The diagrams were excellent and the chairs and sofa all look fantastic. Thank you so much for your advice and excellent service.
Just a quick email to thank you very much for the prompt and efficient service.
The straps all arrived this morning, are now fitted and are a perfect fit!
Many thanks for expediting this order so quickly.. We are back home to Cyprus on Wednesday morning, so everything arrived in perfect time
*All done - great success. Bit of fight but got there in the end. Thank you again for your prompt actions.
*Thank you very much for excellent service and product. They are a perfect fit . Job done.
*Thank you for supplying the replacement straps for our chair. The fact that you emailed when you posted the straps and they arrived on time. The directions for replacing the straps were excellent and worked well.
Just a wee note from two very satisfied customers to thank you for the prompt delivery and excellent quality of the two sets of webbing supplied for our Ercol 204 and 204/2 furniture.
Everything fitted perfectly and the very detailed plans and installation guide were a great help.
All the very best,
John and Rosemary Jamieson, Glasgow.
*Many thanks for the kit which arrived today.
Though I am hopeless at DIY I managed to fit the kit with the help of your clear instructions.
The chair now looks great.
Many thanks again.
*Thanks for the straps which arrived with no issues and have now been fitted. My in-laws, both in their 80's, are delighted to be able to use the armchairs in their sun-lounge again without fears of disappearing through the seats.
To be able to order pre cut straps with the Pirelli clips already attached and the straps at the correct tension for the spacing of the slots was a real benefit as I had anticipated having to order the elasticated webbing and clips separately and learn how to fit the clips. Even then, it would have been likely that the tension on each individual strap would have varied, since I would have been tackling the job as a complete amateur.
Brownie points have been earned from my in-laws and I must give you the credit for that!
Many thanks and kind regards
*We have successfully rewebbed our settee. My husband is not going to do this as a full time job! It's quite an effort as you had mentioned in your instructions. For info, we found the handle of a paint roller helpful to stretch the website.
Thanks for your help.
Happy New Year!
Thank you for all your help in working out which straps I needed for my chair - they arrived promptly and fit perfectly.
*Just to say thank you for all your help in identifying webbing needed for my chair. It arrived very promptly and is now installed!
Thank you for making this so straightforward.
Happy New Year
The webbing I ordered arrived during the week and I managed to replace all straps successfully,
though the long side to side straps certainly required a hell of a force to stretch into position!
Was perfect in the end though, so thank you.
*Thanks for sending the webbing so quickly. They arrived this morning and I have fitted them: hard work, but the chair is rejuvenated!
*Thanks for getting these to us so quickly. They have arrived and perfectly (after a bit of a workout getting them installed).
Great service, thank you,
*The Ercol webbing arrived today. Thank you for your help.
Have a good Christmas.
Thank you for the Ercol chair and footstool webbing kits.
Really good and perfect fitting product, great service and excellent "how to fit" video on your website.
All installed in a couple of hours giving our inherited chairs and footstool another lease of life - perhaps another 50 years!
Thanks again and Regards
*Just wanted to say many thanks for sending through the straps - they are perfect and I have managed to fit them successfully.
Your attention do detail in enabling me to identify the chairs is much appreciated.
Can't thank you all enough for such a great service.
Everything arrived safely and the handwritten measurements on each strap were so needed!
Sheila and Graham
I just want to say a big THANK YOU to you.
I have fitted all but one set of straps on my ercol furniture.
You made ordering really easy and it was a pleasure buying from you.
Even when there was a wrong set ordered, you swapped them with no hassle.
I will 100% recommend you and your company to everyone I know.
I will also be ordering another set of straps from you when my bank account allows it hehehe.
Again thanks for everything.
Thank you for the straps.
Excellent fit if rather a struggle fitting them!
Thanks so much for super speedy helpful service. My ercol is re-born!
What you offer is fantastic!
Many thanks Kate
*Thanks for prompt deliver. They fitted perfectly, a job well done. My daughter is immensely pleased that her chair has been restored and repaired. A cushion is on its way. With thanks again. W G Spedding (Rev)
* Thanks for the replacement slot-in webbing for my ancient studio couch, last re-furbished in about 1990 and, as my Mum confirmed, bought in 1956 for my parents' first flat! Definitely a 2 person job to stretch the straps into place, now she is firm again instead of sagging!
Lovely to find a local specialist, now available by internet, to make up the webbing in a skilled way rather than spending hours doing it myself badly... I probably won't need this service again for another 28 years but will recommend you if I see the chance!
* Thank you Alan. The replacement webbing for my old Ercol three seater are in place and great. It was like a "work out" fitting them but they are perfect.
I will order the two seater and chair etc in a weeks time.
Many thanks for your help.
* Thanks for your assistance, have received the kit and fitted it this weekend. The diagrams and fitting tips were much appreciated :)
* Hi, Alan,
I've just finished fitting the contents of the Ercol Replacement Strap kits that you sent me, for an Ercol 477E-1 easy chair, and wanted to thank you for making what I thought was going to be a job for a specialist company, a simple DIY job.
* Hi Alan
I am very sorry but you are correct.
Please accept my apologies.
I as said very impressed with your service and once again am very sorry I was wrong. What a plonker I must be.
Will not hesitate in recommending you and your products in the future and will use your service again for sure.
All the very best

* Hi Alan,
Just wanted to let you know that I received my webbing on Friday and very happy with it - fitted to our 355 couch already and all good.
Many thanks again,
* Just wanted to message to say many thanks for getting the replacement wooden dowels out to me so quickly. The original ones I ordered must have been lost in the post but after contacting you the replacement set arrived the very next day. Many thanks for your great service.
* Many thanks for your help and service, the webbing is now in place and the chairs are like new again.
* Hi Thanks for straps. I’ve now fitted all straps and when sitting in chair its like new (must be 30 years old)
Thanks for your help
* Thank you for your excellent service and your prompt delivery of the webbing
for my ercol day bed. All re webbed now and looking good.
* Hi belated thanks for your prompt and accurate supply.
These chairs my father made in the 60’s have been randomly losing their web support for some 10 years - but the new straps fit perfectly,
the chairs are now starting their next 50 years in style.
* Thank you so much for your extremely efficient, friendly and professional
service sending our replacement straps for a 1960s Ercol chair. And then when
I forgot to ask for the dowels they arrived at no extra cost the following
day. I have already recommended you to friends. Thank you.
* Many thanks indeed for the straps 'can't believe how quickly they arrived!
It was a pleasure doing business with you.
* Good afternoon,
I just wanted to say thank you very much for sending the webbing out so quickly.
Also, thank you for sending the instructions and diagram too, I am looking forward to cracking on with the project tonight!.
* Just a quick word to say i have fitted new straps on my ercol chair today
that i ordered from you and it is like sitting on a new piece of furniture !,
great product, many thanks
* Sorry for the belated thanks for the order I placed on 3rd January 2018 -
invoice 2186. The replacement straps were perfect. I will be placing an order
shortly to replace the webbing in our other Ercol 2 seater settee.
* Fitted the new straps to my Ercol Jubilee two-seater sofa yesterday.
Excellent product enabled us to do a first-rate job. Good service every step of the way - thank you.
E R Harvey
Thanks for your email.
Received safely and fitted to the chair already.
Many thanks for helping make our chair like new!
Have a great Christmas
* Pleased to say the package arrived yesterday morning and we have now completed the fitting of the new webbings.
The three pieces of furniture are now back like new.
Many thanks for your quick completion of the order.
* Hi Alan,
Webbing has arrived and now all fitted, many thanks for your help and fitting instructions.
Just a quick note to say that the kit you supplied was simply brilliant. The instructions were really helpful and we easily removed the old webbing and fitted the new ones. The difference it made was amazing - it’s like a new sofa. We could not have been more happy with the service and product and it was especially kind of you to include the four extra dowels.
Thank you for everything.
George and Kate Burrows
* Dear Alan
We were delighted to receive your webbing kit which was so well marked up and easy to fit.
Although we realise having an Ercol sofa sprayed in another colour may not be to your taste, I still wanted to share the wonderful result which certainly has made us very happy.
Just to say how helpful you were when I telephoned! The straps arrived and are fitted perfectly! Chairs have a new lease of life!!
Must just say a big thank you to Alan for being very patient and understanding when I put through my order!! People are very quick to complain but this time I must commend you for excellent service!
I won't hesitate to recommend your company!
* Just to say a Big Thank you for sending the webbing straps so quickly
Thanks very much for the help and excellent service.
The fitting diagram enclosed with the order and the writing of the length on each strap was a great help, as were the fitting instructions. Washing up liquid was the key to quickly and easily fitting the Pirelli webbing.
* Brilliant service and the strapping fits perfectly
Many Thanks Derek
* Hi Alan,
Confirm safe receipt of this order...thanks also for the string fitting tip...far quicker & easier than using the Ercol tool.
All fitted in less than 30 minutes.
Super quick service. Thanks again.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for your quick and efficient service. Kit arrived this morning and DayBed is rewebbed!
* Ercol straps arrived yesterday. All fitted and settee fully functional again.
* Dear Alan
Delivered yesterday. Really great product and excellent service. I am getting the knack of fitting the straps. Stool and chair done on 45 minutes; need to recover my grip and will tackle the settee tomorrow.
* Hi Alan, just fitted the straps to our Ercol chairs. Instructions worked a treat. Many thanks for extending the life of the chairs.
* Hi Alan,
Thank you very much for your prompt delivery and for the extra dowels you put in to the order.
I have fitted the webbing and the straps are perfect. I will definantly be ordering more in the near future.
* Hi Alan, my straps arrived yesterday and were fitted last night. Excellent
service and simple instructions. Thank you. Mary Johnshaven
* Just to say thank you - the straps have arrived and have fitted them already!
What a great piece of design - so easy to do!
* Hello Alan, the new straps arrived today and me and my wife have just fitted them. They are great and we both have one arm longer and stronger than the other now. Many thanks for the prompt and excellent service.
* I just wanted to say what I meant to say in the order note - thanks for your patience and expertise in helping me identify the correct ercol model.
* Dear Skiddaw,
Many Thanks for rapid delivery of your excellent product.
Were fitted "after a fight" yesterday evening. Got easier with familiarity!
I found lubricating with Cussons liquid hand wash very good: possibly because of fat content?
The spring steel tool which came from Ercol some years back with a strap kit is a bit of a beast. Ercol's last kit was not a patch on the assembly quality of yours, their fixing pops were all over the place, many possibly too near the edge of the strap.
I may have to start saving for a 3-seater 'Old Colonial' settee kit.
* Hi. Got my new webbing yesterday and fitted it that night. Great quality and I now can sit on my daybed again. Thanks for a great service. Kerry
* Thank you for the quick, efficient delivery of our webbing order.
The instructions were clear and with a bit of brute-force cooperation (as you warned) it fitted perfectly.
Many thanks, and this should give our Ercol chair many more years of use.
We wholeheartedly recommend your webbing kits.
David and Susan Jones
* The straps I ordered on Friday 24th March (Invoice 555) arrived on Saturday.
Thank you very much for the prompt sending. They fit beautifully.
* Than you for the straps, they fit very well and are beautifully made. We are delighted.
* Brilliant service Alan
All straps received yesterday and fitted last night. Quite a good cardio workout !
* Thank you for the new webbing which arrived on Friday. Which is now installed along with the new cushions. Very pleased looks lovely as well as now usable.
* Hi Alan,
Order received very quickly and now fitted. Easy peasy,
Just to let you know how impressed I have been with your service.
The parcel arrived a day ahead of schedule. One chair down – three to go. Quite a struggle even with two of us, but very pleased with the result. The old webs were marked very similarly to yours. I bought the suite in Dorset from eBay so no idea of its history.
* Dear Alan,
Thank you for supplying my new Ercol webbing so efficiently. Your clear
instructions and labelling made it straight forward for me to do the job
myself. Also the way you have the website set up enabled me to easily
identify which suite I had. I now have a lovely suite which is as good as
new, and I am proud to say I did it myself - thanks to you!
Fiona Bolton ( Australia)
* Kit arrived on Tuesday
Fitted on Wednesday
All good – thank you!
Best regards, Iain Macdonald
* Fitted with moderate huffing and puffing by teatime yesterday. Your string tip saved a lot of time and effort Arrived lunchtime Wednesday.
Thanks for a swift response
* Thank you for the brilliant service. Last time we did our chairs, webs
ordered via a local Ercol stockist took 10 weeks to arrive from Ercol. This
time for our sofa, we placed the order on a Saturday evening, received the
webs the following Tuesday and fitted them on Thursday - over 9 weeks
Roy & Liz Dobb
* Thanks for prompt delivery.
Webbing kit arrived this afternoon and fitted this evening in around 15-20 minutes.
We are really pleased with result as we now have an easy chair we can use without falling through.
* Just received my chair straps and have already fitted them to the chair. Brilliant. Thank you for your excellent service and a really good product.
* Dear Alan
The webbing for our 1960's daybed arrived yesterday - a very quick delivery to Australia. My husband and son fitted the webs this morning in about an hour, with a bit of elbow grease, which has given the daybed a new lease of life. It's very comfortable to sit on now.
Many thanks for your excellent service.
* Thank you very much for an extremely prompt and efficient service - the parcel arrived this morning, less than 72 hours after we ordered it.
Just a quick note to say thank you for ensuring that I received the straps for my 203,2-5 in time for Christmas. You said it would be 100 times better, and it is!
Wishing you a Happy Christmas and New Year.
* I’m just writing to say a big thank you for the very fast processing of my order. I replaced the strapping on an Ercol armchair today and Santa now has a seat to sit on!
* Thank you so much for getting this order to me so quickly, it has just arrived.
This means I’m now on track for Christmas; you certainly have a loyal customer from now on and I will recommend you to anyone I know who is into upholstery.
A very happy Christmas and all the best for 2017,
* Thanks for your speedy delivery of my order for Ercol webbing straps. All installed,helped by your excellent diagrams and instructions.
Regards. Ian Huggins
* Thank you so much for your fast delivery service. I can now sit in my favorite chair by the log fire this Christmas Day. No more going through the webbing!!!!
Annette & Mike
Just to let you know that the order arrived on Friday and that the straps fit perfectly.
Thanks very much.
* The straps were received on 15th Nov. and fitted the same day: The studio couch is as good as new; not bad for a piece of furniture purchased around 1960.
* Hi Received the order and have done the chairs - brilliant job, like a new suite.
Patsy and Ian P
* Morning Mr Skiddaw!
Sorry, I didn't ask your name the other day when we spoke
I just wanted to get in touch to say a huge THANK YOU for the excellent service that you provide. Your website was useful and informative. The webbing was perfect for all of the pieces that I ordered and the instructions were really clear and helpful. And when we had a chat you were very friendly too! I know you are working very hard so I just wanted to let you know that what you are doing has helped me out amazingly. A job that usually takes me the best part of the day was done in such a short time, with the help of my husband - the brawn behind my brains!!
Anyway, I'll be in touch again when I get my next Ercol re-webbing order and in the meantime, don't go working too hard.
Enjoy your weekend

* Hi Alan,
Straps fitted fine. Thanks for such a prompt service. We now have new life in our Ercol furniture!
Straps arrived safe and sound, much appreciated.
Fitted in a morning - a character building task! Day bed now transformed and rejuvenated. Thank you for your excellent service.
* Thank you very much for your prompt service, everything has fitted fine, all done, thanks Ralph
* Hi, received my order this morning and have fitted the webbing into our 60's Guy Roger sofa. Completely delighted with the product and the service.
* Hello there
Thank you for the order.
Your whole service - information on your site, communication, promptness of delivery and the quality of the product – is excellent.
I’m really enjoying sitting on my buoyant chairs instead of gingerly sinking towards the floor.
Thank you Alan.
* Dear Sir,
Thank you so much for your amazing service. Our webbing (ordered on Tues) arrived first thing this morning (Thurs) & we (excitedly) fitted it immediately. We have slightly sore hands now but are over the moon with it. Thanks so much for the diagrams & instructions - so helpful & kind. You were right - the cushions do get a new lease of life with new webbing! It looks great in our kitchen - we just need some new loose covers now. We're going keep an eye out for another vintage suite for our living room so hope to be ordering from you again soon.
Thanks so much, best wishes,
* Received my order this morning. Thank you very much for a speedy and
efficient service much appreciated .
Just finished the first of my many of Easter DIY jobs.
The webbing now all fitted and the instructions were very helpful, in ensuring the webs were fitted in the correct place.
Thanks for your help.
* Dear Sir
Many thanks for your prompt attention to my order.
I have received it and have now completed fitting the straps to our chair and settee,
a little bit of elbow grease and some fairy liquid and everything was fine.
Thank you once again and we wish your company every success now and in the future.
* Thank you for the excellent service. The webbing arrived on Thursday and My wife and I fitted it this morning. It all went without a hitch. If this webbing lasts as long as the original (30+ years) we’ll not have to do them again in our lifetime.
* Dear Alan
Straps arrived this morning.
Fitted one set - absolutely brilliant.
* Dear Skiddaw Upholstery Supplies,
Just a note to thank you for dealing with my order for new webbing for my Ercol chair so quickly and efficiently.

Yours sincerely, Mrs. J. Haynes.
* Dear Sir,
Thank you for my order which I received and job now done. Your excellent, prompt and efficient service is very much appreciated and I will have no hesitation in highly recommending your service to anyone.
Mr. Mel ASKEW
