Non damaging way of getting a fixing on a lining
I posted this last year but it has proved very popular and I keep referring people to it so here it is again:
Nearly every time you use a marquee lining it will be to go in your standard marquee stock and (if it’s one of ours!) will fit perfectly. Easy.
But sometimes you have to fit a lining somewhere unusual. It might be lining a customers porch, it might be lining an unusual walkway or just making good to a house. At some time in your marquee hiring life you will need to do this.
So how do you get attachments in a lining without damaging it? Follow these instructions:
- Step 1: Find a decent sized pebble (about 4cm diameter ideally) and place it on the good face of the lining (ie the side you don’t need to get a fixing)
- Step 2: Scrunch the material round the pebble at the back of the lining
- Step3: Tie a cable tie tightly around the scrunched material and also include an extra cable tie (this gives you your fixing).
And there you have it, a fixing in the middle of a lining that looks okay from the front (you can’t see the pebble) and gives you a fixing at the back without damaging the lining.
