10 years later; The answer: "JUST TO PISS ME OFF!"Could someone please tell me why the hell they clipped the seat covers on with metal rings!!!
I have been using needle nose plyers to open the rings and channel locks to close them... Its not difficult; just a real PITA... I really should do it in the house (where the AC is) instead of the garage, where its 500 deg...You can buy the tool and rings cheap. Not that hard to do.
Those are called hog rings and they've been using them in automotive upholstery for years. If you have a set of hog ring pliers they are easy to put on and take off.Could someone please tell me why the hell they clipped the seat covers on with metal rings!!!
