There are a few ways to fix a broken spring in a car seat. Unfortunately for a recent customer of mine, using a tennis ball isn’t one of them.
Believe it or not, the guy hired to fix the seat before me had the nerve to stuff a tennis ball under a broken spring and call it repaired. Still, I have to commend him for trying. Not only did he place the tennis ball under the correct broken spring, he spray painted the bottom of the ball black to match.
Of course, we’re filing this photo in our “Funny Upholstery Repairs” section.
