I’ve noticed that lots of rug hookers have a connection to guys that like to do woodworking. We get lots of requests to purchase gripper strip for frames the guys make. Although we also make and sell frames, we are delighted to ship gripper strips to be used on homemade frames.
Here in the shop we use a power nailer to attach the gripper to the frame. I think most guys have figured out how to attach the stripping to suit their needs. We find that putting the gripper strip over a slightly rounded edge opens up the stripping and make it work better than strips that are placed on a flat surface.
We sell strips in any length up to 40″ long. We also custom cut to the size you need if you want us to make customized strips for you. the 40′ Strip sells for $28.95 on our web page listed under the frames section at www.aults.com . To order custom sizes and prices, please call us toll free at 866-659-1752. This number rings on my cell phone so if we are within the range of a cell tower you can call us. If you don’t get an answer please leave a message & I will call you back.
