Repairing a Folding Lawn Chair?

The chair is either thin steel or aluminum. The webbing is OK, but rivets are broken. Is it worth trying to repair? If so what is easiest way to remove rivets? Instead of new rivets are bolts recommended?

If this is an aluminum lawn chair with plastic webbing, it is NOT worth trying to repair. It is very, very old, and new, much better chairs, can be purchased new for about $10. If you search at yard sales, etc, you can likely get one for less. Just toss this old one.

I beg to differ. I have old aluminum chairs that are very lightweight and hard to find. My mother-in-law who is thrifty has similar chairs replaces the webbing and has owned her chairs for 50 years.


The new chairs look the same but are not aluminum and are very very heavy. For my money it's much better to replace the webbing. Repair, replace, re-purpose and save the planet.
