I repaired a recliner chair. Now I cannot stretch the springs to fit. Is there a way to do this at home?

Not knowing the exact physical obstacles involved with the chair frame and spring attachment; you'll have to understand the basics of "spring tools". It usually consists of a steel rod with a configuration at one end to rest securely on the piece to which the spring is to be attached.
Attached is a link to spring tools for automotive brakes, just to help with the explanation. Hope this is not too confusing?mytoolstore.com (03/30/2010)
