Replacing Canvas Leaders

Whether your old canvas leaders have simply become dirty, stretched, or torn… or you are upgrading to Zippered leaders, this helpful video will make the job a snap!

You’ll need a roll of duct tape and a bottle of white elmer’s type general purpose glue.  Plan about an hour for the job.

You can also use a variation on this process for straightening your leaders if the glue has been pulled away and there is ONLY tape holding your leaders.  If the only thing holding them is the tape, they will move under the pressure, and in time they won’t be straight on the bar anymore.   Use the method in the video, but since you won’t have a straight line to follow, use the reflection of the overhead room lights to make a “line” along the bar for you to follow.
