Left unattached, sectionals can create gaps in between each piece because they shift, proving frustrating for adults, possibly dangerous for kids and pets, along with giving your living room a haphazard, unfinished look. Utilize the sofa’s hardware to connect the different pieces into a single unit. If your sofa does not have built-in connectors and accompanying hardware, install independent bottom locking brackets along the underside of each piece or strap the legs of adjoining parts together with cable-ties or specialty sectional sofa straps.
Arrange the pieces in order, leaving a workable gap between each.
Stand before the first two departments. Push them together so the male side of a single side lines up with the female side of the other. Lift up the male side, move it over so that it is raised over and in accord with the female side, and lower the section, locking it in place.
Move to the opposite end of the configuration. Repeat this procedure with the two pieces, lining up the brackets, lifting the male side and locking it into the female side. Moving from 1 end to the other reduces the overall weight that you have to lift; should you continue moving down the sectional in order, lifting becomes increasingly more difficult.
Connect any remaining segments in sets of two and after that connect the entire run together.
Rank the sectional since you need it indexed, leaving a 1-foot gap between each bit.
Crouch down between the first two departments. Feel along the bottom and pull out the brackets on each side. One resembles a two-pronged fork, and the other is one piece of metal. The latter may not swivel out; rather, it may be mended, pointing outwards from under the sectional.
Adjust the first two sections so the brackets align. Starting with the single-prong bracket, push the section toward the fork-style bracket, lifting slightly if indicated from the sectional sofa maker. Push the brackets in place until you hear a clicking sound. Stop when the two pieces ass up against each other. Some versions click once, while others click two to three times until they’re secure.
Repeat this procedure, working your way down the arrangement, till you’ve joined each of the sectional hardware.
Arrange the shoe link platforms on your desirable sectional configuration, butting the edges up firmly against one another. This kind of hardware is especially designed to ensure that one bit connects two or more segments; based upon your setup, you may have one L-shaped piece and one short piece, two or more L-shaped platforms, or a run of platforms that are straight. The shoes may run across the front and rear of the sectional in two long planks or sit as one platform under the furniture.
Lift the first bit of the sectional with the aid of a buddy and place it on top of the stage or planks, lining up the feet of the section together with the holes in the connector.
Repeat this procedure with each section until the entire sectional is linked. This system is common with modular furniture; since you operate, you may have to add armrests or the rear cushion to the platform to construct the sofa while joining it.
