|611-001 Standard Beveled edge Expansion Bolt Stretcher|
|Expansion Bolt Stretcher Profile|
Expansion bolt and keyed stretchers offer an economical and traditional way of re-stretching paintings and textiles. The corners adjust to account for the changes in expansion and contraction of the painting or textile. Crossbars are used when spans exceed 102 cm (40 inches). Basswood is the wood of choice for its even density, smoothness and warp resistance. Heavy-duty stretchers use thicker basswood.
