I have rebuilt my chaise lounge frame. I am now ready to re-install the cushion supports. They consist of a slim steel strap attached at both ends with a spring. One end attaches to the strap, and the other to a bolt attached to the side of the frame. I have nothing that I can stretch the springs about 1-1/2" And I'm no longer strong enough to pull them by hand. Your help sure would be welcome. The spring is about 1-1/4" long and approx' 1/2" in diameter.
