Hello Bobcat,
The problem I have is joining the two tabs at the base of the middle section where the mattress has the 'cut-out' section. The gap between the tabs is about 40 cm and you only have the hook to join them together. As I show in the photograph, the end pokes up in the air because the tension is so great.

Hi Alan,

I ordered x2 sets from the forum shop so have used the longer elastic hooks from the second set and as say the tension is to great and pulls the bottom part of the mattress out of shape.
I have also advised the shop who are awaiting advice from Brandrup.

Thank you Will. I have realised the same as you. Will get in touch with Brandrup tomorrow.

Hello Bobcat,
Thanks for your photographs. It seems that the side tabs on our sheet are not as near the bottom as yours. I'll contact Brandrup tomorrow and see what they have to say.

Be interesting to know what that say please Alan.

Hello Will,
The retailer has confirmed that Brandrup say that the loops are in the right position but the incorrect straps were supplied. I have been provided with two of the 10cm straps which sort the problem out.

Great news Alan,

Have advised the shop of your outcome so should get similar. Thanks.

re smaller table i took mine to a joinery works and asked them to cut it down to my dims, they did and is easy to get around now. They must have what is called a banding machine for the-edging. Cost £70. Well worth it.

What are the dimensions of your cut-down table? Is there a photo?
I've got diesel for heating and only want to use Calor 6kg bottles. Do I just need to change the gas bottle floor holders?
Hope you get satisfaction with the straps.

Hi Alan,
re 6kg gas bottles should be just a case of moving the holders well maybe just x2 of them.

The table its important to leave the existing leg in place otherwise it would be difficult to swing your legs under. So dims are width the same 21.25” and length 40” including the end rail bracket.

No worries Alan.

The table is just long and wide enough still for 4 people without being overly large. If there’s are just the 2 of you a slightly narrower table might suffice.
