Tying seat springs together

Someone asked me recently how to connect the springs together on a truck's bench seat. Here is the stake wire, BW (border wire) clips, and BW pliers used to do the job. This frame is for a recliner seat, but the process is exactly the same in a truck or car seat. One long piece of stake wire with one clip for each spring. You can do this with a regular pliers, the BW pliers just makes it go faster.

It is simple. The purpose of the tie wire is to let the springs act as one unit and not spread apart when they are sat on.
