To install the listing wire into the new upholstery, the listing on the new material usually needs to have the ends cut open to receive the listing wire. Again, a careful cut with a razor blade will open the listing end, and you can install the wire. The large U-shaped listing wire for the seatback is the toughest one to install, but patience and strong hands will see it through. If your seats have been recovered and the listing wires are missing, you can make new ones from wire coat hangers--just be sure to loop the ends with pliers so they do not cut through the seat.
