  10. Slide the bar stock (weight from old batten) with the friction strip facing away from the material into the slot in the batten underneath the fabric. Bar stock must be centered

  11. Clamp together the batten with a pair of duck bill vise grips or channel lock pliers with several layers of tape on the jaws so as not to scratch the batten. Make sure it is lined up straight. You can count the welded patterns to help in the process
