There seems to be easy way to repair a broken spring. There are a few "cylindrical crimps" that appear to be used to connect sections of long springs together in the recliner sofa I have. I think its a Berkley.
With a special tool that grabs the two spring ends, this tool can crimp the part over the two spring halves to connect them permanently. We have tried to get a hold of these and folks are not being cooperative.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
