Adjustoform broken (sob) - Update
« on: December 29, 2017, 11:47:22 AM »
I was about to embark on re-padding my dress form and have realised that one of the adjusters has broken - the bracket that holds it in place has snapped.
 I`ve email Adjustoform but they are out of the office until next week.I`ve had it less than 3 years so I really don`t want to have to replace it yet.  I can`t see how the bracket could be replaced as it is very difficult to get to.  I bought it online and don`t have a local supplier I could take it to.
I`m not happy

Oh no, and they are not cheap to replace! Let's hope you can replace the bit that's broken.

Husband has now looked at it and reckons that if we can get them to supply a new adjuster we (he) should be able to fit it - would have to cut into a bit of the cover to get at the screws that hold it in place but I can live with that.

They are back at work on Tuesday so I shall have to be patient until then

Adjustoform replied to me - their minimum charge for spares is £12 inc. p&p and for that they have supplied 3 pairs of the white bracket things (I only actually need one) plus an instruction sheet showing how to fit them.

I think it`ll be a bit of a fiddly job but hopefully husband and I will be able to manage it between us

p.s. I suppose this is one good reason for dealing with a company who manufactures in the UK - don`t think I would have got the same service from some International companies

I think you've been unlucky SJ.  I don't know what make mine is, Helena is the model, but she's been carted round and generally poorly treated for the last 20 odd years, and is still intact.

Fingers crossed your OH can sort it out.
