When you are looking for replacement vinyls for your tack trunks, we have a standard package that includes the front and two sides. This is purely a Do It Yourself (DIY) project to save you time and expense (no need to send trunk back to manufacturer) as we have the standard templates to refurbish both Phoenix West or Warners Tack Trunks. If you need to replace the top or have to replace vinyls for custom trunks such as McGuinn, there are additional fees.
At Tack Trunks, our standard replacements come with chrome or brass molding strips that you can apply and are designed to fit the following trunk sizes:
- Small – 32-inch length x 18-inch width x 18-inch height, weighing 60 lbs
- Medium – 34-inch length x 20.75-inch width x 19.5-inch height, weighing 70 lbs
- Large – 38.5-inch length x 23.75-inch width x 22.25-inch height, weighing 78 lbs
If you are matching your barn or stall color, adding a personalized logo or making a selection from among the hundreds of stock art options, you have the ability to customize your choices. We have an array of options when it comes to lettering from choosing your own fonts to the different lettering styles. Encircled monograms, lettering or style may be combined with such design elements as a piped border. Standard colors are available, or you may also select from over 70 colors of Sunbrella Marine Canvas, an extremely durable fabric backed by a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty against fading. This is a material that provides a sleek, wrinkle-free appearance.
Replacing Your Vinyls Yourself is an Easy Process
When replacing a single panel, you only want to remove the molding from that side of the tack trunk. Once the vertical corner molding is removed, you must cut the horizontal molding at the corners using a pair of tin snips or metal cutters. Next, the two ¾-inch horizontal strips next to the top and bottom wood bumpers must be removed. If you are removing the side panels, be sure to remove the handles. Finally, there are securing staples that need to be removed before you can peel off the vinyl trunk panels.
New panels are attached with the wood backing one at a time, face up. In other words, your graphic needs to be parallel to the ground for proper orientation. You will have four small banding nails to secure these panels. These are for the purpose of holding your panel in proper position while you attach the molding. Next, attach the ¾-inch horizontal molding using the provided banding nails on all three sides, if needed. What follows is the 90-degree vertical corner molding, again, using the ¾-inch nails included.
You want to attach the handles you removed from the end panels first by drilling the three pilot holes as they are positioned on the handles using a ¼-inch drill bit. You are going to hammer the included 10/32 T-Nuts into the pilot holes. This is completed by screwing on the handles from the outside using the provided 10/32 x 1¼-inch flat-head machine screws. It is important not to over tighten these screws.
