    You can hand stitch it back together.
    Use a curved needle (they're pretty big) and some very fine fishing line. Another option is to find a tough polyester thread in the same color as the leather.

    Hi Paul and Jacque (@BGandME),

    In most cases a qualified upholsterer can repair. Unfortunately, there are a limited number of folks participating in this trade (furniture upholstery repair).

    Please contact our Customer Service team if you need further assistance.

    Best regards,
    ~ Janice

    I have that problem also, if you look at where it tears or seems come loose there is a square piece of plywood with sharp edge hitting the seems when you set on your theater chair or couch. It looks to me that if they had rounded the corners on the wood it would fix the problem.

    use dental floss for thread. Dental floss will not wear out as easy and will not get moldy like regular fabric does. Dental Floss is already waxed and will thread and pass thorough the leather seats easier. In the military we use dental floss on guile suits to keep them together while in rough terrain.

    Hi @tc3271,

    Grand Design discovered the issue with the square corner some time ago, and had LCI/Seat Tech begin rounding the edge (similar to your suggestion).

    I have the same thing happening to me on my theater seating and my couch recliner. I'm going to call customer service at GD after the new years and let them know about it but I am in Florida and won't get it fixed till this summer when we get back to Michigan.
