Welcome to dickblick
Best Heavy Duty Stretcher Bars are made of strong, kiln-dried, knot-free pine sourced from Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) certified suppliers.
The stretcher bars have a 1-1/2" profile and are 2" wide. Each bar's profile has a slightly rounded edge with a 1/2" rise. This prevents sagging and helps eliminate ghost impressions on your final stretched canvas.
Note — Price is per strip, not pair.

Great Stretcher Bars
from Santa Cruz
Comments about Best Heavy Duty Stretcher Bars:
Great stretcher bars! Very strong. One comment, I would design a way to fit the cross braces into the wood itself. Cut a groove. Also there needs to be more cross brace sizes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Maybe once more
By mr johns
from salt lake utah
I don't know if I will buy these online again. The problem is that three of the four corners were able reach right angles while being flush, but the fourth bar/fourth corner was impossible to square and have flush. The result is a corner that is maybe 1/4-1/8" separated. If I use the bars and stretch my own canvas, then it's likely that anyone who stretches with keys will rip the canvas.My other complaint is that the wood shed or splintered easily. The fit is tight, but even using the utmost care and the lightest possible taps, the wood still splintered on the edge. Pros- Thick sturdy wood. Mostly smooth, but needed a fine sanding. came in a good box, well packaged. Cheap cost.Cons- Wood splinters easily, not very good fit between bars. It's hard to see if they will square properly from buying online. No keys, but not really a big issue.So, I don't know if I'd ever give these another chance. They may be cheap, but it looks like bent bars and wrongly fitting bars are common enough I might just buy from a local supplier instead (maybe even the local blick store).
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Commercial quality - Great Pricing

I own a print shop and used these on 7 large canvas prints for a new restaurant. The wood was straight and all the corners fit snug. For the larger ones I used the cross members. The plastic bracket mounts work great. I used all brands of stretcher bars in the past, but now I will only use these. Highly recommended for the price and quality.

I love using these stretcher bars! They are super sturdy and make for a great appearance with the finished stretched canvas. They're also FSC certified.

My fav stretcher bars EVER
By De north art
These are the best stretcher bars I have found on the market for the price. They always arrive fast, never chipped, assemble straight, and have never warped to date.
Usually excellent,solid stretcher bars.
Great product. Much better than the less expensive competing products out there from other manufacturers. Unfortunately one of the stretcher bars arrived slightly warped... a little frustrating to have to ask for a replacement, but otherwise good.

Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that one of the bars you received was warped, and we're happy to take care of this for you. One of our Customer Care Agents will be reaching out via email to offer further assistance.
The stretcher bars were what we needed to stretch a fabric print. The materials were clearly explained online and to confirm, for my peace of mind, I called customer service and the helpful consultant further explained our product's details and affirmed the size needed. Packing was incredible and the four wooden frame pieces (48 x 50 ) arrived in perfect condition.
I will definitely be buying more for my future projects!!
from Morgantown, WV
These stretcher bars are GREAT quality! I bought enough for 3 paintings and they were easy to put together make for a super sturdy canvas!! The price is great too! I bought enough for ONE canvas from another site and it cost me $55... I bought enough for THREE here for $75. That is an awesome deal!
