Welcome to dickblick
With Masterpiece Monet Pro Stretcher Bar Kits, artists can easily build their own cross-braced stretcher bar frames.
Each kit includes two bars and one cross brace (two kits are required to create a full frame). These braces help keep the stretcher bars supported and straight, and help prevent the canvas from loosening over time. The braces are keyable and keys are included, so you can always keep your tension adjusted to perfection.
Masterpiece Monet Pro Stretcher Bars are made of fine, American-grown solid wood with no finger joints. They are 1-7/16" deep for an impressive, gallery-quality presentation and provide ½" of canvas relief.
Assembly instructions are included on the label.

First purchase of a Stretcher Bar.
from Tarpon Springs, FL
This was my first purchase of a stretcher bar and using it for mounting a canvas painting. It was a little hard trying to figure out how to put it together but when I did figure it out it went together well. I would recommend that the instructions should be written better maybe with a few pictures. My project worked out well, however, I was quite surprised that the painting I purchases was not large enough to wrap around the stretcher. This is not the fault of the stretcher but a beginner like me should be advised to measure the canvas before ordering the stretcher bar. If the canvas was about 2 more inches wider and higher, it would have been perfect. I stapled the canvas on the sides of the stretcher and everything worked out anyway.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

GREAT PRICE - GREAT FRAME!!!!
By Paint On
Once you figure out how to put the cross braces in (put the little triangular pieces in the groove on the frame -they are slanted so they need to face the proper direction) slide the X shaped brace in place and tighten it by the way the brace and little pieces are sloped, it's a dream. I glued everything in place. I made a very large canvas and it is holding up spectacularly!!!! Great product at a great price!!!
Impressed with quality, would buy again
This was the first time I'd purchased this particular product. I was very impressed with the quality and will definitely buy it again.
I would definitely buy again!
from Honolulu, Hawaii
Great product! I was able to beautifully stretch my large painting with these gallery wrapped stretcher bars. It comes with a cross brace, so I know the large squared frame will stay put. It was very easy to assemble too.

New favorite Strecher bars
from Santa Fe,NM
No need to buy cross braces - comes with the bars. Makes a really proffesional looking canvas. I have tried all the others available and for the price these are the best.

A Better Stretcher
from Santa Fe, NM
American wood produced in Tijuana. Follow the Instructions. Glue the cross pieces together and pay attention that screw holes are offset 180 deg. For glue I use TiteBond 2 from any hardware store. I do not recommend you use a polyurethane type glue that will expand and drip.Let glue dry. Overnight if you can.Assemble stretcher bars face down on the table - use a rubber mallet to assemble. Square - the outside diagonals have to be equal.Be sure you check that you maintain the "square oof the canvas before you start stapling.

By A really OLD painter
from San Diego, CA
Complete package. Middleweight between Heavy Duty abd Regular. A bit sketchy on drillings for screws, but easily corrected. Makes a very professional package that galleries love to present to customers.
easy to assemble once you know
The first time I ordered these I couldn't figure them out. Then I did and see how very easy these are to assemble. I wish they included the divot thingies for both sides of each stretcher end instead of only one, but they seem to stay put. Personally, I would not trust a large canvas to this though, without gluing each divot in place....and probably not even then. I don't like that the whole back support relies entitely on the divots to keep thecross bars in place. But for the occasional odd sized canvas, these are useful.
