BEST 16" Medium Duty Stretcher Bars are capable of enduring a staple gun and designed to create a consistent ½” space between the canvas and bar to prevent “ghosting" on the canvas. Additionally, the rounded back provides a natural curved surface to allow for smooth and unobstructed movement of the canvas while tightening. This is a big advantage compared to straight edged stretchers that create too much friction as the canvas is tightened.
