The RH Trekker, the original was developed by Professor Winfried Heiber as a tensioning aid to draw the two edges of a gaping tear together and enable the completion of a thread-by-thread tear mending treatment.

This tool allows the torn edges to be brought closer together while the stretched canvas remains on its auxiliary support. 

With the sad passing of Prof. Heiber the tool he supplied was no longer available, so RH developed our design. It differs slightly to improve ease of use and offer a couple of extra tensioning threads.
