    The reason they are jointed is because they should not be fixed or underpinned at the corners. Once the canvas is stretched and fitted Stretcher bars have slots so you insert triangle wedges to further tighten the print. Also after a period of time the canvas can be tightened again if it has gone loose. Just check out the internet.
