Manual Recliner Mechanism

Our manual recliners are simple and easy to operate. A gentle pull on the clip releases the footplate to elevate your feet into a comfortable position. You can gently push back on the arms of the chair to further recline the back rest to a near horizontal position. If all you need is the simplicity of a recliner chair, without any complicated remotes or electronic set-up, this is the best mechanism for you and it can be fitted into any chair or sofa style depending on your requirements.

Made to Order

We have a range of products that are available as ‘Made to Order’ alternatives to our In Stock range. Our Made to Order riser recliner chairs and motion furniture come at a slightly higher price point and will have a longer lead time of at least six weeks. So, if you’re hoping to get something a little more tailored to you, you can reach out to your dealer after taking the following four steps:

  1. Choose your style of chair / sofa
  2. Choose a mechanism or keep it fixed
  3. Decide on the fabric upholstery
  4. Pick your ideal chair back
