My Lane recliner was purchased in 1994. The handle on my recliner just came out of the hole. There is a plastic round piece then the handle goes into the hole. Does anyone know of any way I can fix this? Thanks.

Try calling Lane. We recently did on our 2 recliners that have separate foot stools. All of the parts that were needed were supplied at no charge. They gave us the name of a repair person in our area who came and repaired them like new. We had to pay for his labor but to me it was a lot cheaper than having to replace both recliners.

I repaired a recliner chair. Now I cannot stretch the springs to fit. Is there a way to do this at home?

Repairing a Recliner

Not knowing the exact physical obstacles involved with the chair frame and spring attachment; you'll have to understand the basics of "spring tools". It usually consists of a steel rod with a configuration at one end to rest securely on the piece to which the spring is to be attached. You insert the rod through the spring-hook and the other end to the "piece". Raise the rod to stretch the spring [carefully making sure the rod end does not slip off of the piece] toward the spring-connector. This is not a "fun" task; the rod can slip off of the piece.


Attached is a link to spring tools for automotive brakes, just to help with the explanation. Hope this is not too confusing? (03/30/2010)
