Recliner Handle Replacement How To Tutorials

Remove the broken recliner handle by unscrewing the two fixing screws behind the latch using either a manual or electric screwdriver and pull the handle clear of the furniture.


Rotate the handle to locate the retaining clip. Remove the clip by pinching the arms together and unhook the cable from the handle.
Pull the cable sheath clear to allow slack and check around the cable and barrel for any wear, tear or damage.
Secure the original cable into the replacement handle and refit the retaining clip.
Fit the handle and cable back in to the furniture. Pull the handle (the mechanism will open the footrest) to expose the fixing holes and securely fit the screws into both holes.

    Before I found this web site I didn’t even know you could get replacement parts for sofas. I found the website easy to navigate and, once I’d placed the order, the item (large oval handle) was dispatched promptly. The handle I ordered fitted perfectly and, being steel, should last a long while. Overall, a very positive experience – and if I break something else I know where to come.

I've worked in a furniture store for 9 or so years and finding suitable recliner cables was always a challenge. When I recieved my cables off you guys, I couldn't believe how well they fitted. Absolutely magnificent place to get your cables. They were here in a couple of days as well so highly recommended.

Another company quoted $1000 to fix this, I fixed my couch under $200 from Sofa Rehab!! The couch had tears and the leather was also quite worn on one of the seats. With instruction through their videos and also other ones on Youtube it ended up being easier than expected.
