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.

    So thrilled when I discovered this site. Couldn’t find anyone locally who could supply parts. The new handle arrived promptly but was too big! I was able to return the goods and exchange for the correct size. The website tips were incredibly helpful for measuring and assembling. Thank you sofarehab!!

I could not be happier! I thought that my couch was beyond saving but now it looks great. So easy to use, I wish I had done it much sooner.

Sofa Rehab

Needed transformer for our Plush sofa (Plush couldn't supply one for 3 weeks!) left a message with Sofa Rehab and was contacted that day, very helpful. Transformer arrived a day later; very happy as sofa now working fine and impressed with service, delivery and advice.

Sofa Rehab

Great service. Very happy with my phone call being returned promptly. Within a few minutes of the parcel being delivered, the transformer was plugged in and everything worked perfectly. Many thanks.

Sofa Rehab

Excellent service with very fast delivery. The Latch and cable kits was super easy to change over. Your cable selection chart was very helpfull. I changed all 4 latch and cables in 10 minutes. Thank you!!

Sofa Rehab

I was doubtful this would repair our badly damaged headrest area of our leather lounge. But, I thought had nothing to loose so I gave it a try.

I cut a tiny sample of our leather away from underneath the recliner where that cannot be seen & sent that to Sofa Rehab to hopefully match our colour.

I've just completed the repair & colour. The colour match is perfect & now I cannot see where the damage was before. Marvellous product.
