Steps on How to Make a Recliner Chair Swivel

Step One: Remove the armrests. This may be optional but is often a good idea because many people who use recliner chairs have trouble moving their arms around when they are stationary (especially if you’re left-handed). You can do this by unscrewing the screws under your chair’s seat with an appropriate screwdriver, then removing the screws on the armrests.

Step Two: Take off the back of your chair’s seat using a Phillips screwdriver and then remove any bolts holding it in place with an appropriate wrench or socket set. This will give you access to the springs that are attached to either side of your recliner chair’s base, as well as other parts.

Step Three: Remove the springs on either side of your chair’s base, which you can do by removing bolts with a wrench or socket set. You’ll want to use an appropriate size tool for this; otherwise, it may be difficult taking the screws out and putting them back in later. This will give more room between your seat and  the back of your chair

Step Four: Replace the springs on either side of your recliner’s base with a different size and/or type. This will require you to use an appropriate wrench or socket set, as well as another Phillips screwdriver.

If you’re not sure how to do this step, consult a professional for help; otherwise, you can risk breaking the springs, which will make your chair less comfortable and more difficult to move.

Step Five: Remove the bolts on either side of your recliner’s base using a wrench or socket set. Again, this is where an appropriate size tool for removal/reinstallation is important; otherwise, it may be difficult taking the bolts out of the chair’s base.

Step Six: Reinstall your recliner by reversing these steps (i.e., put the new springs on either side of your recliner’s base, replace bolts). Again, be sure you’re using appropriate-sized tools for all parts that need to be removed and/or reinstalled so it can be done in a fraction of the time it took to remove them.

Step Seven: Sit back and enjoy your newly-swiveling recliner chair!
