Have you ever watched how your grandparents or parents adjust the tensions of a lazyboy recliner? Do you feel like they are always fumbling with all those buttons and levers that are in such proximity to one another? You’re not alone.
The manufacturers of these chairs probably figured that there would be enough people who have difficulty figuring how to do this, so they made sure it was easy for them by putting all the buttons right next to each other.
If you want to know how to adjust the tensions of a lazyboy recliner, then continue reading this blog post!
Steps on How to Adjust the Tension of a Lazyboy Recliner
Step 1. First, make sure the chair is sitting upright with all four legs on the ground. Now sit down in it and put your feet flat on the floor – how does it feel? If you’re not completely comfortable, then that’s ok! This next step will help fix any discomfort.
Step 2. Next, find a lever or knob on the chair that can adjust how far back you lean. These are usually found on either side of the seat, or at its base.
Step 3. Now with your body leaning forward and one hand on each lever/knob, push them in towards one another until it feels comfortable for how far back you want to recline (or lie down).
Step 4. Keep in mind that how far back you push these levers/knobs will determine how much pull it takes to recline the chair.
Step 5. And voilà! You now have a fully adjustable lazyboy recliner perfect for any position or setting!
What is a Lazyboy Recliner Tension?
A Lazyboy recliner tension is how tight or loose the chair seat and back can be adjusted. If your lazyboy feels like it’s pulling you in, then it might need a little more adjusting! The best way to do this is by using one hand on each of the levers/knobs for how much pull there will be when you recline.

What Causes Lazyboy Recliners with Too Tight Tensions?

Types of Lazyboy Recliners
There are many types of lazy boy recliners, ranging anywhere from the standard
recliner to a power lift chair. The most popular type is the Manual Recliner which has no motorized features . This allows you to control how high or low your back goes by leaning forward and backward in order for it to adjust accordingly. These recliners are also cheaper in price.
The power lift chair is a little more expensive, but it does have motorized features that make it easier on your back for how high or low you want to go. This type of recliner can be adjusted either by pressing buttons on an armrest or with your feet. It will also give you the ability to recline in a sitting position.
The final type of lazy boy recliner is called a Lift Recliner or EZ-LIFT Recliner and it’s probably the most expensive option. This chair does not have any buttons that allow for how high or low it can go, instead of relying on how you move to determine how high or low the back goes.
How to Deep Clean a Lazy Boy Recliner
The secret to how a lazy boy recliner is cleaned and how it stays clean in between deep cleans can be summed up in one easy step: routine maintenance.
Routine maintenance means you are cleaning the dirty parts of your chair as soon as they get messy with things like pet hair or crumbs from snacks. You also need to vacuum, dust, and generally clean the entire chair at least once a month.
The first thing to do is remove any cushions from your lazy boy recliner. This will help you vacuum all of the surfaces more easily because they are out of the way.
Once this step has been completed then it is time for some good old-fashioned elbow grease. Both the top and bottom pieces of your chair should be vacuumed thoroughly before you give it a good dusting with a dry cloth or rag.
