Recliner Removal: How to Disassemble a White Recliner

White recliners are the best. They’re super comfortable and they give you that cozy feeling of home. But how do you remove a white recliner?

This blog post will show how to disassemble a white recliner, so it’s easier for moving or storage purposes!

 

Steps on Disassembling White Recliner

Step One: Remove the back of the recliner. The back is typically secured by four screws that you can unscrew with a Phillips head screwdriver or Allen wrench, depending on how your chair was built.

Keep in mind that some chairs have an additional latch at this point to keep them from rocking too much during use. You may need to unscrew that latch before removing the back.

The screws are typically located on the inside of the chair, near where your head would be when sitting in it, and they need to come out for you to remove the back panel. Remove them with a Phillips head screwdriver or Allen wrench depending on how it is built.

Note: some recliners have a latch to keep them from rocking during use. You may need to unscrew that before removing the screws.

Step Two: Remove the front armrests and headrest. The arms are usually secured by one or two bolts that can be easily removed with an Allen wrench, while the headrest is typically affixed via velcro.

The armrests will have to be removed, and the head rests as well if applicable. You’ll need to unscrew these with a screwdriver (Allen wrench) or by hand depending on how they’re secured. Most recliners use screws for attachment so you should just take them out with an Allen key using your hands or a screwdriver.

A latch may be present on the armrest, near the back of it. Disengage this and remove if so equipped before removing screws or bolts from the arms themselves.

The back of the armrest could be screwed to a long wooden stripe that runs from one side to another. If so, remove them by unscrewing with an Allen wrench or screwdriver and then pulling up on it until you can get enough slack in the material for your hands to grab onto.

Just pull this off how much of the side you can get your hands on, then unscrew the retaining screws or bolts to remove this.

The armrest is sometimes screwed onto a long wooden stripe that runs from one side to another (on metal recliners). If so, remove them by unclenching with an Allen wrench or screwdriver and then pulling up on it until you can get enough slack in the material for your hands to grab onto.

Just pull this off how much of the side you can get your hands on, then unscrewing the remaining screws or bolts to remove it.

After removing these pieces, take a second and look at how they’re attached: if there are screws or bolts, unscrew them and remove the pieces.

If there are no screws to be found, then you’re probably dealing with a glue joint: how these are often done on recliners made from particleboard (which they use in lower-quality models). To take off this type of joint, all it takes is some heat. Use a blow dryer to heat the glue and it will loosen up, making it easier for you to pry off with your h
