How to Get a Power Recliner Up

Steps on Getting a Power Recliner Up

Step 1. Find the power switch that is usually on a cord near the base of your recliner. This will turn off all functions and make it easier to move around even if you don’t want to completely get up from your chair.

Step 2. If there are any levers or buttons in front, be sure to release these before sliding out of the chair.

Step 3. If you have a recliner with arms, pull up on these to help it slide out of the seat part easier. Be sure that the arm is lowered before trying to move it because this will prevent any damage from happening.

Step 4. Slide your hands underneath where the back of your power recliner starts and push it forward to start moving it out.

Step 5. When you get just past the front edge of your chair, let one hand go and then use both hands to push on either side or in back towards yourself until the recliner is mostly up. Then slip your other arm through whatever opening there may be so that you can fully lift it off of the ground and onto the floor.

Step 6. If you need to turn around, do so before lifting your power recliner off of the ground or it will be very difficult because there is no support in that position.

 

Do Power Recliners Have a Manual Override? 

No, they do not.

 

Can you put a Power Recliner in the Back Seat of Your car?

Only if you have access to the trunk or some other space to store it and can take off all its parts so that nothing is touching anything else while traveling. The process could also be complicated because upholstery can be a delicate thing.

-If you do not have access to the trunk or other space, most power recliners are too big for your back seat unless they’re in their smallest form and able to fold up which is rarer than it should be.

 

How Difficult is it Take Care of an Electric Powered Recliner?

#1. It depends on the type of recliner. Some power recliners can be put upright without issue and some need to stay lying down at all times because they have a cord that needs to remain plugged in for safety reasons.

A person would want their hands free when lifting or carrying a heavy recliner too so it’s important to know how it operates before you get to the store.

#2. If an electric recliner needs to stay lying down, it should be taken apart and then reassembled when they’re in place because there will be less strain on them while being carried or lifted where they need to go next. It’s not easy at all with a heavy power recliner.

#3. A power recliner that can be put upright, but needs to stay plugged in at all times for safety reasons, is best taken apart and reassembled right where it will permanently reside because they are not designed to carry weight when being moved from one place to another. It’s important to know how the electric-powered chair operates before you go to the store.

#4. If your recliner is just a manual chair and not electric, it should be taken apart when moving because there will be less risk of damage to anything that might get caught during transport. The best way to take apart an upholstered chair is by removing all its pieces one at a time in reverse order.
