The Lane recliner is a perfect piece of furniture for relaxing and taking the weight off your feet. However, if you have springs that are not functioning properly or need to be replaced, we will show how easy it can be done with these step-by-step instructions.
Steps to Replace a Spring on a Lane Recliner
Step 1. Remove the old spring by removing the upholstery. You may need to remove a few screws, bolts, or nails from the bottom of your recliner to do this. To make sure you get everything out that needs removal, use an ice pick and unbolt any brackets on the inside as well.
Step 2. Take the new spring, and measure how long it needs to be by using a measuring tape or ruler. Cut the ends of the wire with pliers to make sure you have enough room for both sides of your recliner frame. Bend one end into an “x” shape (or use pliers) so that when you put it through the frame, there is a space for screwing in.
Step 3. Put one end of your spring over the top of the frame and then measure how far down you need to go so that both ends are even with each other.
Step 4. Once you have measured this, use pliers or wire cutters to bend that side into an “x” shape and place it over the frame.
Step 5. Take your other end of the spring, but one side over the top of that bent bar on each side (an x should be formed), and bend this part inwards to lock it all together. Now screw in a bolt or two with an Allen wrench so that both sides are securely in place.
Step 6. Repeat these steps on the other side of your recliner frame to replace the other spring.
The Time it Takes
It should take about an hour if you know what you’re doing, or a little longer if not – but don’t worry! You will be able to do this and save your money.
Why do I Need to Change the Spring on my Recliner?
The spring is not attached to the frame and can be easily removed.
You can come up with a more comfortable position by replacing broken or worn-out springs on your Lane recliner chair that may have become distorted over time. Springs will also need to be replaced if they have been cut, crimped, or broken.
In addition, the spring is what controls how much pressure you feel on your back and buttocks when sitting in a recliner chair. If it becomes too low or high this will have adverse effects on both your posture and circulation as well as causing pain or discomfort in certain areas of your body.

#5. Make sure not to cut through any of the metal pieces with your pliers unless you have been told otherwise by an expert.
#6. Remove each broken away end of one coil from the old spring.
#7. Place the end of one coil from your new spring on each of those holes where you just removed the broken away ends.
#8. Use a screwdriver to tighten down these coils and secure them in place with screws.
#9. If your chair has more than two springs, be sure that they are evenly spaced out so that your chair will not collapse.
#10. If you have done everything correctly, the spring should be firmly in place and ready to use.”
