Just how to unclip the back of a raymour recliner? This is one question that many people ask themselves. The answer, however, is easy. If you have ever had your back clip on your recliner and not be able to get it off, then this blog post will help you out!
Steps on Unclipping the Back of a Raymour Recliner
Step One: The first step is to locate the hook at the top of your recliner. Usually, this will be under the fabric that makes up the back of your recliner, and you may need to tug on it a bit before it slides out from underneath and becomes visible. Once found, take note of how far down you have pulled the tab and how it is hooked.
Step Two: The next step is to pull the tab down and unhook it from bottom-up, or upside-down for you to reach it better with your arm and hands. If there are any other tabs on the recliner that need to be pulled out as well, then take note of how many of these and how they are hooked.
Step Three: The final step is to remove the fabric from around where you have unhooked and pulled out tab, or tabs. You may need to pull on it a bit if not enough slack has been created for you to reach in easily with your hands and arms. This should generally come free just by pulling on it.
Step Four: Place the fabric somewhere that is safe and where you can find it easily again when needed. It doesn’t need to be perfect, but try not to crumple or wrinkle in any way while moving from one place to another as this could potentially cause problems for how your recliner fits back together.
Step Five: Once you have the fabric out of your way, it’s time to unbuckle the bolts or screws that are holding the recliner in place. These will be located either at each end of your chair rungs if this is a four-piece reclining model or on top and bottom rails on a two-piece reclining model.
Step Six: Loosen the bolts or screws enough so that you can lift on one side of your chair and pull around to access the other sides. This will give you a better angle for how to work with it when removing them completely from their places.
Step Seven: When all four or two bolts or screws are removed, you can then lift your chair and set it aside. Congratulations! You have now successfully unclipped the back of a raymour recliner in seven easy steps!
How to remove the frame from your chair.
Step 1: Start by removing any base caps as well as armrests that are not built into the frame. From there, you should be able to see how two bolts or screws hold each side of your recliner’s back panel together at either end.
Step 2: Remove the bolts or screws and then simply pull apart to remove the back panel from your recliner frame. If you need, feel free to use a flathead screwdriver as an aid when removing these fasteners just so that they can be unscrewed more easily than with fingers alone. Now that we have the back panel off, we can take a look at how things are put together.
Step 3: To remove the frame from your chair, start by removing any base caps as well as armrests that are not built into the frame. From there, you should be able to see how two bolts or screws hold each side of your recliner’s back panel together at either end. From this point forward, you should be able to remove the bolts or screws and then simply pull apart to remove the back panel from your recliner frame.
Step 4: If you are replacing a damaged piece, assembly is going to go in reverse order of how we took things off just now. With that said, reattach one bolt or screw at a time, tightening them as you go.
Step 5: Repeat this process for the other side of your recliner frame and then, finally, reattach the back panel to each bolt or screw in reverse order how we removed it from before.
Step 6: Now that both sides are secure again with all bolts or screws tightened down, you can go ahead and reattach the back panel to your recliner frame. Just do this by lining up one side with how it was originally lined up before removing it, making sure that you are not pulling too hard on anything else.
What is Unclipping a Recliner?
A recliner is a chair with an attached footrest and leg rest. The back of the recliner can be adjusted to lean backward, which is how you would position it if you wanted to take a nap in your home on the weekend.
Unclipping or unzipping the back of the recline means that there’s a clip or zipper on the back of the chair that you can undo to get into and out of your recliner.
