This lever corrects recliner's design flaws.
The lever on my sister's recliner should have been designed to allow for the "loosening" of the chair's original tight tolerances. This lever retro designs a lever that now requires less effort to sit the chair upright.

It makes it much easier to move the handle. Easier to get out of the chair.

Just what I needed. Gives a longer length and better shape to easily work the handle to open or close the recliner. It was getting difficult to use this chair with just the handle that came with the chair.

I love the handle it has help me greatly to open up my recliner and close it. I recommended for all seniors who have a hard time reclining in their recliner because the handle is hard to grip and this new handle I have really works good

Every recliner should have this on it. It makes putting your feet up super easy.. You no longer have to lean out of your chair to reach that short handle. Love it. ,!!

Teresa B on Feb 17, 2018
Moms strength isn't as good as she needs to operate the recliner on a daily basis. She is afraid her arm will be injured. Would this extender make the pressure needed to recline the chair less?
Margie on Apr 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My new Lazy Boy recliner required a lot of pressure to lift the foot rest. I bought the extender and found it helped only a little bit. It was still very difficult to operate the foot rest. I should have had Lazy Boy come to my home to try to adjust it but I didn't want to pay the $50. they wanted to come out. I got rid of the chair and I would have done better not to have bought the extender for this particular chair. I have a friend who has the same problem with her Lazy Boy recliner. They aren't making them as nice as the older ones.
Will this breal my handle?
Ron H on Jun 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, I have been using mine for 2 1/2 yrs. & there is no damage to the handle of the chair. It just helps we raise my feet. I have severe Rheumatoid Arthritis & it allows me to grip the handle & move it easier.
Does this handle make reclining easier?
Ann H on Jan 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does make reclining easier, the lever smoothly opens the recliner. I really appreciate it on closing the recliner - it's especially easier. I use it all the time.
How does it attach to the handle of the recliner?
Laura K on Aug 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It slides right over the chair handle and is tightened with the enclosed screwdriver. It needs to be tightened periodically or it can slip off.
What is the minimum handle circumference on which this extender will fit?
Wilma P on Oct 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The lever can fit a handle 3/4" wide up to 1 1/2" wide. We hope this information will be of help to you.
What is the width of the handle?
A shopper on Mar 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. It is 7 1/4 inches wide. We hope this information will be of help to you.
Does it make reclining easier?
Ann H on Jan 21, 2016
