Why Your La-Z-Boy Recliner Makes Noise

La-Z-Boy Recliners are built with a pawl and rack system with 16 locking positions.

This mechanism is what allows you to sit at an angle while your footrest is in the up position.

As you lean back, you’ll hear a clicking noise from the pawl and rack as it locks your perfect angle of comfort into place.

How to Dampen La-Z-Boy Recliner Noise

The easiest way to dampen the sound of your La-Z-Boy Recliner is to place a rug underneath.

Your rug will absorb the noise and keep it from echoing throughout the house. Especially in homes with hardwood floors.

Another way to decrease the noise from your recliner is to open and close the footrest at a slower pace.

Quickly flipping your footrest up or down will cause the pawl and rack system to reverberate.

You can greatly reduce the noise from your recliner by slowly releasing the footrest.
