Are you interested in learning how to easily disassemble and remove the back of your La-Z-Boy Recliner?

Removing the back makes moving your recliner much easier. Plus, you’re able to do some easy maintenance while the backrest is off.

In this article and video, we’ll go over five easy steps to remove, tighten, and install the back of your La-Z-Boy Recliner.

How to Remove Your La-Z-Boy Recliner Back

What You’ll Need: Flat/Slotted Screwdriver

  1. Roll Your Recliner Forward
  2. Locate Locking Brackets on the Back
  3. Pull Locking Levers Up with Slotted Screwdriver
  4. Roll Recliner Back to Normal Position
  5. Remove Backrest by Rocking Side-to-Side in Upward Motion

Take This Opportunity to Tighten Your Brackets

The brackets on the back of your La-Z-Boy Recliner can get loose over time.

While the back of your recliner is off, tighten the screws on both brackets to make it more secure.

You can also tighten the exposed screws on the brackets of the body. These are the brackets that keep the back in place.

Tightening these screws will keep the back of your recliner from wobbling or tilting.

After these screws are tightened, you’re ready to put your La-Z-Boy Recliner back together.
