5 Easy Steps to Remove and Install Your La-Z-Boy Recliner Back

Did you know you can remove the back of your La-Z-Boy Recliner? Removing the back makes moving through tight spots much easier.

Plus, you can fix a common problem while the back of your recliner is off.

In this article and the video below, we cover 5 easy steps to remove, tighten, and install the back of your La-Z-Boy Recliner.

What You’ll Need: Flat/Slotted Screwdriver

Removing Your La-Z-Boy Recliner Back

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

Fix This Common Problem While the Back Is Off

The brackets on the back of your La-Z-Boy Recliner can get loose over time. While the back is off, tighten the screws on both brackets to make the back 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 keeps your La-Z-Boy Recliner Back from wobbling back and forth. After these screws are tightened, you’re ready to put your La-Z-Boy Recliner back together.

Installing Your La-Z-Boy Recliner Back

  1. Align the Brackets with the Back at a Slight Angle
  2. Roll the Recliner Forward
  3. Push the Locking Levers Down with Slotted Screwdriver
  4. Roll the Recliner Back to Normal Position
  5. Test Installation by Gently Twisting from Side-to-Side
