Reclining sofa adjustment

When the tops of the backs are not level and flush with each other:

Here is a good video for the Do It Yourselfer, or field tech on how to adjust a reclining sofa in order to make it look better. Reclining sofas are like 2 “one armed” recliners joined together with a static armless chair in the middle. They will tend to get out of alignment over time, but this video shows how to remedy common issues.

  1. Absolutely brilliant. I’ve one end I sit on most. The upright is loose. Just couldn’t figure how it would be made more secure. On feeling the inside where ( I now know is the release clip) at to top end I could feel this small hole. I reckoned it was some type of ‘Allen Key’? Tried Allen keys, ball point keys, star keys to no avail. It was just a hole after all.
    Thanks from the UK June 2017. All made clear and simplified.
    Many thanks…,
