Before you try to get up from your recliner it’s important that you first make sure the footrest is securely clicked back into its fixed position. Failure to do this may result in the recliner tipping.
On your manual recliner, this means using your legs to push the footrest back into an upright position - make sure it clicks into place before you lean forward and attempt to stand up.
It’s also important to keep your weight centred as you stand up. If you lean left or right and place all of your weight onto only one of the arms, you will find that the recliner may tip. Keep your body in the centre of the armchair, place one hand on each arm of the recliner, ensure the footrest is clicked into place and then it will be safe to stand up.
