It is the first time we have purchased 2 recliners recently. We find it very difficult to position the chairs to full recline. Having gone to the store to check why this is happening, we were shown again how to activate this option. However, unless one is quite strong, it is not easy. Needless to say, we can't engage this function. Please advise? Thank you.

The chairs are difficult if not impossible to lock into a fully reclined position and I find that you need to adjust your body position and keep pressure on the back support which really defeats the purpose and doesn't give you the stressless and comfortable experience that you are promised. You will find from my other posts that I am very disappointed with my stressless seats and really think that they are overpriced and do not live up to the companies claims of quality build and comfort.

Do all stressless chairs have the same lumbar and neck support system even older ones?

As far as I know yes but be aware it is no where near as good as the manufacturer claims.

The frames are quite well made and should take 13 stone easily. However the cushion foam that is used is quite thin and compresses quickly making them uncomfortable and useless and they may need reupholstering after about 18 months of continual use.

Totally agree with Mal.B. Overpriced and cushions are very poor quality

My stressless recliner chair seeks whenever I move. My husbands, bought at the same time and the same size, does not. Any ideas how to solve this problem?

I take it you mean Squeaks!. If it is, it depends where and when it's squeaking, it could be that some of the screws on the frame or arms have worked loose, if so its just a case of tightening the offending screws. If it's the swivel mechanism you could try some Vaseline. Good luck. And I hope your cushions last better than mine did.

I had a similar problem with my seat and ended up with a new frame. Still unhappy with the seat cushons though and would never buy another stressless product.
