Dear Sir

This will be my first attempt to bring notice of a product that is lacking in safety. I purchased a LAZY BOY (POWER RECLINER (P1M702) model. This model has a long hard wired remote control. After three years of use , my wife went to exit from the sitting position the remote had slid between the seat an arm rest. Upon rising from the seat the seat cushion returned to normal trapping an activating the foot rest. This pushed against her back legs as she was trying to stand. RESULT LOSS OF BALANCE. Part of the foot rest failed giving full access to the floor.

My experience involved personal safety. Many ways this could have been prevented by manufacture ! I have disconnected the electric from this chair until I install device to prevent chair remote from becoming trapped. I request that all LAZY BOY owners be notified of this possibility NOW.

A video can be provided of chair in motion with remote TRAPPED.

This is a duplicate of Report No. 20171112-6439B-2147395498. As we wrote in response to that report: We are sorry to learn of the consumer’s experience with our product. As far as we know, this is the first report we have received of a controller being activated after falling down in a chair. We do not believe the product presents any danger.
