There are a bunch of retired engineers on this forum but we are all busy trying to screw in a light bulb. If you can post a picture of what the issue is, I’m pretty sure somebody can come up with a mod suggestion for you. Please keep in mind that the recliner you intend to use plays a part in the mod.
Meanwhile, Welcome to the Sunseeker section of the FRF.
Welcome to Lake Wobegon where Justin and David utilize abductive reasoning to help solve F/SS issues.
Happy Trails and Remember the Pequod.
