I had a Lazy Boy chair at my house, and once while camping, my stepson stayed at home and as it turns out...he had a party!
One of his friends snapped the reclining handle in half and tried to glue it back together with Elmers Glue.
Well, guess how I discovered they had a party...trying to recline my Lazy Boy, of course!
It had a lifetime warranty, and I just didn't use the chair for a couple of years, then one day I took it (the handle) to work with me as there was a new Lazy Boy store nearby.
Well, they gave me the runaround, then sent me to another store clear on the other side of Denver, which is supposedly where their 'parts center' was.
So I took it in there and said I'd like to have a new handle for my chair, and when the guy looked at it he said:
"Oh, you have the 'star' handle...can't get those anymore!"
I then asked him about the lifetime warranty and what was I supposed to do and he told me to buy a new chair or fabricate a new handle myself.
I said "I don't think so!" and walked out and will never buy another Lazy Boy chair.
That Lazy Boy recliner looked really good as I watched the big claw at the Denver landfill pick it up and dropped it in a huge pile of trash and vanished into oblivion!
