File this one under the “why didn’t they just make the chair better to begin with” file. Picture this, Sicily 1927 (Estelle Getty, RIP), you’re sitting in your recliner with all your stuff perfectly balanced on yourself and you want to recline. You have to lean way the hell over to reach the lever and now your newspaper, reading glasses, bowl of prunes, wrapped sucking candies, and glass of wine from the box have all now shifted and spilled onto the clear plastic slipcover and into the crack of your chair. Not if you had a Recliner Lever Extender; just attach it to the lever and it’s easy to reach and pull. Four bolts keep it firmly attached, a padded grip over a steel handle are for strength and durability.
