I replaced the sleeper sofa with two recliners. They are secured when traveling. No seat belts because you canít ride in the recliners. Please donít read into a reply and make poor snap judgements. Safe travels Forkyfork

How did you secure them? I have two on the flat floor slide but no way, and I thought, no need to secure them.

Just a simple strap going across both sets of arms connected to two small eye bolts that I installed discreetly. Just something to hold them down and from moving forward. Secured them just for that 1% chance of an accident. They really donít move much for average travel. Just something learned in 30 years in Fire service.

I would also know how you secured the recliners. I have a pair of lazy boy recliners in place of my original coach. Seatbelt bolts are available, but I havenít figured out a clean easy way to lock them down for travel. We like them movable when camping.

As you can see many going without theirs secured. Consider it a helpful PSA. You mentioned nothing about it thatís why I asked.

Thats a really good idea. I use a ratchet strap on my dining table and chairs and its certainly not efficient. Seat belts are a click and go.
