New Canyon Star - Recliners - saftey?

Quick question.... go my new coach yesterday afternoon, spent the night at the dealer to check things out. Notice the two recliners have NO hold down on the hoops on the bottom. Was this an over site, Please let me know if you recliners have some type of bracket, strap etc. to keep from moving for safety when traveling.

Thanks

Will put some photos and other updates when we get home.

Free standing recliners do not have any securing provisions.

Mine sat on carpet and never moved when traveling.

I have a Euro Recliner in my coach, no holddown and like 66, it never moves when on the road. I just slide it back to the wall and go. Doesn't move an inch.

Of course, they are not legal to use while moving.

I removed my soda/bed and installed 2 Euro style recliners. The sofa had 3 seat belts, I use the seat belts that are attached to the floor to secure the chairs. I would think that in the case of a bad accident or harsh maneuver that these light weight recliners would move if not secured.
