The “Other” Man’s Best Friend

Posted by innovativeip on August 6, 2010

Today’s Patent of the Day is U.S. patent no. 3,100,126, issued August 6, 1963 for “Reclining Chair and Control Arrangement.” 

Today's Patent of the Day

Yes, the recliner is truly the “other” man’s best friend.  And, on this Friday, heading into the weekend, there are undoubtedly many men who are gearing up for a weekend, or at least an evening, stretched out and possibly even snoring in their most revered personal space.  Today’s patent introduces the side lever control, one and the same with the chair that my father enjoys each day, some 50 years later.  In 1963, at the time of this patent, we hadn’t yet gotten to television remote controls and NFL football, but the path to male nirvana was indeed begun with the creation of this foundational element, the recliner.

Recliner lovers, you can read the full patent at  Enjoy!
