AbstractA reclining chair including a legrest operated reciprocating latch for releasably retaining the legrest. The legrest linkage is retracted when the occupant applies force to the legrest in a generally rearward direction until the parts of the latch engage one another to retain the legrest in the retracted position. The latch is released by a second, momentary application of force in the same direction, enabling the legrest to move to an extended position.
