AbstractAn inclination adjustment fitting for adjusting the inclination of a seat back relative to a seat body and tilting the seat into a release position includes a first and a second actuation element mounted about an actuation shaft, an opposing element secured to the seat back, a ratcheting disk mounted to the seat back and including a plurality of engaging teeth, and a ratcheting block mounted to the seat back and including an engaging surface. The seat inclination is adjusted by pivoting the first actuation element, thereby releasing the engaging teeth from the engaging surface and pivoting the second actuation element and allowing the ratcheting disk to rotate. The seat is tilted to the release position by pivoting the second actuation element wherein the first actuation element remains in its initial position and the ratcheting disk is secured against the seat body by means of the ratcheting block.
