These are bolts, not screws.

Our chairs come Buttkicker ready, and we supply bolts and nuts with the chairs for the BK self install.

Hope this helps

Indeed it does...so they are just buttkicker bolts then and nothing to worry about. As I find them I'll just keep them together in a bag.

Buttkicker ready? Does that only include certain Buttkicker products or will other tactile transducers fit?

I think I'm going to buy four fusion escapes.

bombertodd,

Our chairs come with factory preinstalled rubber isolators that decouple the chairs from the floor and damp vibrations that come from the BKs. We also have a factory preinstalled plate on the bottom of the chair, and it was specifically designed to accept either mini or advanced BK4-4 buttkicker. We offer pre-installation option, and can do it before shipping the chairs. The BKs can also be self-installed at later point.

I strongly recommend using BK4-4 buttkickers over mini ones for several reasons:

* mini buttkickers can easily bottom out when installed on that plate and generate a clunking sound
* mini buttkickers reproduce the lower frequencies starting at 10 Hz, while the advanced BK4-4 go down to 5 Hz
* the BK4-4s are also more powerful

Hope this helps

Contact me via email or call me, and I can answer all your questions and provide more info if needed.

Is there any difference in build quality between the Escape and the other models or is a lack of features the main difference here?

Quality, construction, covers, components and some features, like pocketed coil springs in the seats, BUTTKICKER READY, wallway design, attention to lumbar and head support are the same across our line of seating.

The differences between the chairs are in sizes, looks, shapes of the seats/arms (hence comfort), as well as features.

Each style groups was decided to address a specific customer.

Encore-1010 with manual recline in leather gel is the most affordable recliner, and still very comfortable and reliable.
Lagoon-1011 is an entry point motorized recliner with added USB port
Jive-1013 was designed with narrow footprint addressing the needs of the customers looking to place more chairs in smaller rooms. It also comes with storage compartment in the chair arm, and aluminum tray.
Tribute-1015 is bigger contemporary looking chair with highest back (44.75") that has all the features of the Jive, but also adds manually adjustable headrest
Streamline-1017 has motorized lumbar support and integrated cup holder with controls on the rim of it and a controllable light
Escape-1019 is our top of the line recliner that has bucket seat, motorized headrest, integrated cupholder with controls on the rim of it, and controllable cooler.

I am hoping that anyone, Roman or owners, can give me some perspective on relative speed of power recline (interested in Jive specifically). Currently I have some other sofa's with power recline and my biggest gripe is that they are a bit of a hinderence when I want to get up quickly and I have to "wait" for them to close completely. My assumption is that the Jive do not have a power headrest, can someone confirm/deny that as well.

I've found most power reclines are all about the same speed. I think any faster and people may not be able to dial in exactly where they want the recline to stop. If you need to get up quickly from your chair, I would not go with power reclines from any manufacturer. Just my two cents.

On the Jives, I'd say it's around 12-13 seconds to and from full recline. In fairness, I very rarely use full recline, and would say about 10 seconds from my "normal" position. If the jump up quickly thing is often a concern, power recline might not be the best option.

Remember, no matter where you go... You're not where you were anymore.

Most of the motorized recliners today use OKIN motors that have the same speed. Relatively to the motors Berkline used in the past these are faster. They will not allow you to quickly jump off the chair, but the infinite control over the chair, and ability to stop it in any position between fully upright and fully reclined one makes the power recline feature a must IMHO.

Putting in my order tomorrow. Deposit down on the chairs until I finish up everything with my room. Hopefully by end of december ill be ready for them.

Decided on 3 curved Escapes. Sat in similar chairs at a local furniture store and the adjustable head rest is simply amazing.

I have to say don't order from Roman unless you like fast shipping and extremely prompt customer service/response to your questions!

Ordered a 4 chair set last week and received them today!

Thank you!

You're going to be very happy with your chairs. I went with the Streamline model because of the smaller footprint and love them. WAF is very high as well.

I bought 4 Lagoon's in April of 2012 and 3 of the 4 have started to have the vinyl peel badly.

You would expect a little longer life out of them. 2 Of the head rests have peeled, and one of the seats. The one with the seat peeling gets sat in little to none as its just me and my son using the theater room 2x's a month.

Ahy thoughts Roman?

According to industry standards bonded leather has about 5 years lifespan.

The longevity could depend on various factors:

* whether the room has temperature controlled environment
* how much the furniture is used and how
* hear oil and body sweat may effect the cover.

I am actually puzzled that with such low usage, and I assume no humidity in the room the cover started giving problems. We have shipped over 7000 chairs since we have started in 2011, and half of it was in bonded leather. i do nor see that many problems, and am wondering whether this particular batch was not as good as others...

At this point the only way to deal with it is replacing the cover.

IF you are handy, and know what you are doing than you probably can, but in most cases the local upholstery shop is a better way to go.

For the seat it would be more efficient and easier to replace the whole chaise - cover with the foam inside.

You can add me to the list of owners with peeling bonded leather. My 4 5.5 year old escapes look very similar to yours. 2 of the chairs are peeling pretty bad on the seat and head rests. All of the chairs have a tleast 1 or 2 burnt out led lights on the controls. I replaced them all 2 years ago ( under warranty ) and they have burned out again. I should have never got the bonded leather. big mistake.

Looking for suggestion: When I received my chairs about 1 year ago, they had an issue with the packaging/shipment, and one seat has its leather "dented", see pictures. I thought after a few months, now 1 year, the "dent" would fade away but no luck...
Any suggestion or advice on how to potentially fix it?

same thing here, they are pretty hideous to look at. Agree on bonded as well, never again
