I WARNING
Always make sure that the grooves in the locking blocks are aligned with
the grooves in the backrest pivot bracket. If the grooves are not aligned,
the backrest could become loose and the backrest angle could change
unexpectedly. If the grooves are not aligned, the grooves may become
worn, causing the backrest angle to change unexpectedly. If you ignore
this warning, you may fall, tip over or lose control of the wheelchair and
seriously injure yourself or others or damage the wheelchair.

disengage from the locking grooves on the backrest pivot bracket.
3. Adjust the angle of the backrest to the desired angle.
5. Carefully re-engage both locking blocks, being extremely careful to
ensure that all of the grooves in the locking blocks are engaged in
grooves on the backrest pivot bracket. Make sure that no part of
either locking block overhangs past the front or rear of the backrest
pivot bracket.
