    The instruction videos on website and the one you sent me were great as they were very easy to follow and installation went surprisingly well. The 10 year old recliner couches I thought were a right off are working as if they were new again.
    CouchGuard online store was recommended by the furniture store we bought the lounges from after calling them on Monday which was when I placed the order and my order was delivered on Thursday the same week.
    Kind regards and thank you once again.
