Hei Guys,
Building a sun lounge - a beefy one, 120x45 for the frame and 45x90 for the slats, because I had that stuff lying around.

My problem is that I don't like the designs that have an extended frame to allow for the recliner mechanism.

Anyone know of a recliner mechanism that doesn't need the extended frame - I was think a motorbike chain encased in steel tubing but itwould still flex at the joint.
I also thought of a simple pin system around the join bolt but this would have wear issues I think.

Any ideas?
