We decided to remove one of the rocker/recliners for our trip west across Canada so I also wanted to tether the chair to keep it from moving. In our case the chairs move toward the center of the 5er or the inside of the slide and slightly to the rear of the slide. So I devised some straps to do just that. It can still rock but shouldn't make contact with any walls.
I used some white chinstraps from hockey helmets and small carabiners to hook on to the base that are anchored to the floor with 1/2" screws (have to make sure the screws aren't longer than the thickness of the slide floor). I cut a black chinstrap in half loopining through a key ring and attached it to the round metal base hoop, spoke with a self drilling/tapping sheet metal screw. This way the tether strap will remain on the floor out of the way and the smaller black loop wil not interfere with the operation of the rocker/recliner. I will attempt to post some pictures.
