Reclining Chair Brake

A customer approached me to ask whether I could design and print replacements for the brakes on their reclining chair. A day later, I had the prototypes ready. The two top parts are the damaged originals. The two on the bottom left and bottom right were printed on my FDM printer in PLA; they are OK, but neither pretty nor strong. The one in the middle bottom was printed with resin on my LittleRP, and it is both cosmetically perfect as well as strong. The remaining pictures show how the part is used on the chair.
