Excellent metal bed frame!
Wow this bed frame was super easy to put together, it only took about 10 minutes and it looks great. Two pieces come folded up, like 2 smaller frames that you attach together. You just unfold them, turn them over, pull down 4 bars on each piece and screw them down with wing nuts. Flip them back over, butt them up against each other and put 2 screws in to hold the 2 pieces together. And you are all done! Then if you had to ever store it just unscrew the wing nuts and fold it back up. You don’t necessarily need tools for this but I did use pliers to help me tighten the 8 wing nuts and then pliers and a phillips screwdriver to help tighten the 2 screws with wing nuts that attach the 2 pieces together. This frame is really lightweight but yet sturdy. It didn’t say how much weight it can hold but it seems like it could hold a lot. It doesn't have wheels but was really easy to slide around on the carpet when trying to find just the perfect spot for it. The 12 legs work really well for extra stability and there’s lots of wires and bars for mattress support evenly across the frame. There isn’t anything along the edge to stop the mattress from sliding around but so far I haven’t had a problem with that. You don’t have to have a box spring with this frame, which is nice since I don’t have one. Mine is the Queen size so it measures 80"L x 60"W x 14"H. With the frame being 14” high that leaves a good 13” underneath for some extra storage space. It came in a box measuring 29.7” x 39.9” x 6.7” and weight 41 lbs. So it was very easy to get into the house. I highly recommend this bed frame.cricketoes
Durable Bed Frame - Easy Assembly
The 'Modern Sleep Platform Metal Bed Frame Mattress Foundation' requires little assembly. It comes with a one page assembly instruction sheet and two bolts with spacer and wing nuts. The two bolts with spacers and wing nuts are used to attach each side of the bed frame together. The 'Queen' size frame consist of a right side and left side frame, that can be connected with the stated two bolts with spacers and wing nuts. All you do for assembly, is open the frame/frames, tighten the wing nuts that are already in place, turn the frame/frames over, connect the frames (if more than one (twin size) frame) and attach the frames with the included bolts with spacers and wing nuts (2). If you order the twin size, it would be one frame. (Also, for your information, with the 'Queen' size, you could remove the bolts with spacers and wing nuts, that would resort back to two frames, resulting in two twin frames.....depending on your mattress sizes and needs.) The frame sits 13" and 1/2" inches from the floor. The main purpose of this type of bed frame is it's usage with memory foam mattresses....therefore, depending on how high your memory mattress is, will determine how high your bed is. Additionally, this bed frame can in fact be used with a standard box springs and mattress.....in that case, you'll most probably find the bed sits very high. I placed the Modern Sleep 14" inch hybrid mattress on this frame and it is high but not overly high. The Modern Sleep Platform Bed Frame Mattress Foundation, appears to be very durable, yet light weight. Be sure to tighten all wing nuts tight. After placing the mattress on the metal foundation, it is all very comfortable, no squeaks or movements. A major key to not having a squeaky metal bed frame is to tighten the wing nuts securely.mrblueu
Easy to assemble
If you are looking for a solid bed frame, this is the one to buy. Mine is the Queen size, & it is very, very nice. You can put it together in minutes, as nearly everything is right there. You only need to use the provided wing nuts to secure the leg supports, & two bolt assemblies to link the two halves together.
The instructions are pretty clear, though the picture could be a little better, you'll understand it when you are assembling it. Bring the supports down, tighten wing nuts-done.
I like how well this is built, with the guy supports running across, to support the bed. I didn't see till later, that it says you don't need to have a box spring. I, like most, have one of those, as we just bought a new bed. I can certainly see that you won't need a box spring, as this is a very sturdy frame. Mine didn't come with any mattress or box spring supports, but you can add those on later.
If you want to use this as a stand alone frame for your bed, it is great that way, as well. It's a bit taller than conventional frames (great if you want to store something under the bed), so if you have a thick mattress topper & comfy (thingy) like I do, your bed will be nearly three feet off the floor.
I personally like tall beds, because I'm tall. The honey, not so much; she's not tall, though she likes the added height, she isn't too fond of sliding off the bed. The picture shows all three pieces together, & let me tell you, it is very nice! I like a firm support, & the Hercules frame provides this for me. I never felt that the bed would slide off the frame, but I didn't really roll around on it vigorously. With twelve supports, it isn't going to coil or buckle, that's for sure.
For those of you who purchase this, that live in an apartment, you'll want to pick up some disks for the legs, so that you don't deform the carpet. I have either used those moving sliders, or bed risers. Depends on how high you want your bed. You can also use a sheet of wood, if you have that handy, if you don't have a throw rug.
If you own the carpeting you have other choices, obviously.
I see this frame lasting many, many years, & it looks like it will be able to fit quite a few bed configurations too.flrhcarr
