    Other than the fact that Fedex completely was slow at delivering this product, it arrived undamaged with everything intact. I know there’s people out there who are big. Want to know if this little 100 buck frame is going to hold all that love without bending or breaking under stress. I can assure you as I am laying on my mattress supported by this frame that it is holding sturdy, with no creaks, shakes, or any weird noises that would come from too much weight. It does what it is intended to do and it is SERIOUSLY EASY to assemble. So I will walk you through it.

    First off, you flip out the first part of the section (theres two identical sections) flat on the floor and open the legs at each end. There are two support beams that open out with little hooks at the ends. You will see the two little wingnuts that obiviously have to be adjusted to slide the hooks under the nuts then tighten the wingnuts down nice and snug. Do this for the next three legs of the section.

    Second, once you achieve this, make sure that you have enough tightness by testing the beams by jiggling them to check for any movement. If theres none, then you’re good. If there is, flip back over and retighten. Recheck and move to the next piece.

    Third and Last, once you have the second section the same way, bring them right next to each other and attach them using the two long screws in the little bag provided in the box. The black rubber part is to be placed between the two frames (unscrew the wingnuts on the ends of these screws and run the plain long screw through the end of the first section, place black piece on the end of the screw before going through the other side and slide over). Grip the frame tight together and use the last little wingnut to screw snugly at the end. Do this for the other end and you got it.

    Enjoy your goodnight’s sleep.

    Our old bed was terrible. It was a cheap, noisy, wook-slatted flat-pack thing. We needed a new mattress and definitely didn’t want to put it on THAT.

    After reading the reviews on here we decided to go with this platform bed. SOOOO glad we did. It sets up in a snap (seriously easy) and poof! new bed. It supports our awesome new memory foam mattress and is the normal height for a standard 14″ bedskirt.

    My hubby and I are both overweight and it doesn’t phase the platform at all. Even, um, “vigorous” activity doesn’t make it squeak or anything.

    If you need something strong, sturdy, and easy to set up, get this! There’s also the version with headbord/footboard brackets attached if you need that.

    One word of warning: the package is HEAVY when it arrives. 120+ pounds. That’s the only “downside” and that only mattered for as long as it took to get it down the hall to the bedroom.

    This review is from: Sleep Master Platform Metal Bed Frame/Mattress Foundation, Full (Misc.)

    First, a little note. When people review stuff online, it’s usually because they totally loved the product or hated it. Unfortunately, that doesn’t account for STUPIDITY, so reviews should be treated with caution.
    Personally, my favorite reviews are usually 3 stars. They’re usually pretty honest.

    Here’s how I use online reviews:
    a) I carefully read the full item description, features, and specs from the manufacturer, and look at photos of the product to check for consistency.
    b) I read five to ten of the 5-star reviews to see if what the reviewers enjoyed matched the item description.
    c) I read every 1-star review and use a rubric that scores on:
    i) the reviewer’s intelligence level (not even highest education received and I feel like I’m very generous on spelling and grammar mistakes, as I think an average fourth grader is still competent enough to rate most products),
    ii) the reviewer’s experience level with products of that nature (for example, if I’m buying carabiners and the reviewer says they know nothing about climbing, then I know I can’t trust the review),
    iii) whether the reviewer is reviewing the product or the seller (yes, there is a different place to rate the seller, as well as the packaging and shipping speed, but some people don’t seem to understand that, see above for stupidity),
    iv) whether the reviewer read the item description,
    v) and finally, what they were actually disappointed about.

    This bed is exactly as described. I bought it to replace a platform bed with wooden slats that I didn’t feel confident would stand up again after another move and my career field leads to lots of relocations. Field technicians in biology, ecology, forestry, etc. have adopted the phrase “bio gypsy” and for good reason.

    I read multiple reviews for this product and loads of other beds like it before I decided to take the leap. And leap I did!

    1) It is extremely easy to setup. I took about 20 minutes, diligently checking that I’d securely tightened all the foot-supporting bars’ wing nuts: first when the two halves were upside down, then when they were right-side up and finally after I’d connected them. There were instructions for assembly, but only a very very dumb monkey would need them. The support bars for the legs are very obvious and if they aren’t, try to imagine any reason for the wing nuts, to which the support bars attach, to exist on such a minimal design.

    Also, part of those 20 minutes were also spent making sure the thing would disassemble as easily as it setup. It passed that test.

    2) I’ve had the bed for less than a week, but I’ve been testing it pretty thoroughly (though not in the “active couple” way quite yet, that will be next week (; ) by jumping up and down and rolling and bouncing. I’ve tried to make it squeak. I weigh ~140 lbs (which isn’t particularly heavy, I know, which is why I’ve been aggressively jumping to try to get a squeak) and I can’t get a peep from this thing. There are no pieces of metal to rub together to make any god-awful noise. There are some reviews that mentioned both creaking AND squeaking. I may be wrong, but I consider those to be very different. Creaking would occur if there was some part of the frame rubbing another and squeaking is when a joint or contact point moves audibly. There is absolutely no creaking here.

    Oh, but wait, I should mention that I took about two minutes to adhere a small piece of cardboard (cut from the box) to each of the twelve feet to keep the rubber feet from squeaking on the hardwood floor. I would’ve done that anyway to protect the floor. Also, I placed some to act as bumpers on the parts of the frame that could contact the walls during grown-up activities. A little bit of foresight should go a long way there, I think.

    If the bed starts creaking after a few months, you should check that all the nuts are still tight. It is normal for those things to loosen up.

    3) This frame is not an eyesore. If it doesn’t look like a fancy bed for your master bedroom, then buy a bedskirt. It does look metal. And it has lots of under-the-bed storage space. That matches the item description and the photos.

    4) There are no brackets for head- or footboard attachment. Those are sold separately.

    5) My mattress doesn’t slide around. I’m not sure why that’s an issue for other people, and there aren’t any rails or listen lips to keep it in place, but it’s still not an issue.

    6) This product eliminates the need for a box spring. Some reviewers have said they feel like the princess and the pea because the mattress is so high when they use this frame plus a box spring. Also, there is no need to buy pieces of particle board to add extra support for the mattress (unless it is a foam mattress with absolutely no support for itself). The thin metal wires are strong enough for…
