User Instructions

 The bed deck can mount at 11 different heights. To adjust your bed deck height:

  1.  The bed must be on the floor and not bunked or lofted.
  2. Remove mattress.
  3. Start with either the headboard or footboard. With two hands, grab the center of bed deck and lift to disengage metal teeth from the pin channel. Re-engage metal teeth into pin channel at the new height. Tip: to ensure both side rails are engaged at the same height, count the pin channels from the top.
  4. Repeat action with the other side.
  5. The mattress can now be put back on the bed.

 To bunk your beds:

  1. For the lower bed, adjust the bed deck to the desired height by following instructions above. For the upper bed, remove guard rail and adjust the bed deck to the desired height by following instructions above.
  2. With the mattress still removed, position the lower bed frame where you would like to have your bunk bed.
  3. Insert steel pins in each of the four bed posts.
  4. Place the upper bed on top of the lower bed. The steel pins provide a secure connection at each post. Tip: two people must be used to bunk the beds.
  5. Double check that all steel pins are securing the two beds together at each bed post.
  6. Mattresses and guard rails can now be put back on the beds.

To loft your bed:

    1. Remove guard rail and adjust the bed deck to the desired height by following instructions above. 
    2. Position the loft kit where you would like to have your bed.
    3. Secure the stabilizer rail by sliding the lock mechanism into the pin channel. Tip: install the stabilizer rail in the third and sixth pin location(s) from the top of the headboard channel for the most stable application
    4. Insert steel pins in each of the four bed posts.
    5. Place the bed on top of the loft kit. The steel pins provide a secure connection at each post. Tip: two people must be used to loft the bed.
    6. Double check that the steel pins are securing the two beds together at each post. 
    7. The mattress and guard rail can now be put back on the bed.

Care

Minimum effort is required in the care for your Tool Free Bed, as the ultra-violet cured finish is much harder than conventional finishes. The finish provides superior resistance to a wide variety of common liquids that stain or damage other finishes. Most dirt, grease, pen marks and liquid spills can be removed with liquid dishwashing detergent.
