Unpack your bed
When your new packed bed arrives, you should unpack it carefully. Do it in the room you want your bed to be situated. Unpack each item and put it on the floor. Situate everything in suitable position so that you can see and pick up any item during the assembly process.
Check it all
Then you should open the instruction and make sure that you are given every detail. List all the nuts and other details that you have received. Next, you should compare the resulting number to the specified number in the instruction. If there is some missing, call the shop where you bought the bed and tell about your problem. In the case, everything is okay you will be able to start assembling a bed frame.
Figure out what instruments exactly you are required. Make sure you own them all. If you do not have at least one of the demanded tools, buy it in a local instrument shop. You should have each needed instrument in order to attach all the details together.
Step by Step Assembly
We are aware of confusing instructions which all only complicate the task itself. In order to ease the bed frame assembly process, we provide you with step-by-step information.
Well, this one is about situating two legs. First of all, you need to find those 2 primary metal segments. Locate them both in a face-to-face way and leave between them some space.
Now you need to attach feet or wheels (it depends on what a bed frame model you bought) to the legs. Catch out the certain holes. They must be situated at the ends of the metal legs. If your bed is immobile, you are given feet, not wheels. Then attach those feet to each hole of the legs. If you assemble a mobile bed frame, you have to attach wheels to those metal legs with the help of a screw or a nut (according to the demands).
It is about the side arms. Look for those arms. Locate them separately. If the legs must be situated at the left and the right side, then the side metal arms must be at the top and bottom. Attach the arms to the legs with a screw and nuts as it is described in your instruction.
Now you need to attach your side arms together. There are the special holes for nuts. Find them and lock the side arms together. Everything you have to do is to push the nuts through the holes of two side arms and fix it. Do the same with left two side arms. Attach them with a screw.
Does your bed consist of any center support beam? If the answer is “yes”, this step must not be omissible in order to conduct the successful metal bed frame assembly. So, attach a foot or a wheel (it depends on the bed model) to the center support beam in advance. Only after that, you should attach the metal center support beam to the frame with the help of a screw and nuts.
Now you should place your bed frame and the headboard in the room, where they should be situated. Locate your headboard up against a back wall or another durable surface.
It is the right time for the headboard. So, make sure the board is fully extended and the legs, arms, and the beam are attached correctly. Then, put together the headboard and the frame. Fix them both with screws and nuts.
It is a turn of side rails. Find the side rails and place them separately, on the side legs. Attach the rails to the headboard and legs with a screw and nuts, if it is necessary. There are some bed models that do not need to be attached to side rails with a screw and nuts. So, if there are no holes for nuts in your side rails, most likely you should not make new holes.
It is about the baseboard. If your bed consists of the baseboard, attach it to the frame. Do it in according to the previous examples.
This is the last one. Well, now you attach board or beam guides to the side rails. Look through the instruction and imagine in what way everything should be done. In the easiest way, you will be obliged to attach everything with screws and nuts.
After the step 5, situate protective caps on the edge of the bed frame. If the new bed has metal corners you should cover them with protective caps or multiple layers of duct tape in order to avert any skin damages if you bump into one of the corners.
