Step 1: Place it.
Start with the borders of your bed. Lay them out in the space front side down so you can align the corners.
Step 2: Connect it.
Connect the borders together by sliding them together at both ends of each border. The borders will need to be squared up for all corners to glide and connect smoothly.
Step 3: Brace it.
If you have a Queen, King or California King, place the center support piece in the middle with the detachable feet spaced evenly apart from one another
Step 4: Slat it.
Place the slats starting from head & the foot of the bed. Leave a 4 inch (roughly the width of a fist) gap between each one.
Step 5: Drill it.
With the included screws and drill bit, drill the slats down into the middle brace and the borders.
You are finished!

The center support is not 80" long, instead it is designed to be several inches shorter. Just turn the center support up on it's 1" edge centering it between the headboard and footboard. Then start screwing the slats down to the center support. King size beds have 2 center supports as opposed to 1 in a Queen.
What is really cool, if you ever move your bed, you will not rack your bed because the uprights that slide into the bottom of the center support will collapse and you can knock them back into place with a broom handle or golf club. Pretty cool design! Once again unmatched in quality, purity, safety and design innovation.
"What is the difference between a Platform Bed and Foundation?"
A platform bed can save you money because you don't have to buy a metal bed frame and a new expensive bed. It is all inclusive. It can be set at any height for storage underneath.
A foundation is traditionally for people who have a headboard and footboard with rails, such as a sleigh bed.
Some people want the foundation with the adjustable legs because they like them recessed and the want the legs to be so high for storage underneath. If you need help determining the height you want your mattress to be, feel free to call us.
If you love storage, the Boxer Bed with a foot lift for storage is the best! Ton's of storage under your mattress. Including long bulky items such as ski's and fishing poles.
