Let's start out by saying that my husband and I together weigh in around 650 lbs. Also, our mattress is one of those big, huge, thick, HEAVY pillowtop deals that two people can't even pick up. We have been through more than one bed frame as you can imagine. I was always uneasy laying in bed wondering if this turn or that turn would mean hitting the floor. We have been through two in the last couple of years. I was looking at having to buy an expensive platform bed when I ran across this product. It says it will hold 1200 lbs!
We have a king size bed so I looked at the queen/king version. After reading the specifications on both, I made several calculations (which I won't bore you with) I decided to buy two of the single frames insead of the one king.
Shipping Site to Store for free was a money saver in itself. Set up was a breeze. Quick, fast, and easy.
We connected the two frames together with plastic tie strips (easy to find just about anywhere) to keep them from seperating. After we wrestled the mattress on the frame, you could still see the frame on the sides (this was a possibility considering I chose the twins over the king). After another quick calculation, we took the mattress off, turned the frames sideways, and WHALA, perfection!
Now the only drawback to this position is your storage area runs long ways instead of sideways. So we just store items we don't need on a regular basis in the far back.
I'm sure you are wondering why all this trouble? Because honey, you could drive a truck up on that bed and it ain't going nowhere, lol. We jump around, move around, play, sit on the sides, have the kids wrestling with us and NO MORE FEAR!
Very sturdy and economical! Every night I get into bed, I smile, knowing I can relax and enjoy my rest.
I will be buying more for both of my children's rooms.
Just to let all of you concerned people know, my children are of healthy weight and I go to great lengths to ensure they maintain a healthy eating lifestyle.
