Before assembling, please note:

  • Screws and bolts are included in the box containing the gas lift pistons.
  • Single 3ft beds do not come with the middle bar/bent bar.
  • Hydraulic pistons are quite stiff in nature and may require mattress weight to go down the first time.


  1. Remove the headboard, footboard, and side rails from the packaging.
  2. Connect the headboard to the side rails by sliding in the brackets and securing the bolts*.
  3. Attach the footboard to the side rails using the same method.
  4. To affix the gas lift mechanism, loosen the bolts from the side rails.
  5. Position the gas lift mechanism and re-tighten the screws.
  6. Connect the hydraulic pistons to the mechanism and secure the nuts using an allen key.
  7. Join the middle bar to the side rails.
  8. Install the metal slats frame onto the gas lift mechanism.
