I purchased this box spring protector after being given a bed for my guestroom. I wanted to both protect my family from possible fleas ( my gifter had a dog) as well as protect my guest room in the case guests pick up bed bugs elsewhere. I have been shopping for one for my main bed for several months. This item was the most reasonable price I have found. However, it was not made out of plastic which really sold me on the purchase. I do not like the smell of plastics or the crinkle on a bed. It fit well on my large box spring. However, it is important to read the directions for installation first and to follow them. The protector requires two persons to slip on or the directions indicate it could tear. My husband helped me. Once on, it was easy to zip up and fits snugly, so it does not interfere with making the bed. A very good value purchase. I will buy from this company again when I purchase a box spring protector for my own bedroom. It was delivered very promptly.
My sister's boyfriend brought bed bugs to our house (her bed) and it took about 3 months to figure out the problem because she would apply Elimite for scabies and it would help for about 3 weeks each time. Finally she found some bugs and we figured it out. We dumped the mattress and box spring, cleaned all the linens and she cleaned the room, looking for more bugs (couldn't find any). Then we got a new mattress/box spring and bought the Protect-A-Bed covers to protect them just in case the problem was not solved with throwing out the mattress. It has been 3 weeks now and no more bugs!
I have to admit that the packaging did have a huge warning that it would easily rip if in contact with a sharp bedframe. Unfortunately, it ripped even though we were being very careful. It is also somewhat baggy in the fit on the boxspring we have. Overall, I think it was more expensive than it should have been and much too fragile. A really good cover should not tear as if it were made of tissue paper. This was a bad deal overall.
This product was bought for a bedbug problem. I bought another cheaper one previously but it kept ripping and wasn't worth much of anything. This product seems very well made and should hold up keeping the bedbugs in or out just like I want it to. Very pleased, well made product.

It was easy enough to put on with one person. I don't think I snagged any part of it, but I guess I'll have to find out if I get bitten again! It's a little baggy but I'm less concerned about the aesthetic, and more concerned by starving some buggies.
I found that the matress cover is a conducter of heat for me. The pillow cases made the pillows stiff. I would not recommend any of thiese products. I Thought that they were water proof material, in stead it has a coating of plastic. I had covers that were water proof and they were not plastic.
King size only came with one twin??? They charge more for the king size yet only one twin arrived. I contacted customer support and they said that is how it comes. King box springs are always 2 twins. Why would I pay more for a twin than queen size? No amount of logic corrected the problem. I will have to return.
