The middle connector that should slide down between twin beds pops up and is a bit lumpy but is more comfortable than using an air bed. Nice quality material, but would recommend adding a bed topper for best comfort. I bought a big box to store it in as it does not fold up to store.
We read that other mattress connector get all knotted up so we were a little concerned. But we didn't want to spend the money on an entire bed when we had "inherited" two brand new single beds. The secret was to buy a mattress topper, I think. We don't even notice that it's two bed put together. We're thrilled to death!
This item is hardly better than similar ones costing half as much, or less. Quality of the piece that goes between the mattresses is poor and does not appear that it will wear well. If you have heavy memory foam twin mattresses, as we do, you may not need it at all. We returned it, which is a bit of a hassle because by the time it reached us, the box it came in was too damaged to be be reused for return shipping. This meant a trip to purchase new box plus the return UPS fees.
this is the most expensive of these type of mattress connector pads, but seemed the best reviewed so I bought it. It has a big foam rubber strip attached to the underside of the pad that fits between the mattresses so that they can function as a big Cal King bed. It worked well for us and results in a very comfortable and functional bed. And easy to break down back into twin beds any time if you have company.
When I bought this product I knew that the gap in my beds was about 3-4 inches with the bed frames touching. I had some problems adjusting this to make one solid surface that didn't sink. I ended up lifting one mattress on the bed frame, putting the pad between, and then pushing the mattresses together. Once I did this There was a slight rise on one side of the bed. When you laid down there was no sinking and there was not a huge bump. It ended up being a very comfortable, and I ended up sleeping in the crack all weekend. Didnt even notice.

I've read some reviews, and Yes it puffs up in the middle. I covered it with an additional King Mattress pad. and it works better. My suggestions is, if some kind of weights were installed on the center foam connector part, it could and would be flatter. but folks, remember its still a 2 twin beds, not a King Mattress. so Yes this product works.
Great product so happy I found it. I had bought a new sleep number bed, split king, didn't think the gap in between would bother me. but the mattresses would slowly moved apart. This makes a huge difference. Everything stays together now. Can't even tell it a split king now. I would definitely recommend this item to anyone looking for the answer to that ever widening, cuddle separating gap.
Pros: Easy to install. Adds comfort. Cons: It doesn't reach all the way across. It's short about and 1 1/2 inches on each side. I'm hoping this isn't awkward for our guests. Be sure to have a LARGE container to store this connecter in if it's not staying on the bed. It does not fold back down.
This product was the answer to my guest bed problem. No one ever wanted the guest bedroom with the twin beds. I ordered your twin bed converter and the gap is filled between the beds securely by this high quality mattress cover. I was surprised that the thick comfy pad itself is covered and has heavy straps to hold it in place. I have seen this mattress cover on other sites for almost twice the price I found on Overstock. Good buy.
We were looking for a cheap fix for needing a new mattress and this served its purpose. We had two nearly new twins and instead of buying a new king mattress for a couple thousand dollars, we spent $150 on this. It does leave a bump down the middle of the two twins but we only put it on a couple weeks ago. I think that will press down eventually but even if it doesn't it was a good price compared to the alternative. Overall, it is comfortable and serves its purpose. A word of caution to anyone wanting to make two twins into a king: twin mattresses are 4 inches shorter than a king so your sheets fit a little looser and it looks a little funny between your footboard and headboard. I didn't know that but it still works.
Material covering pad stiff and scratchy. Foam strip for between mattresses does not fit smoothly between mattresses. It is also not quite wide enough to cover both twin mattresses. Will have to puchase additional topper to go over this one to make beds comfortable. Should have spent more money on product I could see and feel!
