I bought this bed for my son's first apartment. It is great - is lightweight, easy to put together, has good room underneath, and works well with his 8" memory foam mattress. But - DO NOT move it once it is in place.. The legs collapse - the middle and end legs fold down in one direction and the legs on the other end collapse in the other direction.
I purchased this in a queen size for my 128lb son. He has been sleeping on it since 11/30. I just received a smaller version of it today and when I went to move his bed, I discovered that the entire frame on one side is all bent. The mattress on top of it is now sagging where the frame bent and now I have to buy a whole new complete bed and frame set. This frame absolutely cannot be used without a foundation . Do not think it can be used as a platform bed! Not durable or for long - term use! Maybe good enough for an occasional overnight guest only. An adult of less than 130 lbs should have been able to sleep on this in the way it was advertised without the frame bending the way it did!
As basic as they come, which wouldn't bother me if it hadn't have broken within 2 months of using it. The legs in the middle, where the platform hinges, do not stay upright. The plastic piece where the platform rests on the legs is tiny and flimsy, and split on both sides after a month or two. This means that if I move the bed at all (i.e. for cleaning, changing sheets, sex), the middle legs start to fold up and the bed goes down with it. Sometimes it just starts to sink under the weight of two adults without moving at all. I have to take the mattress off the bed and fix it by hand once every two weeks at least - it's pretty difficult to do this in my small bedroom with a heavy mattress.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Fine
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Cheaply made, but functional except for this problem with the legs
I bought this frame to keep my memory foam mattress off the floor. It does the job, so I'm pretty happy with it. I like that it is easy to take a part and store if necessary. What I am slightly annoyed with, is that there's no guard for the mattress so it can move if I just push the mattress slightly. It slides from the frame. I can't move the frame and the mattress together! Or, if I'm sitting on the bed with my back against the wall, if I scoot forward with my body, sometimes the mattress slides forward, too. Other than that, this is a good frame for the price or good for someone who moves around a lot.
The frame is very sturdy and easy to set up. It does make your bed much higher off the ground than standard frames but I like my bed high so it's better (it's now 29" from the floor). It was easy to put together, just align the screws and that's it, plus the fact that it's portable makes it easy to move from room to room or for an overall move to another location outside of the home. Gives you PLENTY of underbed storage space. Definitely a great bargain!
Very sturdy bed frame. It's unbelievably easy to put up and take down. The bed sits high enough that it provides lots of storage space underneath. I got this same frame for my other son and now for my oldest son. They are quite hard on furniture and big guys but these have been working out well. Would definitely recommend.
I wanted to get rid of my box spring and still be able to use my mid-century headboard, so I got this item, and splurged on the bracket set. It went together with little trouble. There are two sides that fold out, and then screw together with thumb screws, so no tools were required, though I grabbed a vice grips to really tack them together. The brackets went on without any trouble and matched up perfectly to the holes in my headboard, originally for a much shorter headboard.
In addition to that, it arrived at my apartment three days ahead of schedule!
The only thing I don't particularly love is the look, which is an easy fix, and I'll be getting a bed skirt for that as soon as I decide on a color.
Purchased for a double size mattress. Very easy to put together. Arrived in a flat box. Ample storage space underneath is a huge plus. We did add our own felt pads to the feet because we are using on a hardwood floor.
How much weight does the frame support? Will it hold 300-350 lbs + the mattress weight?markofgrace on Aug 21, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Do you need a boxspring or something or can I put a mattress directly on this?ngutkind on Jul 20, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello ngutkind, a box spring is not needed. You can use a conventional, futon, or memory foam mattresses with this frame. Thank you for shopping with us. Vicki Hoverstockcustomercare2 on Jul 23, 2014
I put my mattress directly on the frame. I don't feel that you would need a box spring at all. The height of the frame would also make a box spring impractical for the average height person.darylpaul76 on Jul 24, 2014
We put a memory foam mattress directly on the frame. No box spring is required.paworkingmom on Aug 13, 2014
I am a woman with some knowledgeability of putting some things together. Is it difficult to do? Can I know exactly when it would be delivered as I need to have my platform removed for the new one.

It's super easy to put together. Just unfold both sides and click them together.cgould000 on Jul 8, 2014
These pieces are very easy to put together. You may need a screw driver, just to attach the two sections together with a nut and bolt, and that will take you five minutes or so. There is no other assembly required.paulpl on Jul 11, 2014
Super easy. as others have said, just unfold the pieces and use the bolts provided to tighten the pieces together. You'll do fine.911rn on Jul 17, 2014
Very easy to assemble, take the two pieces out of the box, unfold the legs, attach the two single frames with included screws, and now you have a double bed frame that does not require a box spring. You can slo detach them for two single mattress frames.darylpaul76 on Jul 24, 2014
Very easy to put together. The box is heavy and an awkward size so get help if you are carrying up a flight of stairs. This was my first purchase from Overstock and everything arrived exactly when they said it would.paworkingmom on Aug 13, 2014

I would not attempt to unless it's a faux sleigh bed that attaches a sleigh bed style headboard and end. The side rails are average length so trying to put into a sleigh bed frame as support will probable leave you short, literally.darylpaul76 on Jul 24, 2014

Yes its easy to move, very light and it seperates in the middle and also folds which is awesome.adarbee30 on Mar 24, 2014
Measure the height and length of a standard double bed frame and you'll have your answer. This product is completely standard size frame but designed for heavier weight and use without a box spring. I think it will be higher that the bed height the your vehicle however.darylpaul76 on Jul 24, 2014

no wheels but the mattress can be moved on the frame for wall clearancefithstreet on Jan 9, 2014
there are no wheels but it does not interfere with changing bedding unless it is positioned against the wall. I would recommend placing abit away from wall. It is also very comfortable. If considering purchasing the underbed storage units as well they are very difficult to access if on a carpeted area as they have no wheels either.nccust1 on Jan 11, 2014
no wheels but its super light and you can move the whole thing or pull the mattress.jenniferc26 on Jan 28, 2014
No wheels. It's not that heavy.vabeachmom2 on Feb 25, 2014
I am happy with my purchase of the full size foldable bed but I have been unsuccessful with a headboard which fits. Does the manufacturer recommend a particular type?

Thank you richard70 for the opportunity to help you with the DuraBed Full-size Steel Foldable Platform Bed.

it folds top to bottom without a mattress; it's very easy but probably too heavy for a seniorrichard70 on Nov 3, 2013
It came in two cot size pieces for my full size double. Made it easy to get each piece upstairs separately as I couldn't have carried it upstairs if it had been one piece. You wouldn't fold it with a mattress on it. It only folds in half for shipping or moving. It took 2 seconds to put together and is very sturdy.vabeachmom2 on Nov 6, 2013

I have two cot-size twin mattresses. Can this frame be used apart as two separate beds?westieemma on May 11, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I can't speak to the size requirements (measure your cots, then divide the measurements of this bed in half to check this yourself), but I can confirm that each side of this bed will stand by itself. You would just not screw them together. So, if the size is right, it should work. There's also a queen-sized version of this, I think, so if the double is not big enough, check that one out.dbai on May 14, 2013
Cot size and twin size are two entirely different sizes. One-half of this is cot size, which is too small for a twin size mattress.vabeachmom2 on Nov 6, 2013
