I liked that this bedframe came with stationary feet instead of wheels, which helps the bed stay in one place. However, it looked a little flimsy when It was all put together. Really, putting the box springs in the frame seemed to help strengthen the frame overall. The feet are plastic and I was a little worried about the quality, but so far so good. I've been using it for a week with my queen sized bed and I've had no trouble with it so far.
One thing, though...just like another reviewer said, the middle stabilizer bar needs to be bolted to the bed frame and the bolts/nuts did not come with the frame. Luckily I had some laying around.
This is a new frame for me. All my prior frames had a weird bolt system the held the cross bars into place where you had to slide on the L-shaped bolt and then tighten a screw with pliers. Lots of trial and error in the beginning because you had to make sure you didn't set it too wide or tight for your mattress. It would loosen every few months and the frame never felt sturdy. Simply, this is just a snap and lock crossbar system. It has a diagram on the frame to tell you where to set it for a queen bed, so no guess work or measuring to get a perfect fit. Once locked, it doesn't wiggle or rattle. Once the frame is locked into place, you do have to add a center bar that attaches at the ends with a stardard nut and bolt, but it is very easy to attach. The added bonus is the attractive and sturdy leg caps that offer height, a sturdier platform and help prevent the old standard hard metal stub legs that are part of frame from harming and digging into any floor, and scratching surfaces, such as wood or tiled floors, beyond repair. A must have frame for all beds. Even if you already have a beautiful bed set, but have the old style frame, I recommend an upgrade to this frame.

This does the job. I like that it has a support in the middle and that it is on feet rather than casters. It was very easy to put together, but it was a little crooked. It doesn't really affect the bed, but there is a little space on the top of the right hand side and bottom of the left hand side (picture the frame as a parallellogram instead of a rectangle) You barely tell and a bedskirt hides it completely. I believe it still holds the box spring securely.
Also note this bed frame is adjustable to Twin or Full size.

The only reason I didn't give this a 5-star rating is that it squeaks at the END of the bed. (Like if you sit or even lean on the end of the bed.) It seems solid and sturdy and definitely stays in place.

OK, but what can you tell me about the height of the pre-drilled holes for a bolt-on headboard? How high do they measure from the floor?skunkywintergreen on Jun 27, 2013
Hello again skunkywintergreen, I apologize for not answering your question correctly. The slots range from 6 ¼” (center of bottom slot) to 8 ¾” (center of top slot) depending on what type of flooring the frame is sitting on. Sorry for any confusion we caused, and thanks again for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 28, 2013
From the picture of the item, I do not see how it is possible to attach a footboard. Can you please specify how this is possible?herhome on May 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you herhome for the opportunity to help you with the question about the Insta-lock Queen-size Glided Bedframe. If you look at the picture of the bed frame and enlarge it, there are two flat plates with holes in it on the front of the frame. Those plates are the mounting surfaces for a head board. They have a generic hole pattern to fit different applications. Thanks for your question and for shopping Overstock.com.

I'm sorry, but I was asking about attaching a FOOTboard. I see how the headboard can attach, but in an answer below you say a footboard can be attached. I don't see any bracket or attachment at the foot of the bed.herhome on May 21, 2013
Hi herhome, we see where the confusion lies and we apologize for the misinformation. The item can only accommodate a headboard and not a foot board. We apologize for the previous answers and hope this clears things up. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on May 22, 2013
