I bought a pair of these bed rails for my 93 year old, bed-ridden mother. They served many purposes: prevented falling out of bed, provided a grab bar when rolling from side to side, kept bedding and support pillows in place, provided stable support for hanging necessary items (wash cloth, bed controls, catheter bags, even a cup holder). Organizer pouch is removable so as not to block vision. Extending and retracting the rails was effortless. The ability to easily pivot the rail down, alongside the bed, allowed transfers in and out of bed to be unencumbered. Installation was easy. Product was strong and secure.
Even though I am ambulatory I have started having dreams that result in my falling out of bed. I LIKE IT BECAUSE: 1. It works! No more concern with falling out of bed. 2. It is of very solid construction. 3. It makes me feel safe. 4. It folds down and is not visible during the day. I DO NOT LIKE IT BECAUSE: 1. The Base Tubes ends stick up so far that I sit on them and hurt myself when getting in or out of bed. It would be nice if there was a smooth "shelf" spanning between them. If such a shelf was an optional accessory I would gladly pay extra for it. 2. I have to get up in the night to use the bathroom. Once the rail is locked upright I cannot reach/maneuver to unlock it to fold down when I need to get up in the night. Any suggestions?
This EZ Adjust Bed Rail is just what was needed. It was easy to install, the right size and the adjustability of width is great and the pockets on it are a big bonus. Glad to have it and recommend it.
