So it goes together easily and works just fine, although it's a little light which can be annoying. The problem is, those top boards are held on by plastic bits that you press into the metal frame. There is no way to remove them once they are in. Once you build this frame once, you're in for a nightmare trying to reuse it somewhere else.
This bed frame is light weight but still sturdy and super easy to set up. My son, who is now away at college, no longer wanted to sleep in his loft so this frame was the perfect solution as it does not need a box spring and is quite compact when not in use.
I looked at many options and read lots of reviews before purchasing two of these (queen size) to replace some old folding metal bed frames in a beach rental. These are so much nicer and I love the extra height of the frame. The price sure is right! Even though I had very little space to work in, assembly couldn't have been easier, and the directions are some of the clearest I've ever seen. They even provide you with an allen wrench - the only tool you'll need. At least one of the reviews I read stated that the mattress slides around on the frame, even with the sticky strips that come already attached to two of the slats. I didn't want anything sticky touching my mattress, so I didn't use them; instead I bought a 25 ft. roll of Rug Tape ($10 at Lowe's) for each frame and attached it to the slats (see photos). Problem solved! Be forewarned - the shipping box is pretty heavy, but I got it up two flights of stairs without TOO much of a problem (I'm a 54 y.o. fairly strong female).
