Slats need some serious help
 from Las Vegas, NV,  Sep 14, 2012

This bed frame was ordered because I wanted a simple platform style bed with no crazy headboard. I wanted something simple that would match all my furniture - so this seemed to fit the bill. First let me say...the company used to ship this product banged the heck out of the boxes. They were ripped and gashed, Styrofoam flying everywhere. There was only slight damage to the frame itself so I wasn't too worried...but they need to take better care when shipping these products! The frame itself was simple to put together. Very easy, very self explanatory. My issue is with the slats. They are HORRIBLE! This is by far the worst slat system I have ever seen in a bed. They give you 39 dinky little pieces of cheap pressed wood pine that are warped like nobody's business and splinter like crazy. They also connect with cheap plastic connectors that the wood pop out of constantly. My small 5lb CAT jumped on the bed and it caused two of these slats to slip. Didn't matter which direction we put them - bend up or down - they popped out. The frame is also too wide and not quite long I'll be making a trip to the hardware store to purchase some plywood to place under the mattress. For the most part the bed is...OK. I don't know how safe I'm going to feel sleeping in it tonight as the slats keep popping off. I have a memory foam mattress and no box spring, so there isn't a whole lot of weight on the slats themselves. Just be mindful that if you purchase this frame your mattress probably won't fit right and the slats are less than useless. Measure it out and head to the closest store to by some lumber to use as a base rather than the slats. There are good supportive railings underneath, so it should do the trick.
