How To Assemble Your Metal Ottoman Bed

Assembling the metal ottoman style base can be a little tricky. The steps outlined below should help you through each part of the process. Ideally, we advise 2 people put this together to help support/align parts whilst the other person screws in bolts etc. 

1. Assemble bedframe first. Headboard, siderails and footboard. Slot in the siderails attached to headboard and footboard. Nuts are already on the bolts. You will require a size 13 or 14 size spanner. It be ideal if you place in the black base boards along with the long black bar which goes inside the storage area. Bolts are already on the inside of the side rails


2. open up the metal slat frame and the small brown box which contains 2x small bars, 1x “U” thin bar and 10x bolts. 6X are normal and 4x are allen key bolts. The metal slat frame opens up. Place the small black bars either side of the frame with the allen key bolts. Place the “u” bar on one of the sides of the metal frame where you have placed the small black bars on the side. Note It only goes on one side on the frame.



3. fix the gaslift pistons in place - Note if the cylinders don't align then simply twist the hydraulic cylinder slowly so it aligns

4. place the metal frame on top of the frame. Note that where the “u” is thats the head side and frame only goes on one way. The remaining 6x bolts go on top of frame. 3X each side.

Split headboards may come in either a horizontal or vertical split depending on the type of bed purchased. We build and quality check all split headboards before packing to ensure all bolts and parts are correctly aligned. The below steps outline how to easily assemble your split headboard.

The split headboard is to be assembled fully before assembling the rest of the bed.

  1.  Remove any packaging and place the headboard front facing the floor.
  2. Line up the headboard halves and screw the bolts and nuts into the predrilled holes located behind the fabric backing.
  3. Some split headboards come with an additional wooden support plank. Place the plank on top of the predrilled holes on the back of the headboard and screw in the bolts. If the holes don’t align flip/rotate the wooden plank and try again.
