    High Quality - Feeling Very Secure Now
    The item took less than 15 minutes to install. Two legs to attach with supplied tool then attach to bed. I had fallen out of bed. Now no more worries! It is a tad bit hard to make up bed around the rails but well worth the protection I get.

      Dependent Dad
      I bought this to help alleviate the stress between my 93 year old father and myself. He was super independent prior to a fall a month ago and post surgery he transformed into a toddler. This has helped me tremendously because once he lets go of the security of his walker, he turns into dead weight in my arms. This helps him to not rely on me completely and support him pulling his weight. I use it extended when he gets in from the middle of his bed and then close it while he's sleeping. We don't extend it to get him out of bed. I recommend it for smaller beds and for lighter weight people. It does lift the mattress a bit as you're using all of your weight to hold on to it, but nothing to be concerned about as long as you have it secured and the straps are as tight as you can get them. Worth the money and I'm sure I wil find a use for it after he no longer needs it. It encourages his confidence and removes his fears if he has to do it alone.

        Keeps people safe!
        My husband falls out of bed getting serious bruises. Adjustable bed rail allows him to get up and go to the bathroom, but keeps him safe from falling out of bed. I sleep better too, knowing he’s safe.

              I would definitely buy this product again. Should gave done
              I bought the extend a rail to keep my disabled son who has dementia from slipping off the bed because once he is down on floor , he is not able to help us lift him up. Since getting rail, he had actually tended to sleep pretty straight now and not too close to the edge. Live it, should have gotten it sooner! Love it!

                Served our purpose
                We needed to use it at the bottom of bed so my dad could push on it with his feet to scoot himself up in the bed after coming home from hospital. It's supposed to go on the side but it worked out for him this way.
