I bought this foundation to replace box springs for a new hybrid king mattress. Needed something with a lower profile and more stable. Foundation came quickly and was relatively easy to assemble, but the wrench supplied is a joke. The nuts sit too deep in the hole to even access them with the wrench. A 1/2" deep socket with 3/8" drive is ideal for tightening the bolts. All the parts lined up exactly as expected. The only problem is that there are not enough slats to properly support a king mattress. There are 10 slats that are 2.5 inches wide, leaving gaps of 4.5". My mattress supplier recommended no more than 4". Several sites online recommended a maximum gap of 2.5". In order to address this problem, I bought eleven 1" x 3" x 6 ft white wood boards at Home Depot to fill in the gaps. These fit perfectly and left 1" gaps. (See photo showing original gap and gap after boards were added.) I had to sand the square corners of the new boards so they didn't dig into the mattress. The new boards were 3/4" think, but the slat boards with the foundation were 5/8" think, so there is a slight difference in height, but not enough to cause a problem. The result was exactly what I needed. Also, it's a good idea to put felt furniture pads between the bottom of the foundation and the supports in the bed. Otherwise, when getting in and out of bed, the foundation may squeak when it rubs on the supports. The felt pads eliminated this totally.
What an excellently designed product. Delivered to my home disassembled in an easy to manage package which allowed me to bring it into the bedroom by myself. Assembly was a snap and went without a problem. Slide the cover on and viola!! Provides excellent support for the mattress and the low profile doesn't make the height of the bed too high. And the price was reasonable. Quality product. Very very happy with my purchase.
Low profile is 4" less in height than the regular foundation. It fits on top of the metal bed frame and rises 4" from there. It is perfect for use with a pillow top mattress because it isn't as high from the floor to the top of the mattress. It is easy to put together. The bolt holes are already bored for you. The slats have pre drilled pilot holes making assembly quick and easy. The wood is good quality with no splintering. Great for assembly in a small space.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Easy to Install, Excellent Quality, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Nice Design, Perfect Size, Sturdy
The greatest thing about this product is the size of the shipping carton. I have the same problem many people have when ordering a Queen sized bed. The mattress fits, but I can't get the box spring into the room. Well this foundation comes in a box that is nine and a half inches wide. There is no problem getting it into my bedroom. This was a great replacement for my first box spring that didn't fit.it sets up easily.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
This foundation is solid, much like a platform. The queen size is accurate. It replaced our box spring, and made our "firm" 14" memory foam mattress even more "firm". The box spring allowed a bit of sag in places, which created some pressure points. And, with the metal frame, it was not really stable. This foundation spreads the weight evenly on the frame and keeps things very stable, much better than simple slats would. It also helps keep the fitted sheets in place better, since there's no "give" along the edges. We've only slept on it a couple of nights, but it seems to be more restful with less pressure points. It came with vary good instructions and everything needed for assembly. Went together in about 30 minutes. The cover has a cord in the bottom, allowing it to be tightened, preventing it from slipping loose and creeping up, and allowing the mattress to slide easily into place. Overall, a very good foundation, which will work well when I can get around to building a new frame. A good value.
