Questions & Answers for Slumber 1 Slumber 1 Smart Base Steel Bed Frame, Twin/Full

Question

Is the width adjustable for an odd size mattress?

I would like to use this frame with an "antique full" width mattress of 48"

Is it possible to pull it out from the 39" narrow width to just 48" and lock it in, or is it strictly either 39" or 54"?

Thanks!

You need both pieces to create the twin and if you want a full you have to use the connection bars between the 2 pieces. Each side is about 1/2 the size of a twin matress.

No. Can't put a twin mattress on just one half. You need both just for the twin. The included connection bars are used to expand the frame for full sized configuration.
answered 4 years, 5 months ago

answer 5
No, The two halves can't be separated because the two halve initially make the twin frame WITHOUT extenders. To adjust it into a full you would have to pull open those two frames and add extenders which attach to one side of one frame and the another side of the other. The extenders are made of some very strong materials and latch on with ease. If you look at a picture the extenders can be seen coming down the middle horizontal.

No. The frame that you see in the picture is how the frame comes assembled for a twin bed. It is extremely supportive. To make it a full frame, you pull on each side and it widens. They send extra support clips to lock it in the full position. It is not like the old frames that are in two pieces and you can add a bar to make them larger.

No. The picture you see is for a twin bed. It is really supportive so that a boxspring is not necessary. To make it a full, you pull on each end and it widens. They supply you with additional beams that connect what looks like the two separate pieces.

This is one frame. It comes in two halves that will bolt directly together for to support a twin mattress. If you were to set a full matttress on this - the two halves are set further apart and steel spacers are placed between. good for now - and the apartment later.

I know some people bought this frame for 8" or higher memory foam mattress but I prefer 4" foam mattress. please give me some advice whether I have to buy additional plywood bed base for more even support to use this frame with my 4" memory foam bed.

There is no relationship between mattress height and whether it will work with this frame. For even support, I would recommend using plywood sheeting on the frame if you are not going to use a box spring.

We have a standard inner-spring mattress, not particularly thick but not memory foam either. I wouldn't think you'd need a plywood base if you have the frame at the smaller size option (Twin, Queen). If you have it at the larger size (Full, King) the plywood might be a good idea as there is less support for the mattress in the middle with the extender bars installed.

I don't think this would work with a 4" mattress. Probably the best solution would be to find a bunky board, like the ones used for bunkbeds (in leiu of a box springs) to put between the mattress & frame. I am guessing that the 4" mattress is probably a "topper" (I have one), and that it is not intended to be a mattress. I think it would slide through the slats.

It depends on how high you want your bed to be. It comes up 14", bed frame only. You can do either but I use just the mattress.

And your mattress will work on it, most likely.

You can use by itself or with box spring, but the frame is meant to be used without the boxed spring. The bed will be very high if you add the boxed spring.

Both box and mattress will "fit" but may be just a bit tall. The frame is about six inches higher than a regular frame so this small amount may not matter. Yes you can use ANY (full or twin) mattress but note that if you are buying something new - the mattress store wil convince you that your warranty may be voided if you don't buy the matching box. I did buy new and did not buy the box and am quite happy. I dont' think that I would mind the extra height of the box if it were put on the bed

I had to buy a queen/king size frame for two twin box springs and a king size mattress. I have this frame in every size. You do not have to have a box spring to use the frame. It will not be as high up but your mattress will be very high up if used with a box spring. It is great for my tall sons, but I prefer no box spring for my height. It will hold a lot of weight. That was the reason I bought them. They are very easy to set up too. You cannot store large, wide items under the bed due to the support frames.
