Question

Will it fit inside a wooden bed frame

I have an antique bed frome with wooden slots. Will this metal frame fit inside my wooden frame if I remove all the slots?

Also, is this meant to be used as a temporary guest bed or with a permanent bed?

answer 1
I can answer the second question. This is meant to be a permanent support frame. But it's pretty easy to put together or disassemble, so you could use it temporarily and knock it down when it wasn't needed. The box it ships in is 1/4 the size of a twin mattress, give or take, so storage space needed would be minimal.

answer 2
I suspect not, but hope you can get more answers to give you more hope.

An antique bed frame is sometimes a very tight fit for the mattress itself but to get this new frame set down in the middle of the old frame may be quite a trick. She slat support edges will take up room that the new frame will want to occupy. I know of a particular antique bed frame that I would gladly rebuild around this frame just to not have to wrestle with getting the mattress into the old antique. But the key word would be "rebuild".

No, it will not fit inside your wooden bed frame. Not recommended.

I personally use this bed as a permament bed. However, because of the easy to fold style, it definitely would make an excellent temporary guest bed.

There are a pair of large screws with wing-nuts that attach both halves of the frame together. I use it this way, because a full-size mattress is too big for my dorm, I have to use a twin. I've had it for a month, and it's been completely solid.

Yes!! This frame is for you! Each side of the frame simply unfolds and then you attach four diagnal supports to small bolts and tighten the wingnuts. I would recommend - some wire cutters or maybe even toenail clippers to cut the plastic ties holding the new frame together in the box and possibly a small hammer or rubber mallet (or anything similar) to "encourage" the diagnal support to hook on the bolt. But no fear - this frame is one you can easily do. No other wrenches - screwdrivers or anything needed.

Problems with using the connectors as a full size

I have a full size bed that has a wooden frame all the way around it. When I put the two springs and try to attatch the connectors, they won't connect because they are about 2 inches to long. I measured the connectors and they are 16 inches, I was wondering if maybe they gave me the queen/king connectors. If someone could measure their connectors for a Twin/Full and let me know. I love this old bed and I have the foundation set 2 inches from each side and about a 4 inch gap in the middle because the connectors won't work. I am afraid the mattress may sag. Any help on my problem???

Bought mine and set it up yesterday. my connectors are also 16" long, Since I'm using a futon matress, I simply connected to one edge of one side of frame and then to the smaller inside wire on the 2nd frame, which worked better for me in the very small area I had to work with to place this bed.

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

The twin is what's shown...to get the full size you put in the 7 or 8 extension bars down the middle.
As far as the mattress fitting, I would say compare the length/width of the futon mattress to the length/width of a normal twin or full size mattress. Our full size mattress fits perfectly on the full setting for the frame.
