Questions & Answers for Mainstays Mainstays Contempo Futon Sofa Bed, Multiple Colors

Question

Can the back part of the futon product split?

I can see that the bottom part can bend its edges upward but, concerning the back part, is it able to split in two so that one half of the futon could be lying down flat while the other half's back is bent upward?

Yes they can. The backs are independent of each other. However they don't fold at the edges like the seating area. The edges that act as a armrest or elevated headrest.

Probably not. If your talking about in the box before putting it together, it was quite large and pretty heavy. Looking at a standard house door, the box comes up to about 3 quarters of the way from the bottom, and it's fairly wide.

Question

In seating position, With both arms up, what is the length?

I know the back stays the same, which isn't a problem, But I have a radiator a little further out from the wall, and depending on the length, it may fit as the arms would be raised above the radiator. So whats the length from arm upward, to the other arm upward?
Thanks

Take about 5 inches off of the total length from arm to arm. BUT, please note that the back of the futon is still the same length after raising both arms. There are different angles at which the arms can incline, too.

so the connector rods go in and fit the four holes, I fixed one end of both the connector rods - screwed the bolts and then slid into the second part and then fixed the other end, seems to be OK

Just slide the connector in so can see the holes. Tip the futon over and put the connectors in. The holes on the connector are on one side...slide in , line up and put screws in....

There are two bars with four holes, 8 screws. You need to lay them down flat, cushion facing down. Then insert the 2 steel bars with 4 holes, screw them in all holes, then that's it. The four legs are the easiest to install.

The futon is about 40" x 72", and a full size is 53" x 75". Personally, I don't think you can sleep two adults on it, never mind comfortably, but if you want to try, they better enjoy sleeping very close together.

Aluminum/metal frame and some other framing to the backside off all cushions and encased within the cover, but can't see it to describe it in better detail. Aluminum/metal frame under the seating area which the legs are attached to which is in addition to the internal framing within the cushions. Pretty sturdy but does specify a limit of 300 pounds.
