The trick is that you must press the left and right side cushions as far forward (toward the seat cushions) to release the back and allow it to lay flat. It's the same with the armrest sides. Just push as far forward as you can and then let if fall back into the flat position. There are no buttons.

Not at all. The support system of this furniture isn't like the 'old' futons with the mesh-style backing. It's a steel grid that has built-in center support, backed up with a center bar that connects the two halves of the sofa. It's very, very sturdy.

It doesn't need any added support. There is an aluminum frame with crossbars under the seat cushions. There are two of those crossbars a few inches apart down the middle, then another crossbar between those middle crossbars and end of frame crossbar. Hopefully you can picture what I'm saying. My teenage daughter and friends use the futon all the time. They love it and find it very comfortable. Since it's in the "game" room I haven't really sat on it much but for the few times I have it was comfortable to me too.

Question

Weight limit/sleeping

I Have read threw mutliple pages and seen that one person says its 300lb and i also saw one that says 600lb limit. Both of these people were DLP walmart suppliers. While in the sitting position I would like to know if two grown men would be able to sit on this without any problems.

Also im moving to a small house and my room is going to be alot smaller, Therefore im planning on buying this as a daily sleeper(with foam topper). I am about 6'-6'1 and after reading the length size its exactly 6'. I was wondering if anyone who reads this is 6' tall and sleep comfortably on this futon. Thanks for the answers in advance.

The mattress is a separate piece. You take it off and can fold it some and the frame folds up. It came in a box about 4 ft x 6 ft. Pulled it out, unfolded it, ready to go. My 19 year old son loves the one he got for Christmas.

to dissemble you would just need to unscrew the rods from the cushion. To make into a flat bed you will just need to pull forward than push back and unscrew and screw the feet for more back support depending on whether an adult or kid is sleeping on it

You can adjust the seat part so that it rises into arms. So when the "arms" are up, you lose some seating space

The outer end of each side of the bottom seat will adjust so there are arms, of course it reduces the bottom seat length when the "arms" are up.

If you're going to sleep on it every night for an extended period of time, I would suggest a thick mattress pad. It reminds me of sleeping on a hide-a-bed. You can feel the frame through the padding in spots.

So far I've had no issues. I like sleeping on this futon. There is a bar in the middle though that is uncomfortable if your butt is right in the middle. Depends on how you sleep also it is kind of short for the average person your feet might hang off a little if you are tall.
