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

Question

Dicovered skinny leg is broke.

I bought the futon back in Feb of this year and barely have used the futon in the sitting position let alone in the bed position. As I went to discover while putting it into the bed position last night, one of the legs had been broken off.

Is this repairable? Can a part be sent so it can be fixed? What do I do?

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.

If the support legs on the back are positioned properly two people can sleep on it to properly support weight. However they have to be very slender. Not enough area to move that much.

Approximately 3 inches. I used a down comforter over the mattress for more sleep comfort. My 12-year-old great-grandson says it is comfortable for him. My adult son said if he had to sleep on it on a regular basis he would go to the fabric store and have a 1 inch sheet of foam cut to fit the sleep area.

4.5" exact. The futon is hard, I'm thinking to add padding under the upholstery. But I'm not using it to sleep.. I think it's too hard for sleeping on it every day.

All-Time Sleeper?

I weigh 145 lbs. and is about 5 ft. 3 in.
I can sleep pretty much anywhere, and I'm perfectly comfortable with sleeping on couches. I sleep really easily, so, would this futon be good to sleep on every night? And still sit on it during the day?

If you aren't picky like I am, which it seems like you aren't because I am used to sleeping on couches, too, then I would recommend it. I sleep on it every night and I am 200 lbs, 5'11". The middle is a little hard, so I put a comforter down on the bed and it did the trick. Hope this helped!

ive been sleeping on this every night for about a year and a half and I weight A LOT more than you. i would recommend getting a 3" memory foam topper pad and then yes you can sleep on it every night otherwise it feels kinda hard. You can sit on it during the day but i wouldnt fold it up and lay it flat every single day, it could wear it out and break it over time. i bought 2, one is as a couch and one is for my bed in my little studio apartment. I just noticed there is another one that looks similar to this on walmart.com on sale for $99 so you may want to go that route as its cheaper. Def get the memory foam pad though either way.

Absolutly not...I bought this for my daughter to sleep on until I could afford a new bed for her. She weighed under 100lbs and can sleep anywhere also. The futon flattened so that you could feel the support bars under you very fast. She had a hard time sleeping after only 2 weeks. Sitting on it was okay as long as you didnt sit in the middle.

Yes. It will just fit. Also note that this thing is SUPER easy to disassemble, and the additional set of legs fold into the futon. You could easily tilt this on its back and store it in the trailer that way when you are on the move.
