I would say you can't. The "mattress" is the sofa cushions and they are permanently attached to the frame. This is NOT as futon. It's a fold down sofa.

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?

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.

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.
