Step 1: Place it.
Start with unfolding the casing over the bed lining it up with the bed with the top of the casing up and unzip it. Once unzipped, fold the top of the casing so it is out of the way.
*The top of the casing DOES NOT detach from the base.
Step 2: Unpack it.
Fold sides of the casing around the foundation to expose the whole base of the casing. This is important to line up the latex layers with the casing seams around the bed.
Step 3: Unroll it.
Take the shrink wrapped layers out of the boxes starting with the densities you have chosen on the bottom. (If you prefer Firm on the bottom, start with that). Lay the shrink wrapped layer on the desired side and with scissors start to cut it open. Once the layer is open it will naturally unroll itself onto the bed. Align the edges of the latex with the casing edges. To move the layers, flop and roll them like spreading a sheet over a bed. This will ensure that the layers don't rip.
*The casings are all made smaller than the layers themselves to ensure that everything is snug.
Step 4: Keep Unrolling.
Keep placing the desired configuration of densities on the desired sides. Align the edges of the latex with the casing edges first. Then move to the middle to flatten out the layers if they are on top of each other. It is natural that the middle of the layers land on top of each other. This ensures that the middle of the mattress is stacked and offset from the other layers. It is important that the edges of the layers are lined up so the casing can go straight up and down without having bulges on the edges.
*If you don't have split layers (or a twin, Twin XL, or Full) you wont need to worry about the split layers.
Step 5: Cover it.
Once all layers are placed on the desired side and in the desired configuration pull the borders of the casing around the layers. Place the connected casing top over the mattress and align it as close to the zipper as possible.
Step 6: Zip it.
Zip up the casing making sure that the latex doesn't get caught in the zipper.
*While zipping the casing, it is easier to put a finger or hand in between the zipper and the rubber so the zipper doesn't get caught on latex, especially around the corners.
