The center support is not 80" long, instead it is designed to be several inches shorter. Just turn the center support up on it's 1" edge centering it between the headboard and foot board. Then start screwing the slats down to the center support. King size beds have 2 center supports as opposed to 1 in a Queen.
What is really cool, if you ever move your bed, you will not rack your bed because the uprights that slide into the bottom of the center support will collapse and you can knock them back into place with a broom handle or golf club. Pretty cool design! Once again unmatched in quality, purity, safety and design innovation.
"What is the difference between a Platform Bed and Foundation?"
A platform bed can save you money because you don't have to buy a metal bed frame and a new expensive bed. It is all inclusive. It can be set at any height for storage underneath.
A foundation is traditionally for people who have a headboard and footboard with rails, such as a sleigh bed.
Some people want the foundation with the adjustable legs because they like them recessed and the want the legs to be so high for storage underneath. If you need help determining the height you want your mattress to be, feel free to call us.
If you love storage, the Boxer Bed with a foot lift for storage is the best! Ton's of storage under your mattress. Including long bulky items such as ski's and fishing poles.
