  2. Line up the headboard cutouts with the holes in the back of the base.

    Note: Material will need piercing.

    Screw in the bolts with the white washer fed into the back of the headboard. 2 bolts are provided for each side


  3. Push in the 2 U clips, this will secure the 2 bases together.


  4. Use the plastic headed bolt to secure the lids together

How To Assemble Your Metal Ottoman Bed

Assembling the metal ottoman style base can be a little tricky. The steps outlined below should help you through each part of the process. Ideally, we advise 2 people put this together to help support/align parts whilst the other person screws in bolts etc. 

  1. Assemble the bed frame first. Headboard, siderails and footboard. Slot in the siderails attached to headboard and footboard. Nuts are already attached to the bolts. You will require a size 13’-14’ size spanner. It’s ideal if you place in the long black bar which goes inside the storage base. Bolts are already attached inside the side rails.
  2. Open the metal slatted frame and small rectangular box which contains the 2x small bars, 1x ‘U’ thin bar and 10x bolts. There are 6x regular bolts and 4x of the allen key style bolts. Once the metal slatted frame is opened, place the small black bars either side of the frame with the allen key bolts. Place the ‘U’ bar on one of the sides of the metal frame where you have placed the smaller black bar on the side. Note the ‘U’ bar only goes on one side of the frame.
  3. Fix the gas lift pistons in place – Note: If the cylinders do not align, then simply twist the hydraulic cylinders slowly until it aligns up.
  4. Place the metal frame on top of the bed frame. Note: Where the ‘U’ is that is the head side and frame only go on one way. The remaining 6x bolts go on top of frame. 3x on each side.
