Bed Leg Installation Instructions
Last Updated: 05/12/2008
Universal Bedleg Installation
Screwing in the Base PlateThe Universal Bedleg® System easily attaches to the box spring utilizing two components: the threaded base plate and the bed leg. The threaded base plate installs directly onto the box spring and the leg simply screws into the threaded area of the base plate completing the installation. Once the base plate is secured to the box spring using a power screwdriver, consumers can then very easily resize the height of their beds without any tools by simply attaching a different size leg.

Detailed Installation Instructions:Step 1 Using a Queen Size Set.  This Edge Should Face Outside Edge of Box Spring

IMPORTANT: Verify that your side rails meet the minimum requirements of a finished width of no less than 2 1/4". We recommend the box spring side and center rails be of high quality kiln dried wood of 1" x 4" (finished size of 3/4 " x 3 1/4"). For these installations the outside set of screw holes should be used. With rails of less dimension, the inside set of screw holes ( 1 1/4" o.c. ) should be used. Minimum actual rail dimension must be 2.1/4". Verify that your boxspring rails are of sufficient size to adequately accept the Universal Bedlegs® base plate as indicated.

Screw in the Base PlateSTEP ONE: Align the Universal Bedleg® base plate so that it is six inches from the top of the boxspring, as indicated in the diagram on the left. The side of the base plate with 2 holes should face the outside edge of the boxspring, as indicated in the diagram on the left. Determine which set of holes you will use by measuring the width of your boxspring rail. If your rails are a finished width of 3/4" x 3 1/4", use the outside set of screw holes. For rails of lesser dimension, use the inside set of screw holes.Screw in the Bed Leg

STEP TWO: Using a power screw driver, mount the plate to the boxspring using the supplied hardware. USE ONLY 4 SCREWS PER PLATE. (Refer to photo on left)

STEP THREE: Hand twist the threaded leg stem into the base plate. (Refer to photo on right)
