Overview of this very interesting installation.
Here are some picture from my installation of the split king frames. I was able to make it work to gain access to the storage access door without having to modify the frames. The process is a little cumbersome but the storage access door is only opened a few times a year. In addition to storage, there are also some mechanical and electrical devices in this area that may need access if a problem arises.
To make it work, I installed hinges on the outside of the frame so the frames lift-up from the side and then secured up with a bungee cord or a prop. These hinges keep the frames from moving horizontally and vertically (on the outside). To hold the frames down to the platform, I added rubber latches on each end.
Here is the procedure to gain access to storage door;
- Remove all bedding and mattresses
- Remove both side stoppers at the head location
- Disconnect all (4) latches on each frame at the foot and head locations
- Raise each frame and secure with bungee cord or wood prop
- Open storage access door.”
