Two 2 – motor custom Adjustable systems (each 28.5 X 76 inch) . Independently adjustable systems with 10 double slats to firm up or soften the lumbar region. Piano hinge to lift platform to access storage is 47.5 inches from the headboard. To continue to access the storage compartment, cut the external frame 28.5 inches from the foot of the adjustable bed. The upper 47.5 inches of the external frame is screwed on the fixed upper platform with four L-shape brackets for each adjustable bed that are pre – installed. This allows the lower platform to be lifted up, as per normal, to access the storage area, without the whole adjustable bed being lifted off the platform.

Before settling in bed!
The platform and headboard are ready for the adjustable beds.
Notice that the side drawers are in a similar straight line position as the sides of the platform. We narrowed the adjustable bed so there was an air gap from the adjustable bed to the side table to minimize the adjustable grazing the side table when it was raised.
Because the hinge location was close to the end of the foot section, we cut the external frame so that the upper external frame could be screwed on the fixed upper platform. This allowed the lower external frame to be screwed on the platform section that is lifted for access to storage. The black round bar in the lower section is where two black plastic feet are placed to pivot and support the lower foot section. Notice how we can curl the lower foot section upwards to allow the raising of the foot section/platform to access the storage compartment.
Srewing down the foot sections on the platform with L-shape brackets supplied by Axel Bloom. See example of bracket on the lower left external frame.
The plastic feet are flush and located at the left and right sides of the foot section (See the black flush foot near the hands of the man with green shirt). The ends of the feet are cups which then rest on the black rod. When the foot section is raised, the feet pivot on the black rod and provide more support in case someone sits on the foot section when it is raised.
To minimize the protrusion of the edge of the adjustable frame at the bottom edge, we reduced the length of the adjustable bed.
Both bottom sections curled over the two secured adjustable bed frames. To access the storage compartment, lift the foot section up normally.
Storage compartment is open.
Shows the intermediate position as one raises the lower platform.
The blue stickers show where one places the side and foot stoppers. White box is the transformer which is placed in the storage compartment and connected to an extension cord which is connected to a 120 V outlet on the side of the bed frame.
Removing the slats to screw in the head side stopper that keep the mattress from sliding off. Similar location at the foot location.
Attaching the foot section. Final step!
