Futon frame that's compatible with a number of different matresses
Cannot be sold seperately
This futon frame along with its elegant wooden arms is the perfect and easy alternative to a pull-out couch. Unlike the couch, this futon flaps down in a matter of seconds to turn into a comfortable full-sized bed. This futon allows you to save floor.

The futon frame behaves sufficiently. Feels sturdy enough. I live alone and don't have many ways to put it through abuse, so if there's structural faults I probably won't find them. It's a bit of trouble to fold it back up after you've popped it open, but it works. The build, though, that's a different story...
This frame expects you to put almost everything together with lug nuts and screws. Most pieces of this don't have any kind of threading for a screw to take hold, so you have to hold the screw in place with an allen wrench, hold the nut in place with a wrench, and twist at least one of them. This is the sort of thing that becomes infinitely easier with a second set of hands, but my advice would be to throw away the tiny wrench that comes with this frame immediately, as it will strip before the lug nuts in this frame do. Get a ratchet instead, as that will provide significantly better leverage and flexibility when putting this together.
I purchased this as a replacement frame for a futon that gets abused by its owners (2 great danes that like to play hot lava). The original frame snapped into pieces. This frame claimed to be universal for wood sides. It didn't fit my wood sides. I ended up making do and putting some new holes in both the frame and the sides. Yes, there were left over pieces. The only real positive is that this frame is a little sturdier than the original, oh, and mine came with instructions. Of course, since the frame didn't fit the sides, the instructions were pretty useless.
When I opened my futon frame's box I immediately noticed that there were no instructions in the box, then when I looked at the pieces of the frame I had to put together and I saw how cheap the metal was I was very skeptical about this product, the medal frame was so weak that if you applied a little pressure on it that the metal would bend!! I am very disappointed with the product I received and I am sending it back for a refund, and I forgot to say that all of the screws that come with the frame don't actually fit in some the grooves that they are made for, again I am very disappointed and I hope that I never have another experience with Amazon like this one again
