I-Semble Platform Bed Lift Mechanisms

Considering the amount of unused space under the average bed, it's no surprise that that's one of the most popular places to store things. But who wants to crawl around on all fours and fend off dust bunnies? This bed lift and mattress platform solves both problems. Just lift the platform with a single hand to reveal abundant storage space, all fully visible, easily accessible and shielded from the dust that would otherwise collect on your items. The gas pistons provide lift for easy opening, and dampen the action when closing.


Features:

  • Lifts can be oriented to open from the side of the bed, or the foot of the bed
  • Two lift mechanisms included, each with a gas piston and rugged steel frame
  • Mattress platform moves away from the wall as it lifts for better clearance and easier access
  • Wooden components not included—materials should equal or exceed 3/4'' hardwood plywood and 4/4 hardwood lumber
  • Not intended for use with a box spring

How to choose the proper lift:

To ensure proper functioning, add your mattress weight to your platform weight. The sum of these numbers should be as close as possible to the listed lift capacity. Mattress weights vary significantly based on size, thickness and materials. Contact the manufacturer if you don't know the weight.


If you don't know your platform weight, use the following:

  • 77 lbs. for a twin-size platform
  • 100 lbs. for a full-size platform
  • 115 lbs. for a queen-size platform

Note: Not for use as side lift mechanism with I-semble Platform bed frames. The Platform bed frames are not drilled for the side lift.

Other than a few clearance issues, it works great.

Neat contraption to add to the bedroom
Purchased this for a storage bed I made for my daughter. This was my first big wood working project in over 35 years and it turned out ok. I put the lift in sideways to open the bed from one side and added quite a bit of storage.

we already built the murphy bed and decided to use this to create storage in another bedroom.
Angela L on Feb 22, 2018
We want to have more accessible storage under the bed. We want enough room for large plastic totes to be stored under the bed. This is the most practical way to get to the tubs easily!

Okay, I'm a bit confused by the description and pricing. The prices listed say "$69.99 each" (for the highest capacity model), but the "What's Included" box says "(2) I-Semble Bed Lift Piston/Frame Assemblies." Does that mean for a single queen-size bed I would get the pair of lifts I need for only $69.99?
Jim H on Jun 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My thought would be that you should go by the weight information listed in the Technical Specs.

231-lb. I-Semble Platform Bed Lift Mechanism (Item #: 53972)
Lift Capacity: 231 lbs.
Lift Length: 36''
Overall Weight Capacity (mattress, bedding and occupants): 650 lbs.

Can you use the heavey duty kit on a king size bed?
Steve M on Jul 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These can be used on a large heavy bed but you may need to use four rather than two
What is the layout of lifting arms for a King size bed?
Lee N on Dec 15, 2017
In the install instructions the 5 7/16" measurement is for your frame size. Is there a calculation for other types of frames. Seems to be 4" plus spring frame thickness. Is that correct? Thanks Victor
Victor E on Oct 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used plywood as a base and don’t have a box spring. I built a box with cubbies, added a non-attached plywood lid and put the hinges between the two.
does it fit to have 35cm thickness mattress?
irene s on Aug 1, 2017
Is it possible to make the storage space as deep as 30 inches or so? By using plywood sides, or stacking 2x10s?
Ernest on Oct 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can make the storage space as big as you want, just manipulate the top opening to work with these hinges. I made a queen size bed and have the hinges open on the head/foot of the bed.
I would like to install these in my Motorhome however the platform of the Queen Bed is hinged; In the description of the bed "Mattress platform moves away from the wall as it lifts for better clearance and easier access" My platform cannot move from the wall; Will these frame and piston brackets work on a hinged platform that cannot move from the wall?
Richard H on Jul 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought the same set for my motorhome as it is also hinged at the wall and it did not work. I am currently looking for some 50 pound hydraulic pistons to mount under the bed to ease it and keep it up when I want to get underneath it
I want to use the 53972 (the largest ) set with a plywood platform. Do you plans for constructing it?
Eric H on Nov 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I built a cabinet base, added a pallet wood headboard and attached the hinges at the head and foot of the bed with 2/6s and put 1/2 plywood on the hinges and the mattress on top of that. Contact me and I will add some photos--can't add them here.
Hello, can I mount this "sideways" ?
Stacey a on Jul 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, lifts can be oriented to open from the side of the bed, or the foot of the bed
