Queen Bed Lift with Platform, End Opening

Uncover loads of new storage space with this easy-to-operate bed lift—includes queen-size steel platform with wooden slats!

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 deal with all the dust that collects there? This queen-sized bed lift with a steel mattress platform solves both problems. With a single hand, anyone can lift the platform to reveal vast amounts of storage, 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 closing for safety.


Features:
  • Integral steel frame for easy installation and rugged durability
  • Opens from foot of the bed
  • Wooden slats provide additional shock absorption and comfort
  • Two lift mechanisms with gas pistons for easy access to your stored items
  • Platform moves laterally as it lifts for clearance at the wall
  • Designed to be used without a box spring
  • Wood components not included
  • Some assembly required
  • Static bearing weight of mattress, bedding and occupants placed on platform is limited to 400 pounds
  • For greater weight capacity, a suitable vertical support may be used under the center frame member and attached to the head and foot of the pedestal

Note: Mattress should weigh no more than 121.5 pounds (total capacity minus weight of steel platform). Platform and mattress weight combined will, ideally, equal the lift capacity. Not designed for use with a box spring.

platform bed
The description said with platform and it does not come with the wooden platform. When we were putting it together, it is impossible to get those plastic wood ends into the holes. They will not go in. we had to tap screw all of them in to secure the wooden slats. it was a big disappointment and a lot of work. I would not recommend this product.

Total Shit Show - Don't Waste Your Time
The "box" arrived damaged, and the UPS driver did what he could. "Box" is a generous term. A fifth-grader could have done better.

Multiple parts are missing. One major frame component is damaged. I will update based on Rockler's response.

I've purchased from Rockler multiple times, and have been thrilled with the service. This unit is drop shipped from their vendor, and the PLM who oversees this area is dropping the ball.

Hassle with broken prices.
We had to wait an extra week and a half because of a "glitch" in the system, then when ups dropped the box off it was in 2 pieces with parts loose and broken. Not impressed rockler, not impressed.

I DO NOT RECCOMEND
The box arrived and all the screws and bolts were lose in the box. The bar was bent and had to be banged out. It is missing 6 bolts 14 nuts and several washers. It appears to have been returned by a previous customer and sent out to me. This is an expensive item. and came a total mess. There was no way to know what was missing until attempt was made to put it together. Rip off! Shop another company. You have to rate a 1 star but given option I would not give it a star at all. NO INSTRUCTIONS either

Leather should be stored flat and a Queen bed is a lot of flat space. By building a box around my bed with this lift kit it will let me store my leather flat while still protecting it from my cats.

where do I find this actual bed frame with the headboard?

Can I get a copy of the instruction manual? I have an existing bed that I would like to adapt and need to know dimensions and attachment structure.
Robert on Sep 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Go to the " Technical Downloads " Download PDF file a lot of good INFO ! I hope this will answer all of your Questions
Just received my X8007 bed lift system. No installation instruction were included. I know Rockler has a general install outline on thier website but it does not discuss how to attach the lift and rails. I would like the full installation manual. Can you email it to me so I can get started?

(1) Queen-Sized Steel Bed Platform with Wooden Slats
(2) Lift Mechanisms with Gas Pistons
(1) Instruction Manual
Do you know what the dimensions of the queen bed frame is? I would like to start construction while waiting for delivery.
Ken H on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The overall dimemsion is 60" x 80" same size as a queen size mattress using 1 1/8 square tubing. When making the platform frame make sure that you have approximate 1/2" clearance for the frame. The frame will be resting on cleats inside the platform frame.
Does anyone who has actually put this together have any info about the springs? Should they feel completely immobile/locked? I don't have a lot of experience with Pneumatic springs, but no instructions (as noted in my review and by others) and when I go to the website of the manufacturer printed on the springs themselves, Google warns me that it's a dangerous site?
Remy G on Dec 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The pistons are stiff. You have to put a hand on both sides of the unit and push down evenly. The first time they do feel stuck but will give way.
I have an existing Mission Style bed frame with headboard and footboard. My plan is to make 2 storage boxes that drop into the existing frame, thus gaining a center support. All the dimensions check out so far. My question is the description mentions it moving laterally as it raises for clearance at the wall. Will this be an issue at the footboard? If it stays in the same footprint as it raises it should not be an issue. Do these measurements exist?
John P on Jun 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: With the head of the bed flush against a wall, the end of the bed nearest the wall will not hit the wall and on the foot end, the bed raises straight up in an arc that does not extend beyond the foot end of the bed frame.
What are the height dimensions?
dbnoonan on Aug 20, 2016
The wood frame the steel queen frame sits on, in the instructions it shows the wood platform having a center piece of wood that looks like it would support the center of the steel queen frame. In the picture on the home page you don’t show this wood center frame. Is this center piece of wood necessary for support? Or could we have an open square box under the bed as a frame?
SHEILA L on May 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use a center support. The suggested capacity of support for this frame is 400 lbs (unsupported), and a mattress can take up to 125 of that total. That would leave only about 275 lbs remaining for sleepers, beddings, etc.

I use a simple “T” support (1” thick x approx 16” wide, standing on end) to extend that support capacity. It essentially only creates sections in the storage area, which isn’t a big deal to me.
Is the frame made of solid pine wood?
Annette S on Oct 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't believe Rockler sells the wood frame. The advertisement is only for the lift mechanism and the medal frame. It's meant for someone that wants to build their own frame. However, they can't seem to get that right either. I ordered the lift and 2 months later still didn't have it or an expected delivery date.
Is the wooden structure that holds the metal and slats frame included?
Rocky on Sep 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I Had The same question. It is not very clear at all from the website other than the the description of whats supplied.
Shirt answer.Slats for matress support,is supplied. No additional woodframe.
The bed base in my RV is only 48" wide. Can the lifts be mounted on a base narrower than the metal platform?
