How To Convert Queen Beds
Queen beds sometimes called a full-size bed, is easily converted to hold a queen-size mattress. Increasing the size of your bed requires a converter kit sold on mattress and linens specialty stores. The kit can be removed if you want to convert your bed back to its original size. But when you’re used to sleeping on a queen-size mattress, you can’t have a smaller bed.
Remove the mattress and box spring from your queen beds, and then remove the rails from the headboard and footboard. Examine the pieces, make note of whether the rails attach the headboard and pedestal with slots and hook or nuts and screws. Buy a converter kit that works with your bed assembly. Mount the bed again, this time connecting your headboard and pedestal to the converter kit rails instead of your bed’s original rails. Swing middle support bars toward each other so that they meet the shape of a bar. Secure them together with your kit instructions. Adjust the center support bar’s legs and slide so that the slide sits about 1/4 inches above the floor.
Attach the bracket to the brackets. These are four brackets that attach to the rails, two on each side, and protrude past the sides of the rails. Using hardware and instructions comes with your converter kit to properly secure the bracket brackets. Put the queen beds in the spring on the rails, and enter the Queen mattress on top of the box spring. New mattress and box spring will be slightly wider than the rails. However, holder brackets will keep the box spring safe in place. Adjust the bracket brackets so that they hold the box spring safely, and then tighten and lock them in place with hardware provided.
