ASSEMBLING THE NEXT MURPHY BED FRAME


STEP 01

Attach the Bottom Spring Tube (J) to the Floor Yokes (H). Do not tighten bolts until after step 2.

Hardware: Hardened M8x16mm Bolt (4 pcs)

STEP 02

Attach, hand-tight, Yoke Connector Bar (I) to the Floor Yokes (H). Tighten bolts from step 1, then tighten bolts from step 2.

Hardware: M6x18mm Bolt, Nylock Nut (2 sets)

STEP 03

Attach the Wall Mount Brackets (G) to the Floor Yokes (H) using the Bolts, Nuts, and Washers shown. The distance from the end of the Wall Mount Brackets to the fronts of the Floor Yokes should be equivalent to the mattress thickness, plus 8 inches. Place bolt heads on outside. 

Hardware: M8x20mm Bolt, 2 Flat Washers, Nylock Nut (4 sets)

STEP 04

Insert Screws through Wall Mount Brackets (G) and into the bottom plate of the wall (Ok to screw through baseboard, but if there is quarter-round it must be removed. The Floor Yoke Assembly must sit directly on the floor, parallel to the floor). This may require inserting the screws at a downward angle. If the wall was not constructed using a wooden bottom plate (the stud that runs horizontally under the vertical wall studs), the Next Bed must be secured using proper fasteners for the wall construction, or be secured into the subfloor instead, using either 5/16” concrete anchors (concrete subfloor) or 5/16” lag screws (wood subfloor).

Hardware: 3” Flat Head Wood Screw (8 pcs)

Slide End Frame (F), Head Frame (B), Side Rails (D) and Center Rail (C) together as shown. Attach, hand-tight, End Frame (F) and Head Frame (B) to Side Rails (D); 2 bolts at foot, 4 bolts at head. Place bolt heads on top, with washers and nuts below the Frame.
Note: Side Rails are not interchangeable. The Side Rails (D) must be installed into the Head Frame (B) and End Frame (F) so that the holes for the Legs (N) are nearer the End Frame (F).
Hardware: M8x53mm Bolt, Lock Washer, Nut (6 sets)
