assembling bunk beds Step 8: Assemble the bunks

Lay one of the bunk ends flat on the ground.

Place the beds (standing on their ends) in position in between the bunk corner posts (h).

Then place the other bunk end in position on top of the beds.

Hold everything firmly in place with a few clamps.

Drill the bolt holes and add the bolts. Refer to the drawing on the right for hole placement.
Refer to the hardware list on page 5 for bolt sizes.
Make the bolt hole sizes the same diameter as the bolts.

Step 9: Attach the ladder

Attach the ladder while the unit is still standing on end.

Hold the ladder in place with two or three clamps.

Drill the bolt holes and add the bolts.

Refer to the drawing on the right for hole placement.

Refer to the hardware list on page 5 for bolt sizes.

Make the bolt hole sizes the same diameter as the bolts.

You can then tip the bunks over to their right position.

Safety note:

These bunk beds are designed for each bed to have a foam rubber mattress 4" (100mm) thick.
It is important that there is at least 5" (125mm) between the top of the mattress and the top of the guardrail.
A mattress any thicker will be contrary to the safety guidelines.
