    So we spent months researching for the perfect mattress, waited patiently for the best price on the mattresses we wanted to try, spent hours at multiple stores laying on different mattresses praying we didn’t pick up some disease along the way until finally… We pulled the trigger and bought a mattress!The next day it is delivered and we are ecstatic, ready to get a good night’s sleep in our newly punched bed. We hop in and are sorely disappointed to find that we are still sloping in on top of one another in the middle of the bed. What gives? We got a new box spring to go with our new mattress. We should be sleeping like babies on a cloud ☁. Wrong. Our frame was warped from being passed down through multiple family members so the cross bars are kinda bowed in the middle.So begins the hunt for a frame to take our new mattress from disappointing to heavenly. After a little research I settled on the frame I am reviewing here. I liked the price and for the most part it got great reviews. It is important to note I wanted a quiet frame for… Adult activities 😉.This frame exceeded my expectations. It only took 30 min start to finish to set up. The instructions were clear and easy to understand. I am a visual learner so the pictures were quite helpful. Initially I was a little leary due to how light the pieces were but I’m pleased with how strong it is. It comes compactly folded which will be great for our next move. There are 3 main parts plus easy to use screws washers and an Alan wrench. The best part is how supportive the frame is. The bed was totally level (yes I checked with a level), after it was assembled and the box spring and mattress were put on. No more sloping or hole in the middle! My husband and I can sleep comfortably apart or together without feeling like we’re sleeping on a cliff.Last note, it is definitely quiet ;). Even with the headboard attached.

    This is a very excellent metal frame and better looking than the cheap roller ones that your feet bump in to. It’s packed well and appears sturdy. One star from perfect, we bought this for its custom appearance, and we wish to attach a wooden head board to one side. This frame has 3 horizontal openings (like slots) where you can adjust and fit to your headboard. The slots are too thin for our bolts- so big deal you say, get new bolts or drill out the opening. We like the thicker bolts for stability, so we will opt to drill out the steel. I just wish those slotted openings were bigger to accommodate a good sized bolt.Otherwise the screws go in to the base very smooth and all parts and pieces align nicely. There are little pads which you can stick on the rail tops for better gripping to mattress.The frame legs are a good thickness and more up to date than those ancient looking castor wheel frames most mattress chain stores sell you for $59. With Prime speedy delivery, get this frame!

    My husband and I are not dainty people.When we got our king size bed I forgot a screw in the center and we found ourselves rolling to the middle of the bed within the first week when the frame bent. We went back to where we got the bed and got a new frame which I more carefully put together. We still ended up in the middle of the bed within a week or two. At that point it was too embarrassing to go back to the store and ask for another frame so we ended up with the box spring and mattress on the floor which I told myself I liked just fine.In the year or more that we were on the floor I bought two more bed frames, neither of which worked out (one because I lost pieces before I got it put together and another because it made the bed so uncomfortable that I took my bed off it after one night).This frame IS sturdy. We’ve been on it for at least a month and there is no sign of failure. It also doesn’t slide around on my wood floor like I thought it would.Additionally, I have yet to stub my toe and have not had that complaint from anybody else in my house–this was my main concern after reading the reviews. Yes, I agree that the legs are right at the corners, but I’m not sure what those other people are doing walking with their feet under the bed.

    These Were great, when the box arrived I was kinds questionable, but they are sturdy and setting them up was extremely easy, the tools are included all together it took about 5 minutes to put together. I purchased two of these to use for the foundation/framing of a king size bed.

    IMO Review

    For the price, this is an amazing bed frame!Pros:This bedframe is extremely sturdy. I wouldn’t have thought this due to the price and the fact that the frame came in such a small package. I had my doubts about a frame that had that many joints as I would assume that adding smaller connecting pieces instead of single formed/cast longer rails would be stronger. However, if it is weaker, I can’t notice. I was also a little scared because the legs (which don’t have wheels) looked a little silly, they designed this so that the outside legs are tilted a little, I’m guess to lock it in place with gravity since they aren’t welded at a right angle like expensive sets.Despite this, after a few months of use, this frame doesn’t move at all! Jumping on the bed, making it, sleeping, nothing, it is solid. For the price, what more can you ask for then a solid bed frame that fits perfectly to our boxspring.Cons:This is minor due to price, but it doesn’t have wheels. Put it where you want it, because with a king bed, you won’t be moving it often.

    Solid and easy!!! I’m pregnant and this really wasn’t hard to construct as the unit just fit together and the directions were clear. May people complained it’s shorter than expected, but it seems perfect to me ( I’m 5’8″). In fact the bedskirt barely touches the floor! I am completely satisfied.

    Best bedframe I have seen for the money. Comes in a smal easy to handle carton. Well packed. Well designed, easy to assemble. Instead of the standard cheapie steel frame I was familiar with, which uses full length side rails and folding cross supports with 4 legs, this one uses one cross bar at each end and a center bar with folding side rails Each bar has 3 legs, and the legs fold and bolt rigidly to the frame. All the pieces are permanently attached so all you have to do is unfold it and assemble according to the well thought out instructions. If you can, I would suggest laying the box spring on the floor upside down and laying the assmbled fram on top to adjust the width and tighten the adjusters down. You may also wish to put carpet sliders under the legs before you set the matress and spring on top as it is tough to move on carpet when fulled set up! The 9 legs offer ample support for heavy folk or liesure activities.

    Does not fit cal king!!! I should have read the reviews before I purchased. Like others said, it does not fit a cal king as advertised. Also some of the welds were off so even if it did fit the box springs would not be lined up. My husband is an engineer (and former mover) and he says it is poorly made and it does not come together properly. Will be returning tomorrow 🙁

    I must admit I didn’t see all the complaints before I ordered this so I was nervous until it came. Due to prime membership it came in 2 days and was in perfect no scratches or malfunctions so far so good and super easy to put together. I felt like this would either be a hit or miss. Luckily hit! I suppose the good ratings out weighed the bad so odds are favorable! Im glad I took the gamble however I wish it didn’t feel like a gamble…I guess often life feels that way regardless lol!

    This bed frame was easy enough to put together, and while it’s a bit flimsy-feeling, it works fine. The reason I’m scoring it so low is because I can’t fit my four underbed boxes underneath it because of the way the legs are offset toward the center of the bed, and how the shorter crossbars are on a lower plane than the rest of the frame. I used to be able to put all my boxes under the bed with their long sides touching, but now due to the arrangement of the offset legs and the lower-than-usual crossbars on this Zinus frame, only two will fit. If this doesn’t concern you, you’ll probably like this frame, which is perfectly serviceable. But I live in a tiny city apartment and need all the storage I can get, so this poses a big problem–where do I put the other two boxes now? I’ll most likely end up donating this to Goodwill and ordering a more typical bed frame. I’ll certainly be thinking about underbed storage next time.

    Easy to put together. I am a 50 year old woman and did the entire thing myself in like 15 minutes. Very easy to understand directions and just basically a few screws to put in. Most pieces are connected already, you just fold them out and bend the legs down, and then a bolt goes through a hole to hold the leg in place. So easy. The way this thing is made, it is VERY strong and sturdy. It is a great price on Amazon for a quality bed frame like this.

    At first, I thought there was hardware missing, but after working with it for a while, I realized it came with enough screws and wingnuts to complete the assembly. I have no idea why the bolt heads were in hex and not Phillips. Also, the nuts were simple wingnuts; I think standard hex nuts with nylon inserts should have been provided to ensure the nut stays on the screw. In my opinion, a bed frame is something one builds once and intends to use for many years without the need to move or disassemble it. If I have trouble with the wingnuts backing off, I’ll have to go to the hardware store and buy different screws, nuts and probably locking washers. Locktite Blue might work, too.Changing from two stars to four because, after assembly and fitting the foundations and mattress, it seems to be just fine at doing what it was designed to do.

    This is the second Zinus bed frame that I have purchased. I’ve been satisfied with both of them. This bed frame in particular is labeled full-queen-king-cal. king, but I used it for a queen bed. A box spring must be used with this bed frame as it has only three cross-supports.Assembly was quick. I put it together alone, and it took me about a half hour. The directions are simple, and there are only 3 large pieces. The legs flip down from the large pieces and bolts are used to hold everything in place. There’s no guesswork, and there’s no balancing while screwing. I have hardwood floors and I feel that the legs stay in place and provide a strong foundation.As for looks, the frame is mostly hidden. I don’t have a bed skirt on the bed right now, but that would hide it even more if you choose. If you want an understated bed frame, this is it. It’s not the star of the show, but it still has style and strength.I would totally buy this again, and from the two bed frames (different styles and sizes) that I’ve gotten from Zinus, I do recommend this company. I loved their prices and I love their products.

    Assembly was quick and easy although the Allen wrench that was included is a piece of crap. It stripped out pretty easy. The king size frame fits my king size box springs and mattress as expected. I slept on the frame and my new bed for the first time last night and I am satisfied with my purchase. The frame seems to be sturdy and does not make any noise. I will purchase a headboard soon and hopefully have no issues attaching it to the frame.

    Good and sturdy frame. Assembly was very simple. It does fit a California king bed as long as you loosen the butterfly and extend it as far as you can. This frame does include headboard brackets, but no footboard brackets. The bed kind of just cuts off which I found interesting. I ordered an extension so here’s to hoping it works with this frame!

    It seems to look m like it’s a sturdy frame so far but it took me forever to get it up because It was missing the brackets to hook it to the head board. So good luck if you buy it and this happens to you because I notified the seller many times and nothing was done :-/

    Relatively easy to put together. Once together feels pretty sturdy.Wish there was a way to easily lock it into shape: when inserting the two halves of my box spring the bed frame easily became unaligned. Was more of a pain in the ass to get the box spring settled than I’ve experienced with other frames in the past.

  18. Rated 5 out of 5


    It is easy to set up, and disassemble to folding it up if you are moving your bed to a new location. It pretty sturdy, so it doesn’t wiggle much. I have a few minor issues but won’t mark it down. Be careful to keep track of the screw, and bolt, I am sure that when setting these up they can get lost easy. My only second issues with it is I wish it was off the floor more, but its seems fine at the height its at. So far my mom is enjoying it very well, as she had her bed on the floor for over 2 years, so yeah.

    I bought this based on the five-star reviews, but I’d give it only three stars. The instructions consist of just pictures so it takes a while to figure out how to assemble this. My frame says it’s for full, queen and king mattresses. However, the way it’s constructed it’s optimized for a king mattress. Anything smaller and you’re going to be sizing and resizing the frame until your mattress fits, which isn’t really all that easy due to how the frame is constructed. My previous bed frames have had wheels, while this one does not. That means to move it I’m going to have to remove the mattress and foundation so I physically pick up the frame and move it. I would not buy this again.

    Whenever I’m making a purchase, especially ones for items that are supposed to last I tend to check 3 and 4 star reviews more than anything else; they give me a even balance of positive and negative and allow me to make an accurate assessment.I was a little sceptical at first, reading reviews from people saying they didn’t get any sort of directions to the bed would constantly slip off, but I took a gamble anyways; and boy am I glad I did.Upon opening the box I was delighted to find a lovley thank you note from Zinus.Not only did the box include direction and all of the hardware needed BUT they also include a nifty little rachtting Allen Key. we finished assembling the frame in what seemed like no time at all and before we put our bed on we found this little pack on non slip rubber boots to ensure that your bed wouldn’t slip from its place.For 55$ I was throughtly impressed with the thoroughness and the level of professionalism that was shown in something as simple as a bed frame.I promise you I will be buying from zinuns again.P.s the only negative I have to say is that my frame was a tad bent alone one of the sides where one of the latches swag down, but it was nothing a simple wrench wouldn’t fix.P.p.s the wrachetting Allen key was an AMAZING touch, it just started to strip after it was exposed to too much pressure, but I digress. Regardless the good FAR outweigh the bad. If you guys made those tools with some sturdier metal you could sell them for a pretty penny.

    All i can say is wow, this product was well engineered. I am an Electrical Engineer but i still can appreciate a good design.I was very skeptical about how much this product cost, and wanted a sturdy frame. This thing is rock solid and breaks down into 3 pieces.If your nervous about getting a flimsy metal frame, don’t be! this thing would be able to hold your mom… (your mom fat joke here)Anyway great product and this should be the standard for all metal bed frames!

    Great price for a great frame. One of the pieces was slightly bent, but it was a great deal on the price. I was very please with the quality for the price. KING frame for some Kind Mattresses. As I say in some of my other reviews, I checked out the town I have lived for 25 plus years and found some king bed frames for 5 or 10 times the cost that I found it on AMAZON. I am not sure that I want to pay that much for the convenience of having it the same day in the little town of overpriced Elko Nevada. I live in a mining town with mining prices but the with convenience of standard stores such as wally world, albertsgirls, rileys, and many furniture stores. With the internet, why would I want to pay upward of tens times the amount for the same product. Does it truly cost that much more to unload it from a truck into a store? I simply say, it is a great frame for a great price.

    We were having problems with our mattress caving in and realized our current bed frame did not have a center support bar! Crazy! I read the reviews and decided on this one. My husband and I put it together yesterday afternoon and it was fairly easy. The directions are clear, all the parts were there and it’s coded with numbers so you can figure it out even if you’re not too technical or a builder. The bed already feels that much more secure and supportive with the center bar and the legs are a good height. We have a box spring and a mattress on top and it’s not too tall.

    My free with mattress frame kept falling apart. Therefore, I ordered this as a replacement. I needed a twin size. It still came with the center support bar. Many other twin frames do not have that bar. Especially for adult use, the bar is important for longer life of your mattress. This is a spare bed for guests and the frame worked out as a perfect replacement. My queen bed frame is on its last legs, so I ordered this brand in queen size as a replacement too. Very pleased.

    After my sons’ bed frame broke, he was in desperate need for a bed frame and I did not have time to go searching all over for one. Went on to amazon and found this bed frame at a great price and was a bit skeptical. This ended up being a great purchase, the frame came in quickly and my son built it on his own in 20 minutes. If my high school son can do it I don’t see why anyone else couldn’t do it. He put the mattress and the box spring on the bed and says he sleeps very comfortably. The frame is very sturdy and holds the bed well.

    I really was excited about this bed frame. It was simple and easy to set up, even had markings where the California King setting was for my California King bed. I set it up with no issues or problems. When I went to set the box spring down that is when I saw there was a problem. It will not expand wide enough for a California King and my box springs were left looking like a tee pee. The center support legs block it from fully extending. 🙁

    Looks like it would be great if it had come properly made. One of the holes on the long arms of it is on the wrong side so I can’t get the last leg put on. Unfortunately, it is on the bottom left corner so I can’t put a bed on it with it missing that leg.

    Is this a joke? The 9 bolts that come with this do not have any support for the four corners of the bed frame. I would almost consider this dangerous and advise consumers NOT to buy this product as you might harm yourself if you try and place any sort of weight on your bed using this bed frame. They should have made 5 bolt screws the way they did and then four more with threading that actually goes up to the top and in addition a counter fly nut to fasten it on the frame. It just dangles and there’s no way to move without it tipping in the legs. I’m still trying to find who I’m supposed to even contact about this, by sifting through fine print on all these epurchases. Maybe I’ll just go to the hardware store and buy something compatible with the product to make it safe to sleep on. Here’s another star, because I’m keeping the metal and some of your “bolts” or “screws” or whatever..maybe I can make a decent frame from this myself.

    We are a military family and we move every few years. I purchased this bed frame for our move, and left it in the box so we could move it easily to our next destination. Just arrived, opened the box, and queen frame we bought is a twin. There are no indications on the box what size frame this is, so we had no idea it was the wrong size until we opened it and read the directions. Giving 2 stars because it looks to be well made, however it’s entirely useless to us in the wrong size, it is not marked on the box what size it is, and now I cant get it back in the box, or return it because it’s been too long while we moved.

    I so appreciate a company that puts their money where their mouth is. Zinus has created a bed frame that is FUN to put together; they obviously had people attempt to install it before putting it out into the world for sale. This bed frame is BRILLIANT: the construction is totally solid and stable due to the 9 legs and method they used to put it together. I will buy the same frame if I ever need another.

    Have a Cal King mattress set that I needed a bedframe for. Didn’t want to spend $100 on a frame. Was very pleased to find this option and it has worked out perfectly. It came in a super small box and extends cleverly to fit any size frame, though Cal King is clearly marked as an option. Came with a rachet tool, hex key and thank you cards? Was easy to setup and fairly clear to follow the instructions.Now if I could only find a headboard I like…

  32. Rated 3 out of 5


    Quality is good and nice tools come with it for assembly. None of the holes match up to any headboard so we just have it pushed up against the headboard against the wall. Hindsight being 20/20 would have been better off with a 20$ one from the local mattress store so it could actually attach to the headboard but too late now and too heavy to take apart and get it downstairs not to mention try to find a box it will fit in for return since you have no choice but to destroy the one its shipped in in order to get it out. (tape, zip ties, and the box is also fully adhered all the way around) partially served its purpose as it hold the mattress and box spring.

    I ordered the CA King bed frame before I moved into my new house. When we put it together, the sides of the frame didn’t match up. Each was about 2.5″ longer than the other on both sides. I called customer service to see what we were doing wrong – we strictly followed the directions. They were very abrupt with me and told me there was NOTHING they could do over the phone – I had to submit a complaint online. (This was AFTER asking for all of my info – name, address, phone number, order number, all the info I entered on the order….) First of all – that’s ridiculous. So, I submitted my issue online and they, again, wanted every bit of info about the sale that I could possibly conjure up before they would even think about helping me. That was 2 weeks ago and I still have not gotten an answer to my problem. We have gone back and forth and they just keep asking for more info – my personal info (why do you need my phone number when you’re not going to call me anyway?), copies of the online order (that I submitted 2-3 times already and continue to have to submit it every time I reply to anything they send). All I want to know is how to put a simple bed frame together. They are making it seem like I’m asking for some presidential code to something. Completely horrified by this whole event. I would recommend against this company for anything (shame since the frame seems like it would be a good one.)The picture is off the website, but you’ll see the side rails are not aligned. Even though this is a picture off the website, this is not how it’s supposed to look.

    For the price it was actually more than I expected. After reading the reviews I was on the fence about it. Upon receiving the item I found it to be rather sturdy and well built. The entire setup took about 20 minutes and required no extra tools. The center supports are secured with wingnuts and the perimeter is secured with an allen wrench slotted bolt. Each foot pivots from its collapsed position and is locked in place with a provided bolt. Everything threaded nicely with little play for all the bolts. They also provide some little traction pads that you place along the outside rail to keep the box spring/ mattress from moving about. Over all very happy with the product and price, appears to be sturdy and made with the appropriate square tube steel.

    Great looking frame, legs seem study and have decent padding in the bottom, but it appears that there are either screws missing or that there is a manufacturing defect. The instructions direct you to put the “D” bolts through frame pieces A and B and screw them in with the supplied Allen wrench. Problem is that the bolts just slip in and out easily… there is nothing to screw them into. I tried reversing the frame support “B” as there are 2 holes – one for the bolt and the other for an already attached rivet of sorts. No dice, the bolt just slips through no matter which hole I stick it in. I’m good at putting things together, so I don’t think that it’s me. 4 more wing nuts would be handy as are supplies for the shorter bolts.

    I needed a new bedframe. For my new mattress set, the maker said to have a center ‘to the floor’ support. So I got this It has 9 legs that sit on the floor. No casters, however. It’s weird the way it comes. In a box you’d never think could have a bedframe in it. But it comes in 3 pieces. the legs swing out and click, pieces for the bars fold out on hinges. The sizes are clearly marked on the frame adjusters. The assembly was a bit confusing on where to use the wing nuts or the bolts. Ended up with an extra piece. Attaching the bed frame brackets to the frame was impossible.(The brackets that connect bed frame to your headboard) I think you had to have nuts left from the old one? Or the pieces were missing. No biggie, go and buy a few wing nuts of the proper size. I feel my bed is more supported with this frame. Overall, and for the price, I am happy with this purchase!

    Excellent product. Very well designed and very sturdy (which I appreciate being an engineer), and well priced. This is easily the best bed frame I’ve purchased.This went together quickly and fits my bed king-size bed exactly. I attached a headboard to the brackets that are included with the bedframe kit, which also fit very well. There are no brackets included that would allow attachment of a footboard (which I knew when I bought it), but I’ll figure that out later if I decide to add one.

    Love this. It was not too hard to put together and we have had no issues with the legs. I like the extra support with the middle row of legs that most frames don’t have. Most just have 4, this one has 9. Seems very sturdy. It fit our king size mattress just fine so no issues with it being off. The frame is well made and no issues of parts being bent when we got it. Everything fit together as it should have.

    I’m extremely satisfied with this bed frame! It only took a few minutes to put together, it’s strong, sturdy and it doesn’t squeak at all. The package arrived in perfect condition. Nothing was bent. Everything fit together perfectly!I had read several negative reviews from people who said that they have California King beds with two box springs (which is what I have). I’m not sure what actual dimension their mattress is, but my bed is 72 inches wide–and that’s the width that’s stated for this frame above. My two box springs fit absolutely perfectly into the frame! Based on other people’s bad experiences, I’d highly recommend taking a minute to measure your box spring before ordering the frame if you have a California King. Maybe there is some variation in size between manufacturers? I don’t think the issue is with this frame… at least based on my experience!

    I absolutely love this bed frame! For the quality bed frame you get, you cannot beat the price! I was a little hesitant to buy this because of how cheap the price is (because I am a firm believer in, you get what you pay for). I was also hesitant to buy because I am a heavy-set female and wanted something that felt sturdy and supportive of my weight. At first glance when taking the frame out of the box, I became apprehensive because it looked like it was going to be hard to assemble. (I think the diagram is what scared me). Once I threw that to the side and just let my common sense fit the pieces together, I had it up in no time. Me and my 12 year old daughter were able to put it together in about 30 minutes. The frame has 9 legs of support, with loads of screws for extra support and it fit my king-sized box-spring and mattress perfectly. I purchased the frame about a month ago and I have not slept so comfortable in years. It seems sturdy, durable, and solid. It was worth every penny! This is hands-down one of the best bed frames I have owned. Very happy customer!
