Collins Canopy Bed Assembly Instructions
ATTENTION: A wall anchor kit has been included with your custom furniture item. We recommend using this device to prevent inadvertent tipping. Detailed instructions for installation of the wall anchors are included in the attached package (supplied by the manufacturer). For your convenience we have also included bolts that you may use to bolt the metal bracket to your wooden shelf, should you choose. Use and installation of this device is at your own risk. Charleston Forge makes no guarantee and shall not be liable for use or misuse of this wall anchor kit. All installations will vary; consult a general contractor or the manufacturer of the anchor kit if you are uncertain this is the right solution for you.
NOTE: You will need the following tools available to assemble your bed.
i. 9/16” wrench
ii. Large Flat Head Screwdriver
iii. Two ladders or step-stools (to attach canopy rails)
You will need at least two helpers to assemble this bed safely.
Use one helper to steady the headboard. Use your second helper to elevate and support the side rail so you can attach it to the headboard with the 5/16” flat head bolts.
Once the rail is attached, have your helper continue to support he headboard with the one side rail attached. Bring the footboard to the attached side rail with a helper. Attach the footboard to the side rail with the 5/16” flat head bolts.
Have a helper remain at the headboard to steady it. Attach the second side rail to the headboard and footboard using the remaining 5/16” flat head bolts.
Reposition the bed as needed to get it in its final location and to be sure the headboard and footboard are aligned.
Select one of the canopy rails (they work on either side). Remove the nut from the threaded rod at the top of the canopy rail (Headboard/ Footboard). With a helper, use the two ladders or step stools to lift one of the canopy rails into position. Slide the canopy rail onto the threaded rod at the top of the bed legs. Replace the nut onto the threaded rod. Turn the nut by hand to snug it, complete tightening with the 9/16” wrench.
Repeat step 5 for the remaining canopy rail.
Make any final adjustments to the bed position and double check all bolts for tightness.
Install Bed Support system (NOT SHOWN).
