Wilkes 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.
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 lower side rail so you can attach it to the headboard using the supplied hardware.
Have a helper remain at the headboard to steady it. Attach the second upper side rail to the headboard using the supplied hardware.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the opposite side.
Insert the mattress support rails to connect the two rail assemblies.
With the assistance of your helper, lower the side rails and allow them to rest on the floor. With a helper, move the footboard towards the side rails. Slide the side rails into the footboard mounting extensions and secure the fasteners.
Reposition the bed as needed to its final position.
Double check all bolts for tightness.
Lay the wooden support decking on the inset frame.
Install your mattress box spring.
