Installation and Maintenance
♦ The Murphy bed must be installed and properly secured to the wall by a trained installer.
♦ ALWAYS LOWER the leg set when opening the bed. Otherwise, you will overextend and stretch the springs, and possibly rip out the mounting brackets.
♦ Conversely, ALWAYS RAISE the leg set when closing the bed, as you would otherwise damage the cabinetry.
♦ Softly close the Murphy bed door: hold it by the handles until fully retracted. Improper handling could structurally damage the cabinetry or cause injuries. Do not allow small children to open or close the Murphy bed unless closely supervised by an adult.
♦ Refrain from rambunctious activities on the bed....it is primarily for sleeping/rest.
♦ Check your Murphy bed installation regularly to ensure proper functioning and secure attachment to the wall.
♦ Do not leave lights on inside a closed cabinet. The small enclosed space will heat up and may cause a fire hazard.
