Bed Lift Mechanisms ~ Under Bed Storage

(in association with Rockler Woodworking and Hardware)

Considering the amount of unused space under the average bed, it's no surprise that that's one of the most popular places to store things. But who wants to crawl around on all fours and deal with all the dust that collects there! These bed lift mechanisms solve both problems. With a single hand, anyone can lift the mattress platform to reveal vast amounts of storage, all fully visible, easily accessible and shielded from the dust that would otherwise collect on your items.
Bed Lift Mechanisms A pair of gas pistons provide lift for easy opening, and dampen the closing for safety. The simple two-piece design makes installation easy.
