(1) Pair of Pliers or Wrench
Please Note: The following is assembly for a Blocks Bed. Other beds by this manufacturer may not assemble exactly the same as shown below but will be "very" similar.
Outside Bed Assembly
Assembly of Canadian Platform Beds is pretty straight forward once you layout and identify the parts (Example 1). Start by seperating out the hardware, corner supports, side leg supports and box legs (Example 2). Begin connecting the siderails and headboard/footboard sections with the provided bolts, washers and nuts. Assembly of these sections is donw with the parts upside down. Use your wrench to secure these tightly (Example 3). Next attach the side leg supports [if your model of bed uses these.] as shown in (Example 4). Then connect the corner supports to each corner of the bed with the provided screws. You'll use your Phillips screwdriver to do this. Following that step you'll then secure the box legs with wood screws as shown in (Example 5).
Headboard Assembly & Foundation
When you have completed the assembly of the outside bed frame it should look like the example still upside down in (Example 6). Connecting the headboard is simple. Turn the assembled outside bed frame upright again. Line up the headboard over the holes in the headboard side of the frame. Insert the provided steel bolts from underneath and use a washer and nut to secure each one (Example 7). Your assembled headboard should look like the image in (Example 8). Next you'll drop the frame onto the bed. It will simply rest on the corner supports of the bed. Your frame will either be the European beechwood slats mounted into a steel frame or upgraded to the solid panel rivetted into a steel frame as shown in (Example 9). Place your mattress and bedding onto the bed frame and your new furniture is ready for use.
