Let's Take This System Apart!

Everybody asks us, "How hard is it to install a FlyingBed?"

Here's a system we shipped to Glenn Ellen, California. Before it leaves the factory
we stand the system up and functionally test its operation.
Here's a photo album of the assembly process in the factory with Mike and Gary.







Gary and Mike bring Pier cabinet into position.
Our cabinets are single piece systems already fully assembled.
All you do is stand them up.











Gary attaches pier cabinet to baseplate from SICO EuroBed.
This entire procedure is fully outlined in the SICO booklet accompanying your bed.

As a sidebar, notice the bracket towards the leading edge that looks like a saddle.
This is what the SICO EuroBed pivots in.

We have already placed this in its correct locatin and tested for correct operation.















Mike and Gary attach the spanner board between the two cabinets.
The purpose of this board is to allow the sloped headboard operation.

This spanner board could be increased in size to cover entire interior wall.
Just another option from FlyingBeds!








Now this is interesting! This is the bridge that spans between the cabinets.
Notice the lights are pre-wired and ready to be plugged into a normal outlet.

And.... see that black bar in the rear of the bridge?
That is our exclusive SICO wall mount bracket. This makes it very easy to bolt
your FlyingBed to the studs in the wall. This is a damn good idea!









Mike and Gary lift bridge onto Pier cabinets.
This is another simple step in your installation.









Gary attaches bridge to pier cabinets by screwing down vertically into cabinets.

If there is inadequate clearance for this operation, we have other options available.







Gary adjusts tension on SICO EuroBed for "two finger operation".

Pay attention here. You won't find this procedure anywhere else! You have to squeeze between the frame and mattress to adjust the 3/4" nut on lift mechanism. This is not as hard as it looks, and will save you time compared to the suggested SICO factory procedure.

Here's another secret...
After getting the bed perfectly tuned, back that nut off 1/4 turn. This will eliminate any noise from misalignement.














I wished I could say this buck board is pattented, but I can't.
It's too simple. The purpose of this buck board is to keep the mattress in position when the bed is lifted to the closed storage.










Remember that buck board that Mike was attaching in the photo above? Here we attach to its top edge, the sloped headboard we are famous for.

This is nothing but a piano hinge that allows the headboard to ride up and down on that spanner board we installed earlier. Cool!







Voille! Call the guest, tell them their bed's ready!

If you run into a problem, call us. If you decide to pay a handyman to install this bed, have him call us when he's in the room with the perceived problem!










Don't try this at home!
Trained professionals like Gary can't even install two beds at one time.
