Q & As

Zig Zag Folding Guest Bed, Single 4.4 5 10 10
Perfect and comfortable! Bought for the spare room , however got a chance to test the bed out over a few nights whilst main bedroom was being decorated. It feels very sturdy and the mattress is firm and comfortable. Will be happy for my guests to sleep on this. Only niggle is that the black plastic cup ends to a bed legs seems to fall off - may need to glue them back incase they get lost in future. folds up nicely into a compact stool. 12 September 2013
Good.. I bought this to put up in my daughter's room for her friends to sleep on when they come over to stay, and for her little sister when she wants to sleep in her room (!). It works very well and is easily folded away and put out by my 14 year old girl so I don't have to do it (yay). I would only give it 4/5 because the legs holding it up collapse when you drag the bed along. Other than that, great. The only thing I would like to see is maybe a fitted sheet that could be bought extra or something so that it had a sheet on the bed. It is quite hard to make up with normal single-bed sized sheets. Other than that, great. 23 August 2013
Great design, flawed build The beds look great and my boys sleep well on them BUT the nut that holds the bolt which act as each hinge is a useless design. Beware. they fall off. I returned the first two beds and the replacements have the same problem. 11 June 2013
a brilliant product but not flawless We love the bed. We choose this item as we wanted a guest bed that does not have to be stored away but can be used as a piece of furniture in our child's room were we use it as a seat. It's easy to put up, it's sturdy and comfortable (although a bit too narrow for a "bigger" person), and the cover is of strong fabric which can be washed. There's one downside (hence 4 points only): the legs on each end collapse very easily when the bed is shuffled around. It's very noisy when it bashes on the wooden floor and we ended up with a couple of holes in our floorboards due to the sharp corners of the frame. We added some metal hooks to each side which prevent the legs from collapsing... it's perfect now. Perhaps something the designers of this otherwise brilliant bed should consider. 13 April 2013
Very Good It works great as a large footstool and is also comfortable and solid as a guest bed. The beige color worked well for me but it would be useful to have more choices 02 February 2013
Really useful product Good, neat, useful product - seems very well made - which makes it quite heavy - but once in place no real need to move up and down stairs. Bed perfect for children but slightly narrow for the larger adult! 02 January 2013
Good guest bed The zig zag folding guest bed was delivered on time and on a Saturday, which was very helpful. The bed folds out easily and it is quite comfortable in size and support. Unfortunately two screws were missing so we had to provide our own. When folded and covered it can actually function as a coffee table or ottoman, so I think this is definitely a plus! 19 December 2012
Great little bed We were looking for a temporary bed for our 8 year old, whilst his room was being decorated. We also wanted a bed for his friend(s) on sleepovers; something we could pack away small when not in use. This fitted the bill nicely. The great advantage of this bed is that it masquerades as a stool when folded away. It takes just seconds to set-up[/put away. So, excellent piece of kit. Why not 5 stars? Well, I reckon an average size adult could sleep on it, but possibly a little narrow and maybe not that robust for a heavier person. All in all, though, it's very good. 14 December 2012
