Flex-a-Bed Bed Rails
 
Deluxe rails require a wooden back on the box-spring section. Attaches to underside of base with Lag Bolts.

Mounting Instructions:
 

1

Flip the bed over, upside-down. Make sure the mattress is underneath the bed.
Bed upside down
The bed pictured is a Full-size Flex-a-bed Hi/Lo model. It's fairly heavy and will require 2 people to turn it over.

2

With the bed upside down you can see where the rails mount.
Rail location
These rails are being mounted at the HEAD of the bed. Make sure the rails point to the foot of the bed.

3 On this Flex-a-bed, we'll mount the rails so that the edge of the bracket is 10" from the edge of the bed.
How to measure

4 Here's a close up of where we position the rail for mounting. This Flex-a-bed requires 10" spacing from edge.
at least 10 inches from edge

5 Use the supplied wood bolts (lag bolts) to attach the rails to the back of the bed. These rails work similarly on any bed with a wooden back.
Use lag-bolts

6 This Flex-a-bed uses a "mattress retainer" to keep the mattress in place.
Mount Mattress Retainer
While the bed is upside down you can see the stud bolts for mounting the mattress retainer - so we'll put it on before we flip the bed over.

Halo Safety Ring Non-Hospital Bed Installation

This guide is for mounting model:
  • 77121 Double Side Mount

Product Number 77121 also carries the ALC designation, the abbreviation for Assisted Living Center. It is designed for standard home beds with a metal frame that holds the bed's box-spring in place. The mounting hardware must attach to this metal frame.


Parts included:
1 - Halo ALC Hardware Kit
2 - Halo ALC Circles with Telescoping Connectors with Bolt Attached
2 - Halo ALC Frame Mounting Bracket
2 - Halo ALC Threaded Tube Connectors with Bolt Attached
2 - Halo ALC Floor Plates
2 - Halo ALC width extenders

4 - 5/16” Zinc Plated Bolts
8 - 5/16” Zinc Plated Washers
4 - 5/16” Zinc Lock Washers

6” or 9” Flat Blade Long Screwdriver (for use on the telescoping tube connector pins)


77121 Components


Installation Steps:

Step 1:
Remove mattress & box spring from your bed before beginning installation.

Step 2:
Remove bed rails & all bed rail mounting brackets prior to installation of the Halo Safety Ring.

Step 3:
Assemble the sides of the Halo ALC (L frame mounting bracket, threaded tube connector, and floor plate). Directions outlined in assembly instructions.

Step 4:
Lift the frame of the bed off the ground and angle the L frame mounting bracket (which is assembled together with the threaded tube connector and floor plate) so the bracket lip is secured to the L frame of the bed.

Step 5:
Slide width extender over the L frame bracket - which has two holes drilled into the end of the bracket 1” apart.

Step 6:
Follow the above steps for the other side of the bed. Once both sides of the Halo ALC are mounted to the frame, adjust the width extenders for the appropriate width of the bed. (The difference between the width of a twin bed and that of a queen bed).

Step 7:
Loosen the Turnbuckle evenly on both sides so that there is at least a 1˝” of thread showing on each side of the turnbuckle.

Step 8:
Take 1 bolt and washer and put over the top of the circle portion of the threaded part of the turnbuckle. Place it through the first hole of the width extender and tension bar on one side of the bed. Place the opposite end of the turnbuckle onto the other width extender hole with a washer and bolt through the top of the turnbuckle.

Step 9:
Loosen the Turnbuckle evenly on both sides so that there is at least a 1˝” of thread showing on each side of the turnbuckle.

Step 10:
Apply another washer, lock washer, and nut. Loosely tighten until after the turnbuckle, tension bar, and hardware have been applied to both side of the width extenders.

Step 11:
With both bolts through the turnbuckle bolts and first holes of each width extender, slowly and gently tighten the turnbuckle by hand, making sure that the turnbuckle bolts do not become removed since they are not secured with nuts.

Step 12:
Tighten the turnbuckle enough so that the bolts slide through the tension bar (which is placed at the bottom of the ALC width extender).

Step 13:
Once the turnbuckle is pulled together enough to allow the tension bar to slide over the bolts that are coming through the width extenders, apply washer, lock washer and nuts.

Step 14:
Secure the turnbuckle as needed with a 9/16” open-end wrench. Secure all nuts and bolts using the appropriate socket wrench.

Step 15:
Tighten and secure all pieces as needed in order to confirm the base of the Halo ALC is stable.

Step 16:
Put your bed back together. Place the box spring and mattress onto the frame of the bed.

Step 17:
Insert the Halo ALC Circle onto the L frame mounting brackets that are sticking up on either side of your bed. With your thumb and middle finger, squeeze the telescoping tube connector pins into place. Slide the Halo ALC Circle over the rubber bracket spacer and lock it into the first hole position.

Step 18:
The base of the Halo Circle must line up with the top edge of the mattress. If adjustments are needed - take the two extra telescoping connector pins (included in the Halo ALC hardware kit) and place the pins into the hole that fits best to make the lowest part of the circle line up with the top of the mattress.

Step 19:
Use a needle nose pliers or flat blade long screwdriver to assist you when putting in the additional telescoping tube connector pins.


Your Halo Safety Ring is now installed and ready for use!

Halo mounting hardware

Step 1

Raise the Head Portion of the bed up. Attach item 4 to item 2 using items 9 and 10, establishing the closest width to bed ratio.

Note: Do not extend the length of Items 4 and 2 any further then the outside of the bed width.

ACTUAL BED FRAME WIDTH:
WIDTH A = 34" < 36"
WIDTH B = 36" < 38"
WIDTH C = 38" < 40"
WIDTH D = 40" < 42"
WIDTH E = 42" < 44"

Installation Step 1

Step 2

Lower the Head Portion of the bed leaving Items 4 and 2 tightened together and in place above the crease of the head potion of the bed, about 6 to 12 inches.

Attach (1) Item 2 to Item 4 using Items 7 and 8, do not fully tighten. Place the first Item 2 over the side of the bed that raises the head up and down.

Installation Step 2

Step 3

Repeat this process again on the opposite side of the bed. Tighten Item 7 on both sides of the bed evenly.

Note: The Halo Safety Ring moves up and down with the head portion that raises the head up and down. It does not connect to the main frame.

Installation Step 3

Step 4

Once the Halo Safety Ring Bracket system is safely installed, attach Item 11 to Item 2 on each side of the bed. Tighten Item 11 so it digs into the bed frame to secure the Halo Safety Ring system into place.

Note: If the bed has an L-shapped steel frame, use Item 12 instead of Item 11.

Installation Step 4

You are now ready to install the Halo Safety Ring into the Circle Mounting Brackets.

Note: Based on whatever unit is purchased you would need to repeat the installation process of the Halo Safety Ring if you purchased a Halo Safety Ring Double Sided Circle Unit.
