IKEA Futon Sofa Bed – Futon sofa beds are provided in their components. To assemble them, you have to join the back of the seat to form a single box, with hinges. This frame is effective for converting the futon sofa-bed into a futon couch or seat. The frame is also mounted in another frame of support rails that took place between the arms of the futon. While the design of each futon can be different, the basic set is necessary to build the two configurations of support rails and frame with hinges and put these two together.
Place the pieces that make up the futon sofa bed on the floor. Check that you have all the components listed in the futon box. Move the two stretchers and the two arms to the same side and the back cover and the seat cover to the other side. Slide the ends of the stretchers onto the receiver ends on the arms so that the screw holes are aligned. Screw the bolts into tightening with an Allen wrench. Turn the screws just enough to hold the arms and the stretchers together.
Slide the ends of the cover back into the mouth of the seat cover. Lock the two pieces in place with the bolts so that they both form a hinged frame. Mount the frame with hinges on the support rails formed by the arms and the stretchers. Connect the articulated frame to the support rails with screws and pins. Tighten the screws on the support rails with the Allen wrench. Adjust the futon mattress on the futon.
