How To Keep An Ottoman Bed Down

How to keep an ottoman bed down

To keep an ottoman bed down make sure that the hydraulic system is working as it should in order to make sure that the ottoman bed does not flip up open while you are away from the ottoman bed or whilst someone is on top of the ottoman bed. To close the ottoman bed all you have to do is put some force into the ottoman bed when the storage compartment is open, and you should just be able to close the ottoman bed like you are closing the lid for a box.

If the ottoman bed does not stay down and you do not want to buy a replacement for the bed, then you should try placing heavier items on top of the ottoman bed. That way it may reduce the chances of the ottoman bed lifting itself open. This is because there is only so much weight that the hydraulic system can take before it cannot open itself without removing some of the weight on top of the ottoman bed. However, this is unrealistic since ottoman beds can take up to 40kg to 80kg and still be able to lift themselves open because of the strength of the hydraulic system in place to lift the mattress up as well when accessing the storage compartment of the ottoman bed.

Do ottoman beds have a base?

Ottoman beds if you are planning to purchase one that is solidly built and has a base. But most cheap ottoman bed does not have a base to save money on the manufacturing costs. So, you are better off buying a solidly built one with a base to make sure that it does fall apart with too much weight on the ottoman bed. Moreover, if you do not want to spend a lot on an ottoman bed and you still want to purchase a cheap bed you are better off purchasing a regular bed frame to make sure that the bed is sturdy to begin with.
