Mattress Retainer is designed to keep the mattress in place on the sleep surface. Determine what the length of bed you will need to use. Please read important information on Mattress Retainer and follow instructions on installation. Use the 76”, 80” and 84” guide on the head and foot section to place your mattress retainer in the correct spot.


  • If you are using a 76” bed frame there is no need to move the mattress retainers at the head and foot section.
  • If you are using a 80” bed frame you will need to move the head and foot section mattresses retainers to the 80” slots which is the middle position.
  • If you are using an 84” bed frame you will need to move the head and foot section mattress retainers to the 84” slots which are the last slots closest to the head and foot boards.

The remaining mattress retainers on the perimeter of the sleep deck should be moved in the upward position.

Place mattress on mattress support deck. The mattress should now be snug against all of the mattress retainers.

Replace mattress, making sure mattress fills length between Mattress Retainer stops. Also, make sure the mattress does not compress below 1.5” under patient/resident weight.



NOTE: 3/16” Hex key required for initial mounting of headboard and footboard support assemblies.

This tool is also required for bed length adjustment. Insert headboard or footboard support assembly, whichever is appropriate for the end of the bed you are working on.

There are mounting positions for 3 different mattress lengths, 76”, 80” and 84”. Choose the one appropriate for your mattress.
