At first it was widely regarded as a great addition to the futon family of products. Finally, a futon that could be offered at a much a lower price point. Black metal frames were being imported from China, Malaysia and Taiwan. Many of the early black metal frames were packaged with an import mattress made up of ground up textile materials and a colored covering with tufts. These packages were often anywhere in price from $199 - $249 and started out in specialty futon shops as a great way to introduce customers on a budget into a lower priced futon option. It was soon discovered though that these frames were not such a bargain that they appeared to be.
A good quality finger jointed cross rail might be just as strong as a solid cross rail in many ways, it still accepts a downward pressure that can force poor quality joints to loosen. Experience shows that a solid continuous hardware cross rail is less likely to break than a segmented one. If the futon you are considering buying has segmented stretcher rails, ask the dealer to explain the history of that manufacturer's products with this system. Ask if a cross rail does fail, what the dealer's policy is about replacement. Although, most dealers generally will not pay for shipping, they should at least offer the replacement part for free with in the span of the warranty.
The design of the futon cover is also important. The cover should have a zipper three-quarters of the way around. This ensures that you can get the cover on and off easily. Many covers skimp on the zipper opening in order to keep the price down. It is worth an extra $50 to get a better design. After the first time you struggle to put on the cover, you will wish that you had coughed up the extra cash.
