Since these were hollow, if enough force or weight was applied to a section of these bars they would bend or break out. People were finding that the fail rate on these frames to be quite high and when they would try to return them to the stores they would discover these frames only carried a 90 day warranty. Hardly the type of warranty that would suggest this piece of furniture could provide at least a couple years of use. Instead the manufacturers seemed to be satisfied that 90 days was an adequate time of warranty for their products. I would compare this to an automobile manufacturer who warranties a car for the first 3,000 miles. They're basically telling you that after a few months of driving your vehicle is now out of warranty and if anything happens to your vehicle you'll need to buy another one or pay for parts and servicing as you've met the expected life of your vehicle. Quite unbelievable, really.

Again the hollow nature of these strecther rails presented issues with breakage and bending. Early designs involved a steel tooth design that would fit into pocket welds on the arms. These would snap off over use. The alternative design was to run a bolt through the arms and into the rails. While better it still did not address the issue of bending stretcher rails.

Remember that glue is an excellent bonding agent for a the type of wood your futon frame is likely made out of. Gluing and screwing a futon frame together is even more desirable. The screw not only adds reinforcement, but is drives the wooden pieces closer together acting like a vice while the glue dries before shipping.

Not only do they reinforce the slat, but for those companies whose stress supports fit in snuggly against the front and back framing boards--they have the added benefit of helping to keep the futon frame from skewing when it is converted from bed to sofa. Likewise, stress supports with three screws per support are better than those with only two.

These came with imported mattresses that were constructed to be no more than 5\" to 6\" thick and contained ground up textile or fabric scrap. Various colored outer coverings that were not removable were tufted around the mattress materials making these difficult to clean. They retailed very cheap and individuals on a budget recognized the futon design from higher end wood models and felt these were indeed bargains since futons had a very good reputation for longevity and quality construction. Unfortunately these black tubular frames would begin to give futons a bad name.

You may not be used to the design elements or particularly care for them for your space, but you can adopt some of the concepts to help create the serene space of your desires. It isn't just about having futon mattresses in your space and nothing on the walls. This is simply boring, not esthetically pleasing.

Because the bars were round and the mattresses had nothing in the way of support, you could lay on the mattress and feel each bar across the mattress. For some this may have been all they could afford in the way of futon. Unfortunately the import manufacturers of these frames and mattresses weren't helping anyone to get a comfortable sofa bed with the materials being used.
