Mind of I copy?

I had a company called Hatchlift.com recommended for gas lifts for my 264BH that also did not come with bed lifts and after adding 4 inch memory foam the wife and I both have health problems and lifting was almost impossible. I would NOT recommend using Hatchlift.com unless you are replacing a gas cylinder that he can match, he does not know anything about the new lighter weight TT's, his instructions are written up for a 3/4 inch particle board frame and 3/4 particle board under the mattress. I could not even him to respond to me and give me the closed length of the gas cylinders he sent me. Total aggravation. I did finally build out wood supports on the box frame and under the 1/2 inch plywood till I could get the cylinders to close in a horizontal position - this is the most important thing is that your cylinders are horizontal when closed!

The ones he did send me were over strength and I too was scared of the Murphy bed situation. I picked up 2 screen door hooks with safeties to put on each front corner, easy to unhook or hook and will prevent any Murpy bed action even when traveling. I also feel these give some added security if someone left a front storage compartment door unlocked and a skinny dishonest person wanted to try to crawl in and push up the bed to get into camper.

I do love the handle idea - this I do want to steal from you!! I'll trade you the screen door hook safety idea!!

FYI... The link is for 100lbs rated gas shocks which is what comes stock on the 29BHS. I ordered a set without knowing they were already mounted. I think what I am going to do is mount one of the old ones as extra help.
