Your wish is my command...
You will need 4 measurements:
- the distance between the bed board and the floor in the closed position and open position
- the length of the linear actuator extended and compressed position.
Insert spacers where and if needed.
I also bolted a metal plate (12x18x1/4") to the top of the bed board, above the actuator for support. The bolts go through the plate to the actuator.
NEWS FLASH: Sorry the switch did not come with the unit.. I will look up the switch and post it here.
I can not locate my invoice for the switch, but it is a DPDT / (On) - Off - (On) type.
Do NOT purchase the 16" model, it will not fit under the bed when closed.
