A piece of cr%p
By Darrell, bought for my mother
from Rochester, NY
About Me Budget Shopper
Comments about Sheet And Blanket Support:
I received NO directions on how to put it together and the article does not say that it does NOT fit a single size bed. Also, very poor customer service at Miles Kimball to return it. Easier to throw it away and let them keep the money than argue about it.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Midrange Shopper
I have been using this product for 2 weeks and have to say I am impressed. It is holding up my sheet and a heavy comforter. The product is pretty intuitive to assemble. The rods are a bit "thin," so I hope the design holds up over time. It works well for my queen-size mattress; I recommend ordering 2 if you have a king.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
My husband loves it. Highly recommend

Love this -my fix for a higher lift...
By Christmas Carole
from Roseville, CA
I love this product but, yes, it does need to be redesigned for today's thicker mattresses. I made my own fix by buying two of these. You will not need the flat section of the second unit. Take the second set of arms and attach it to the first set of arms with strong filament tape to the height you need. Use lots of strong tape in 6 or 7 places per arm. This secures the weight of the blankets and also raises them higher to fit your needs. If you don't make it too high it will fold down nicely as it was designed to do. I honestly cannot sleep properly without this blanket support. Try my fix and I believe you will enjoy what it does for your comfort.

sheet & blanket support
I totally think the sheet/blanket suppoort is over priced for the POOR quality... It does NOT stay in place and weight of a single fleece blanket will cause it to collasp on 1 side or the other.. Would NOT recommend it..However, the "BATHTUB STEP" is of great high quality and fits great at my mobilehome tub.. My daughter is even interested in it..The doggie steps: well my doggy won't use them!!

Good, but needs design improvements
Few blanket lifters are easy to lower during the day (without removing them completely). This product is easy to fold the arms across each other in order to make the bed without there being a tent at the bottom. Bad news is that as it is designed, the arms are very far out to the sides of the bed and do not lift the covers high enough. Worse, the blankets often slide off one or both sides during the night because of the design and also because the supports are slick, coated metal. It would be helpful if the supports had a neoprene cover or even a strip of fabric across the top. I taped strips of the soft, loopy side of velcro over two places on each arm and that helps prevent sheet slippage. When set up as designed, sometimes as I rolled over, the support would poke me in the foot (alarming) and the rubber tips that came with it fell off immediately and I had to replace them with ones that are tighter. Worst was that the support would not stay up in a higher position and would collapse. To fix this, I removed the rubber end caps from the metal support that the arms are attached to at the base and inserted a very thick plastic spacer over that and then wrapped it with a hard, but flexible rubber gasket like product that you might use to weather proof something -- only more rigid. That fix allows me to stabilize the support arms higher up and customize them so that they are almost at an 75 or 80 degree angle. This prevents the supports from accidentally poking me in the foot at night and also lifts the blankets high enough up on both sides. This fix has no impact on the ability to then fold the arms closed each morning. I have not found anything better, but it would be a lot better if there was a built in way to better secure the arms at a variety of heights for people with different sized mattresses or different sized feet. We have standard height mattresses and with the adjustments I made, it's really the best for our use as we want it to disappear easily when we make the bed during the day. We have an adjustible bed and it is also one of the few that would work well with our set up. Others run as high as 80 or 90 dollars and for the money, if you're willing to tinker with the design, it's a sturdier product than the ones shaped like a "U" and it's lasted a long time and is therefore a good value if you are willing or able to put up with or address the shortcomings and lack of the ability to adjust the height of the blanket support arms.

Satisfactory only after I modified it.
from Charlevoix, Michigan
The item did not stand straight up as shown in the catalog and on-line picture. We purchased this product to keep bedding away from my wife's feet following foot surgery. As it came, it would not have been satisfactory for our needs. To make it stand up straight, I had to fashion a piece of wood to hold the arms at a good distance. Then, to keep it from collapsing side-to-side, I used heavy duty nylon string to hold it upright. After that, the product was usable. Thank you for the opportunity to comment on this product.

Free feet at last!
By Mountain girl
from Knoxville, TN
It keeps the weight and pressure of covers off my feet. I have slept so much better since I started using it every night.
Looks good but doesn't perform
from Salem, OR
This is easy to put together, but it does not stay put. The arms fall down with movement and are not tall enough to keep the covers off. I am going to send this back. I was disappointed.
