The sleeping "platforms" both have two support poles that folding out in the normal manner.

However, they all have a "bend" in them and the bracketo doesn't stop at 90 deregression more like 100 or 110.

This means if you fold them out completely they are not vertical but angled. Is this how they should be? I have been leaving them vertical but perhaps I'm doing it wrong!

Thanks

you can resize them in photobucket under 'edit'.

The poles shouldn't really be bent, and mine are completely vertical. They are adjustable in height for uneven ground so the bed boards will remain flat.

As a child my families menu consisted of two choices: take it or leave it.

Its not like the poles have been bent by accident, all four are exactly the same, its certainly how they are meant to be I just cant work out if the poles are meant to be vertical as I had them or angled.

perhaps having the mounting plate at more than 90 degrees means that in the event of them being pushed outwards rather than inwards for whatever reason there is some movement rather than a failure of the pole of the mounting.

guess I'll stick with them being vertical.

havent discovered photobucket so will look at that for the future pictures

thanks
