|The Create-A-Bed® murphy bed mechanism||Other murphy bed mechanisms|
|State-of-the-art gas piston lift mechanism uses just a few moving parts. This durable, reliable commercial-grade mechanism is designed for daily use and is preferred for use in condos, homes and hotels including Walt Disney World® and DisneyLand® resorts. NO FLOOR MOUNTING – the mechanism is completely contained within the cabinet which attaches to the wall at the studs. Panel bed design eliminates bi-fold doors.||The original century-old folding bed mechanism design uses old-fashioned metal springs, a heavy metal frame and complicated floor mounting. Most require a cabinet with bulky bi-fold doors. Other systems use as many as 18 metal springs mounted on both sides of the head of the bed and are not intended for daily use.|
|Pistons install in seconds and are not subject to metal fatigue, breakage or catastrophic failure. Should a piston need to be replaced, it can be replaced in seconds without tools and without disassembling the bed. Once constructed, the bed assembles and installs in minutes.||Extreme caution, tools and heavy gloves must be used to install metal springs. Metal springs can break and cause injury and/or damage to the bed. Over time, metal springs can fatigue and stretch, causing the bed to sag out of the cabinet. Replacing metal springs is a complicated and potentially dangerous process that requires tools and major disassembly of the bed.|
|Unique locking leg mechanism prevents the bed from being lowered incorrectly and locks the bed inside the cabinet when not in use.||No way to lock the bed inside the cabinet.|
|Easily moved without permanent floor damage or holes in carpet.||Floor-mounted spring mechanism beds require complicated disassembly and will leave holes in the floor.|
