Michael works for a program called Uncommon Good that teaches students about green energy. His home is located in Upland, California, a beautiful neighborhood with mature trees in a rural setting. He had just purchased a century-old home and wanted to preserve its look. Being a principal member of Uncommon Good, he was using the house to teach others how to go green. He called my repair service to repair his Japanese futon bed.
This posts show the six steps to secure the futon feet.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the the hardware plugs have fallen out of the wood footer that houses the lag screws that keep the structure safe.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows a top view of the lag screw and the plastic insert to keep it secure in the wood leg.
Step 3: Fig.3 shows a Stimson Bracket will be used to secure this bed. This one is on the side securing the side board to the existing head board. The bracket was secured using self drilling metal screws.
