    Help me adjust this stupid bed

    Well, after months and months of climbing this stupid thing, I've finally gotten sick of it. Trying to figure out how to adjust this stupid thing but am having a problem of where to start... I remember seeing someone do it but cannot remember how. Dealing with a pulled tendon so not jumping down from the bed every morning would be an awesome thing, yea I'm that short.

    Here's what I'm looking at:




    Pretty sure this is what I need to focus on. All four sides are the same

    You're in a dorm, using their provided furniture, right? They usually frown upon destructive modifications to their property. I believe your best and only option, if you still want a bedframe, is to roll the headboard and footboard 180° and reconnect the rails. Otherwise, you could forgo the frame altogether and either disassemble it, put the mattress directly on the floor, and stash the frame in a corner of your room, or find someone else on your floor who wants to use it as a loft storage-space to their bed until the end of the semester.

    Bro are you sleeping on a desk??

    Go to home depot and get a longer ladder, problem solved!

    I'm not quite sure what your trying to do, the ladder is suppose to move?

    Why would you want to watch your character get shot by a corrupt US General when you can watch him get eviscerated by an eight-foot alien in purple body armour?

    Oh the furniture can definitely be modified with no consequences, they were made like that from what I understand. I'm just trying to get the part where mattress is lowered since I'm tired of climbing up and down the thing (ladders and chairs worked HORRIBLY...). What I'm looking at is the black things I pictured above and the little hole (possible screw?), because clearly it can be taken apart to lower it.

    Haha it looks like that doesn't it? Na, just a cheap ol' bed... Just trying to get the thing lowered is all I want to do.

    Can you lift the bed base up and push the frame toward it?

    Took me awhile but that did it... Turns out some rusty was preventing me from lifting it up. Took me about three hours but I finally rearranged not only my bed but my entire room cause of it.
