Bed Rail Safety Guard
The Bed Rail Safety Guard from Stander enables bed rails and bed handles to be used with an extra soft mattress. By preventing compression in the mattress, the Safety Guard helps to prevent bed rail entrapment.
How to Position
your Safety Guard
The Bed Rail Mattress Guard must be centered with the bed rail as shown in the figure to the right. If the bed rail is extendable, first extend the rail and then center the safety guard. This product requires a fitted sheet to be installed over the top of the mattress guard after installation.
THERE IS A MUCH GREATER RISK OF ENTRAPMENT AND INJURY/DEATH WHEN USING BED RAILS WITH A SOFT MATTRESS! A soft mattress increases the risk that a person’s head, arm, or leg could become entrapped between the mattress and a rail. Entrapment can cause injury or death.
To ensure it is safe to use a bed rail with your mattress, test your mattress by taking your fist and applying about 12lbs (5.4kg) of weight on the edge of the mattress. If the mattress is soft enough that you can compress the mattress by about 2in (51cm) when applying 12lbs (5.4kg) of weight, do not use a bed rail without the bed rail safety guard. If you have any questions about installation, please call 800-506-9901.
