Why won’t my futon go up? If you feel like your futon is jammed and you are unable to fold or unfold it, the first thing to do is to remove everything laying on top. Sometimes a comforter or some part of the mattress cover can get stuck in the futon frame causing it to jam. Simply removing all such things can instantly solve the problem.
How do you keep a futon mattress up? Keep your futon on the frame – where it belongs! Place the futon slip stopper pad between the seat of the futon frame and the futon mattress to help prevent the futon from slipping. It fits all size futon frames.
How high are futons off the ground? The height of the seat deck of a futon, including an eight-inch mattress, averages 21 inches. This means that the fronts of the seats of many futons are actually higher off the ground than the seats of many sofas.
Can you put a mattress on top of a futon? With this said, many futons are made well enough to provide enough support for a regular mattress without modification or the addition of any type of mattress support. You just need to set your futon frame flat and lay your regular mattress on top of it and–voila!
