Ikea Lonset slats under bed in 5.0TA

Hi, We saw the posts for using Ikea slats on the queen bed in the 19. We got a set used on Craigslist and thought we could use them without modifications.. Once we wrestled them under the mattress we realized they are just a bit too long. We sawed the vertical ends flush with the horizontal ends (about 1/2 inch). Fits perfectly. Does raise the factory mattress about 3 inches, but we can still sit up. (Husband is 6'2") Really made the bed much more comfortable. Thanks for the tips.

Glad they fit with a minimum of trimming. You got off lucky. In the 19 more fitting is required because of the rounded corners.

They do make the bed more comfortable but I also think that providing total ventilation to the underside of the mattress is a big plus also.

We did it for the comfort and ventilation factor. I saw the cutting and bracing needed for the 19. We are not handy people, so I was glad there was minimal trimming needed.
