Compatto Revolving Guide

Thanks for purchasing the Compatto Revolving Wall Bed

Important Note: Expand Furniture Inc declines all liability caused by the incorrect assembly of the bed or failure to mount the bed. If you fail to mount the wall bed to the wall or correctly fasten it, we do not take responsibility for this.

The basic assembly is the same for the Shelf, TV and Table models. The shelf placement is just at different heights. Please follow the guide and manual below for all 3 installs:

For the TV Model you will run the power cord from above the unit down through the top through the opening.

Choose not to install all the shelves depending on your TV size. This can be adjusted after installing the base bed at easily.
You can wall mount your TV with your own bracket or use the provided metal bar.

Helpful Notes & Tips for all installs:

  1.  Clear your room as much as possible before you start the install. Unpacking the panels will take some time, longer than many expect, so do this in advance of your install. You will need a power drill, screw driver, wall anchors and a ladder.
  2. All Compatto installs are do it yourself assembly and require wall mounts. It is up to you to determine your wall type, make sure it is safe and correctly mount the wall bed to your wall safely and properly. It is best to hit studs if you have drywall and make sure to use the correct wall anchors for your wall type. You can always install extra brackets and anchors for added security and peace of mind. Your local hardware store or your handyman/contractor should be able to advise on this. We suggest using anchors with weight capacity of at least 100lbs each and using 8 of them for added security. Toggler Snap Toggle Anchors have been a popular choice for Drywall with wood or steel studs. Please do your due diligence for your wall type.

Lock Guide:

On the left side of the system you are to install the lock here. The latchbolt is to rest in between the metal bracket opening.


Here is a reference of where to place the lock metal. Note the circular hole.


Latch Bolt: Here is a picture of the Latch Bolt resting in front of the lock area. You would pull the latch down and move it forward a half inch so it rests in between the metal work to hold it securely.














On page 5 of the manual, you will want to insert this metal beam between the C1 and C2 piece for an improved aesthetic look.
If this is not installed this is fine, and is only noticeable when looking for the piece.

If you have softwood floors, it may be best to lay down a rolling mat to avoid any indentations in your floor where the center moves as the unit rotates around, or you can have a firmer surface to help distribute the weight around. If you have thick carpets, it may also help to have a rolling mat if you find the unit is not moving as smoothly. We can get a metal plate for this purpose as well, inquire if interested. This does not need to be a specialised piece as this is just making a smoother surface for the wheel to roll on and distribute the weight on the floor.

Decorations and weight capacity:

The system is best used for a mix of storage and decorative items rather than only heavy stored items.
We suggest putting heavier items in the middle to better balance when rotating. (the weight is then on the center wheel rather than the outsides where turn)
For example you might have some books in the middle of a shelf and then some plants or other decor on the outside.

This system is very compact and designed to be thin and functional. You will have room for sheets and a thin duvet but a thicker blanket or pillows will not close in this system. Consider leaving just the sheet on and adding other bedding once the bed is open.

For best long term use we suggest just cleaning the bed with a Swiffer or duster, and avoid moisture if possible.
For a deeper clean: Wipe with warm, soapy water on a soft damp cloth. Dry thoroughly.
Dust may build up on the bottom of the cabinet inside the wall bed. With the bed opened this area can accessed from underneath and be cleaned with a duster or a vacuum on occasion.
Dust might build up above the bed, a duster can be used here to clean.
Mount/Anchor checks: We suggest you check in on your wall mount and anchor install on occasion to make sure it is still strongly secured.
