Can't trust a Murphy bed because everything that can go wrong will go wrong.

farkitallletitend: Can't trust a Murphy bed because everything that can go wrong will go wrong.


These things are perfectly safe if they are made and installed correctly. Yes, they are also the subject of comedy going back to Laurel and Hardy, because they are what they are. What this is about is cheap Murphy beds, without a counterweight (I bet you didn't know that was a thing), that are not even good enough to be a standard bed. They are not, I suspect, made in the USA. I disapprove of the Consumer Product Safety Commission stepping in. The people who buy cheap crap from China or Mexico need to learn, maybe the hard way, not to do that, and tell other people. Only by Facebook can positive change be assured. /s

Is that better or worse than Murphy beds being recalled for being pitched with a racially insensitive song?

So... reading up on this a bit it appears that "wall bed" and "murphy bed" aren't exactly the same thing. Murphy beds use springs, wall beds use pistons. The pistons didn't fail - it was the mounting to the wall. Apparently this wasn't necessarily that the beds were installed incorrectly, it's that the hardware they used for attaching the cabinet to the wall wasn't up to the task long-term and sometimes the cabinet would simply come detached from the wall and the whole thing would snap shut like a clam. The company is recalling the beds for those who want to get rid of them and paying for inspections + re-installations for those who want to keep them.

I tried to read the original article and got a full-screen bullshiat video pop-up scroll ad in my face. Don't care, never returning to that site, moving on because the Internet is a big place and there are other sites.

I read the headline wrong and assumed we were still talking pandemic. Air travel (and everything but driving yourself, I assume) is a pandemic waiting to happen--again. No masking, only cursory wipings-down, no space. Maybe I'm a touch bitter.
