Bunk Hinge Placement on 1977 Boler

I'm a new owner of 1977 Boler. All the cushions have been recovered, including the upper bunk. As I washed all the coverings & aired out the cushions, I had to remove screws from the hinge, although I left the hinge in place. However, I am not sure that this L-shaped hinge was reinstalled properly by a PO, so am wondering if anyone can tell me how the hinge should be.

Right now, it appears as the the top of the L hinge itself would act as a support resting under the the bunk, which, even for a child seems a little worrisome (See A in attached drawing). Should the bunk instead hang down from the hinge (? thanks for your help.

Hi Amy, in my Boler, it is similar to your original installation drawing except that the hinge is about 2" inset from the edge of the top bunk plywood base. Mine is definitely the original arrangement, the top bunk wouldn't be able to fold down properly if it was attached like your 'B' diagram.

I thought it seemed flimsy as well, but in use it's very sturdy, I think the max. weight is about 120lbs. My 4 year old has slept there and also jumped around up there quite a bit with no worries.
