my first real life mod of my scamp
couple weeks ago me and gramma and one of our grand daughters "camped out" in front of my garrage in the scamp
of course being 9 years old she wanted to sleep in the upper bunk, i figured it would be fine.
at 4a.m. there was a hellashish whoomp and i knew right away jo had just landed on the floor.ok,,,,ghonna have to do something about that.
oh,,,,the grand daughter is 9,,,,not gramma....though i probably didn't have to explain that part.....
so 1 piece of clear pine 1x4, 4 feet long. a little router and stain and finish work.
2 pieces of conduit, 8 inches long. flatten one end with a hammer and drill a hole for the mount screw. in the other end 3 inches up a hole parallel with the flattened tab, with a bolt threw it. screw a nut on the bolt all the way to the head first, then put it threw the hole, then two more nuts.
place the tubes in the bunk supports and the nuts will position them.
with the board held in position, top slightly above the end of the flattened tab, one 3/4 inch screw holds it in position, but don't tighten it down tight.
by placing the tubes in the bunk support you don;t have to measure to get them the right distance.
by using one screw, and not making it too tight, when you lift the board assembly out, the tubes swivel out of the way for easy storage.
i swear scamp
should make these at least an option , if not ,included with a bunk bed.
i will post pictures tonight, and will probably send them to scamp with my blessing to use it if they want.
think total cost is about $4 if you have some screws and some leftover finish/stain around. or could paint
