We recommend you set up the mattress with 2 people. The Hybrid should be opened within 3 weeks of delivery. The Pro and Original should be opened within 30 days of delivery.
- Bring the box to the room you want to put the mattress in. Note: It's easier to set up your mattress with 2 people.
- Remove the vacuum-sealed mattress from the box. Pro Tip: Lay the box on its side to pull the mattress out
- Unwrap the outer layer of plastic and unfold the mattress.Warning: Do not attempt to cut into the plastic before its unfolded!
- Align the top of the mattress with the top of the bed frame.
- CAREFULLY use scissors to cut away the plastic wrapping. The mattress will start expanding immediately.
- Your mattress is good to sleep on right away, and we recommend giving it a full 24-48 hours to completely decompress.
