Squeaky Bed?

We recently put together our HOPEN king size bed and it is incredibly squeaky. Just sitting on it or rolling over at night is terrible as it squeaks so loudly. It seems to be the four outside frame pieces that are squeaking. Any advice on how to make it stop? Anyone else's bed squeak like this? We are to the point where we are ready to put the bed on Craigslist and get rid of it! Any help would be greatly appreciate it.

Re: Squeaky Bed?

Are you sure you tightened the screws enough? Try giving the screws another turn and see what happens.

If this doesn't work, you could try loosening each corner and slipping in some sort of "buffer" between the side rails and head and foot boards - a piece of paper sandwiched between the surfaces will do the trick.
