Currently on my 3rd replacement BrendanThese have weak joints where the top and bottom slide into the metal bracket on the top and bottom bed frame, so if you put too much weight directly on top where the joints meet (which is completely reasonable if resting your back on the head board while reading or watching TV) it will snap on you, both parts failing, shredding, or bending in the process. Just hope it doesn’t happen in the middle of the night because it renders the bed frame unusable. (I’ve had this happen twice now, luckily I’m 10 minutes from IKEA) BUY SPARES of both this center beam and the SKORVA mounting plates it fits into if you don’t live close to IKEA or don’t want to sleep on the floor for a few nights. Actually on 2nd thought just get a different bedframe.
5 stars!MelanieThe midbeam is extremely durable and affordable. Very easy to install.
A nessassary part of our new bed.DudleyWe up graded from a Queen to King size bed. (the queen was also IKEA). This is the center support. It is well made and heavy duty. I'm impressed.
Does What It Needs ToSydneeDoes it's job!
Thankful that the part was still available however….FionaHad to buy a replacement part as the original failed… so good that a replacement available but bad that the original failed!
This item is must have for queen/king size bedDavidunfortunately, this item was not listed in our queen bed package. we had to go back to IKEA the next day to get this item. IKEA should including this item as part of queen/king bed package.
Does what it’s supposed to, until it doesn’tChelseaI’ve had the Hermes bed since June of 2019 (it’s now September 2023) and currently on my third or fourth ones of these center beams. Like other reviews say, the little “clip” that attaches it to the head/ foot board will randomly, without warning or reason, bend completely backwards (in my case RN, I moved my elbow on the bed and then the next second, I’m on the floor). Usually in the middle of the night scaring you awake. So if you live far from an IKEA (like I do, it’s about 1.5 hours) buy a couple as spares. You never know when you will need one at 10:30pm on a Wednesday night, haha.
Disclaimer: my spouse and I aren’t the smallest people so I’m sure weight can play a factor as well… I’ll be headed to IKEA in the morning and buying 3. One to replace the broken one I have now and 2 more for the closet as spares.
Great priceDonnaGreat value
ExcellentJudithUsing them for our bed in our van build
Collapsed!LindsayBent right in the middle down to the floor while getting into bed the other night, after only 3.5 months of use and broke a few slats while doing so. Having to replace everything but the bed frame despite being a single 182lb person, which it says it can handle, lol.
Broke in the middle of the nightKylieworked well for about 3ish years, then one of the parts that hooks into the brackets on the frame bent completely the wrong way when i laid on the bed randomly
Nice productClayI ordered these for my van build. They're nice and sturdy. I would of gave 5 stars but they were packaged poorly. The box was torn on both ends and pieces were partly out of the box when I received them. One I had to straighten where it connects with the bracket.
Won't lastTekeyahI've had it for a while, the part of the beam that hooks into the bed ripped. After a couple of months, it completely broke. I've purchased all my furniture from IKEA and the longer I have it the more I realize it'd all cheap and breaks in 1 - 2 years.
Very sturdy, good priceNicolaVery sturdy, good price
