Disassembly of A Comfort Sleeper

Updated on June 10, 2014

Taking apart a Comfort Sleeper

Hi there. After posting my hub discussing the upgrades in "sleeper technology" used today, I received a comment inquiring whether the American Leather Comfort Sleeper can be disassembled. The short answer is Yes.

A common worry in purchasing a Comfort Sleeper is whether the piece can be delivered, given it's significant weight increase when compared to a traditional sleeper, as well as the fact that their depth, consistently at 40", exceeds that of a traditional sleeper or a standard sofa.

The Comfort Sleeper is known as a 'modular' piece, meaning the back, arms, and even the mattress (if needed), can be taken apart into smaller components. There are distinct stages involved, which allows for disassembly only to the point needed in order to cross any particular doorway.

When passing a sofa through a doorway, only the smallest dimension of the piece must be considered (either depth or height), as a sofa can be rotated or manipulated in any way in order to cross the threshold. In about 90% of deliveries where disassembly is required, simply unhooking the back of the Comfort Sleeper is enough. This involves unscrewing a single bolt on each side of the Sleeper, and as they say, "Presto"-- the back unhooks and your remaining height is only 20". This is small enough to pass through almost any doorway. In fact, given the ease of this process, the delivery guys from Sleepers In Seattle do this for all deliveries, as it significantly reduces the weight-- and the strain on their backs.

If needed, disassembly can be taken further, resulting in total component form as shown in the photo above. Still, this process requires only a single, 1/2" socket wrench. In fact, we recently delivered a Comfort Sleeper to a houseboat on Lake Union in Seattle- through the home's window!

Although many companies will not undertake this surprisingly easy task, Sleepers In Seattle specializes in all things sofa beds, and is happy to do whatever it takes to get the perfect sleeper to match your desires, delivered and set-up in your home; wherever or however you live.
