ouch!

hello. i bought a really cheap bed frame and all four corners have sharp edges..i cut my finger really deep the other day just making the bed. the edges are also shredding up my bed comforter. can someone tell me if there's any kind of plastic or rubber mold that i could put on the corners? maybe like silly puddy consistancy that get's hard or something...thanks a lot. jessica

possibley some JB weld, or maybe you could "dress" the sharp edges with a fine file, and sandpaper. The later is what i would do though. Thanks, Tony D.

Try some foam rubber wrapped with surgical tape or duct tape. -- Best Regards, Dennis J Sunday Home Inspection Systems Www.homeinspectionsystems.com

Go to the hardware store, and purchase a medium grade file for metal work. Also buy some medium crocus paper for sanding metal. Probably a 400 type crocus paper would be okay. File the edges to be smooth, and then use the sandpaper to make them more polished.

Take the frame apart and file the all the sharp edges, then use sandpaper. Prime, spray paint, and allow to dry for 2 weeks. (When was your last tetanus shot?)

If you purchased this bedframe recently and purchased it from a retail store, take it back for a refund. If the manufacturer's name is on the frame, contact them for correction. If they aren't interested, report them to the government or contact the 'Marketplace' TV show www.cbc.ca/consumers/market/ or such like. There are probably thousands of people exposed to the same hazards as you are from these bedframes and the public should know about it. Des

the electrical section.. is a liquid plastic/rubber... i used it to paint onto some under the auto hood wires that were exposed, but its the same stuff that they paint or dip onto the edge of handtools to make handles..... cost about 43.00 for a small can.. will probably work for what you want... you might want to file the sharp edges off before applying it??????
