A universal adjustable bed is provided to accommodate twin, twin
extra long, full extra long, queen, etc. adjustable beds through
a single adjustable bed mechanism which can be accommodated in beds
irrespective of the differences in sizes thereof. The adjustable
bed mechanism includes headboard and footboard adjusting linkage
mechanisms and drive mechanisms therefor with associated head, seat,
thigh and foot boards, all unitized in a single assembly which can
be "drop-in" assembled to an associated bed foundation.
Significantly, the support frame includes locating or connecting
points which correspond in transverse distances to like support
points of the bed foundation irrespective of the width of the specific
bed foundation. In this manner a single universal adjustable bed
mechanism can be dropped-in and connected to an appropriate bed
foundation to form a bed of virtually any conventional size.
An adjustable bed having an upper frame mounted to translate with

the head support automatically from a first position horizontal
and coplanar to the back support to an inclined position, and the
latter mechanism being effective upon further operation to pivotally
move the back support from its horizontal position to any one of
a number of inclined positions without altering the inclination
of the head support relative to the back support.
An adjustable bed rail capable of gripping a mattress either alone
or together with a bedspring to hold the protective side rail in
place. A locking assembly is adjustable to adjust for the height
