Designing folding legs for a bunk bed .

    Designing folding legs for a bunk bed.....

    Im having trouble finding a suitable hinge mechanism which would allow 2 legs under a bed to be locked and pulling them down into a vertical position they would lock. Does anyone have any ideas or links to a suitable hinge design.

    It might be easiest to just find a damaged folding banquet table, such as is used at community dinners, and snipe the legs from it.
