Step 14 Leg Cross Bar
Leg crossbar is an optional step, but it is recommended because installing a leg crossbar between the two legs that come with your Easy DIY Murphy Bed Hardware kit will allow you to fold up the legs in one easy step instead of folding one leg at the time.
In our instructions, you can use a piece of tube or a wooden rod. The wooden rod is easier to use and if you paint it black it will match the metal legs and it will look nicer.
You can use a drill with a spade bit to make the leg cross bar out of wooden rod. Instructions are provided in our construction guide for the construction of the leg cross bar.
