Double Sleeping Pads

Hey Buzzards,

So I have a customer I am working with that is looking for a double pad to put across Roll-A-Cots, we make our Silverbacks here and can do that however we are still struggling with the bars in the center and how to make it so that snuggling in the middle works for those who are cuddly folks Has anyone out there found a solution they may want to share? Thanks in advance and I hope you all have a super splashy fun weekend!

Keep it Right Side Up,
Renee

The answer is 4 pads. Lay the first set directly on the cots and let them migrate to the middle of the cot. Then take the top pads and connect them with rhino clips so they can't separate. The top two will hide the bars. The bonus is you get to sell them a total of 4 pads👍

Ha Ha... now I am ready to do that for myself, 2 on the bottom and have a double made for the top, I like it! That makes for one expensive river bed.

Re:4 pads, if the cots are extrawide the pads fit/nest better between down between the bars. Then the top pad is free of the bars completely. Use a strap around both too pads to keep them tofether.5 Or have the bottom pads be a bit skinnier, if doing custom, and then regular cots.

Or if you are making a custom double pad already, make it extra thick, say 6 inches. Have a space in the middle cut out thinner to, say, 2 inches, which will account for the middle set of bars. That way the pads are thick enough to prop the sleeper up over the bars, but the bars are also covered with padding so it ends up being one smooth surface all the way across the top.
