Additional Zinus 14 Inch Smartbase Elite Information


Set-up with the Zinus 14'' SmartBase Elite is only a two step process for most bed sizes and can be accomplished by individuals though it is quicker to have a helping hand. From twin to queen, just unpack, unfold, and hand tighten the legs so they stay in place. For the King size, there is one additional step. The King is two separate bases that are bolted together and require a couple more minutes of assembly, but this is far from arduous for most folks.

Quality & Durability

There have been complaints about Zinus' other SmartBase (not the Elite), which has thinner steel wire rather than the thick crisscrossed steel slats that the Elite has. The Elite however is quite strong and should be durable for those of most sizes.


With the exception of the King sized foundation, noise should not be an issue. For the King size, one reviewer noted that a concern about the bolts rubbing and causing minor noise. This can be alleviated with washers (not included) between the bolts.

What Mattresses are it Good For?

This should be a good option for most mattresses. If possible, check your mattress warranty to ensure that they don't have any additional foundation rules before purchasing.
