This was such a waste of time and money. The assembly is so flawed. The rods you place into the boards are not threaded. You’re just supposed to force threaded screws into them. Let me add that the screws are not pointed but flat on the ends which is totally bizarre. We had to hold the rods super tight just to get them to stay still to do the screws. Talk about rug burn to the hands. Half way through we said screw it (no pun intended) and took it apart. It was just as difficult to pull apart. A good 2 hours wasted I would say. No parent wants to deal with this mess.
