FAQ

Will I hit my feet on it while I sleep?

Our satisfied customers report that after a period of a week or so, your feet learn where the sides of The FootSleepGuard are. Beyond that initial period, your feet will very rarely contact it. You have the comfort of warm feet with no pressure from the covers, which allows better sleep, all night. As can be seen in the photo, there is plenty of room for your feet without hitting the sides.

The space under the upper loop looks a little big, will I get a draft and my feet get cold?

No. In the up position, the area where your feet will be is 12 ½ inches tall. That gives you plenty of foot room, but not enough room for a draft. The inside width is 17-1/8 inches; the outside is 19-1/8 inches. The device was designed this size because it takes up just about exactly 1/2 of a queen-size bed.

Does it fall off the bed, or fall over easily?

The rubber tips on the ends that sit on the bed provide a lot of friction. The lower loop sits at the end of the bed where the covers are tucked in, so it will not slide off the end of the bed. While it is technically possible for it to become dislodged, we have not found it to be a problem for our customers.

How did you come up with the FootSleepGuard?

This product, The FootSleepGuard, came about because the company founder, Mr. Tom Pender suffered foot-related pain for most of his life. After realizing that the covers on the bed forced his feet downward and pointed away from him, he decided to find something to keep the covers off his feet. Research on what was available on the market showed that only the old-style, fixed blanket supports were available. Not wanting to have a large lump in his bed during the day, Mr. Pender set out to the garage to come up with something better. With some PVC pipe and fittings, the first FootSleepGuard was born.

The first model was set up in a fixed upright position, so although it was easily removable from the bed, it was not easily stored. Back to the garage, and the design as you see it today came to be. The FootSleepGuard design innovations make it unique in that it fits todays thicker, pillow top mattresses, will hold the heavier, top quality comforters, and is easily folded and removable. The US Patent Office agreed that this was a unique and novel product, and granted US Patent 6,240,581 on our product.
