Is it just me, or is that picture in the ad (of a fat middle-aged man on a bed with a young child) at least a little bit creepy?
Isn’t it though? It appears there isn’t even a mattress on the bed and they are laying on the springs. Ouch. Doing sit-ups no less. Anachronisms often placed in a modern context have renewed meanings or messages. Perhaps they were simpler times? Or are we just more complex? Either way- I agree with you and was waiting for someone to comment.
“…of a fat middle-aged man on a bed with a young child.”
Sometimes a father and child actually lay in bed. I know every one is always quick to judge, but for god sakes – get a life. And why are you so worried about the fact that he is middle aged and fat?
That “way sagless” tagline is rather an odd – way – of putting it, rather a Wayne’s-World sort of construct.
I just inherited a Way Sagless Spring. It’s still sagless! Does anyone have any idea if they have any value ?

Hi I have one twin size sagless spring bed and would also like to know if there is any value to it,and if anyone knows how it was used, all i have is the spring base, i would like to get a head board and foot board for it ,mabey even a mattress (new one ofcorse), thanks ant
No clue Ant – but there is a good chance someone passing through may know. All the best, Frank
I have a Way Sagless spring set on my bed! The bed itself is from my grandparents, and it looks as if it may once have been a platform bed. The platform was removed and the springs put on before my father inherited it. At some point between 1971 (when my father got it) and 1999 (when I got it), a large board was added between the springs and the mattress, for stability I would guess.
At any rate, the springs themselves are still, indeed, sagless. Testing with my hand shows very little give, and there’s very little lateral movement when sitting on the bed, too. Yay!
Ant, I would suggest using this as the box spring portion of a bed – get a regular bed stead (headboard, etc) and a mattress and use this instead of buying a box spring.
