Not for long term use
I bought these less than a year ago. The bed metal bed posts slipped around in these, but I made it work. That was not the worst of it. After 4 months of a person less than 150lbs sleeping on these, the metal frame broke through these post in the middle of the night. I can only imagine someone heavier or two people these posts will wear through sooner dropping the person(s) on to the floor. Ended up being complete junk that went in the trash and a waste of my money.

I had these bed risers on my full-sized bed for a month and I loved them. They gave me so much more space for my tiny room. However, my boyfriend (who is an average sized guy) sat on my bed one day and within five seconds, one of the legs busted through a riser. I guess putting the weight on one side was too much for it, but it still seemed a little scary that they weren't built for that kind of thing. I would suggest getting them for a smaller bed and being careful about how much weight you put on them! Probably best for a twin bed.

a king's throne
I am 5feet tall and most of my furniture reflects such height. The problem is that my fiancÃ© is 6 foot 2 inches. We purchased the bed risers for under his chair in the living room and now he can sit comfortably and it is not so hard on his knee's when he gets up. He now calls his chair a throne and wants to decorate it like the iron throne from game of thrones.

better for small beds
I tried these risers first because they cost less money. Unfortunately, after a few weeks one of the bed frame corners broke through the riser. I have a queen sized bed.
One employee said the risers are more for twin sized beds. Then another said she also had a queen sized bed and she'd had no problems. Go figure! Now I use their wood risers, which cost twice as much : ( but they work
Make sure you keep the bed legs in the middle of the riser, as that is the strongest point.
