Better than described, it was lower than a previous handle which makes it easier for my wife to reach over it to get things from her night table.

Helps a lot. Just the right size to grab onto without blocking entry or exit. We should have bought something like this a long time ago.

Yes - in most cases. There must be a flat and secure surface for the mattress and bed rail frame to rest on (i.e. a plywood panel). If the flat surface has gaps or holes, the bed rail frame could drop through, twist or become unstable.

The Assista-Rail extends under the mattress 36"/914mm deep and 19.75"/502mm wide. The Assista-Rail has three horizontal rails. There is 3.50"/89mm of spacing between the top rail and middle rail. There is 2.50"/64mm from the middle rail to the bottom rail.

The Assista-Rail has several height settings to accommodate various mattress heights (i.e. slim profile, pillow-top, etc.). The height settings range from 18-22"/457-559mm.
