Michael works for a program called Uncommon Good that teaches students about green energy. His home is located in Upland, California, a beautiful neighborhood with mature trees in a rural setting. He had just purchased a century-old home and wanted to preserve its look. Being a principal member of Uncommon Good, he was using the house to teach others how to go green. He called my service to repair his Japanese futon bed. 

This post shows the three steps of installing nine round rubber feet on each wooden leg. This ends the futon series and now the bed is safe and does not make sound when used.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows that rubber pad has been installed to each foot. There is a total of six feet so two packages needed to be purchased.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows all the middle legs of the futon bed had each leg installed.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows the last leg has a new rubber foot installed. This finishes the job.  The bed is now secured and the rubber feet will not make any sound.
