The Bedside Extend-A-Rail by Able Life allows you to adjust the length of your bed rail while you are in bed. Simple push a button and extend it to 30″ for fall prevention. For a handle to help getting in and out of bed safely, adjust it back to 20″. And like all of our bed rails, it blends in with your bedroom (like another piece of furniture) to maintain the comforting feeling of your home.


Extends 20″-30″ in Length

The Bedside Extend-A-Rail is one of the only bed rails in the world that can extend in length after having been installed. The bed rail sits at 20″ in its shortest length and can be extended to 30″ with the push of a button.

The extension helps to offer full fall protection during the night while also making it easier to maneuver around the bed rail when transferring in and out of bed.


Use to Transfer Out of Bed

The guard rail of the Bedside Extend-A-Rail doubles as a standing support handle to help get in and out of bed. The safety railing supports up to 300 pounds.

Use the handle to transfer from bed to a walker, rollator, wheelchair or bedside commode.


Secures to Bed Frame with Safety Strap

The Extend-A-Rail is easily assembled and installed in the matter of minutes. To install the rail on a traditional bed, slide the base piece between the mattress and box spring (or slats if using on a slat bed).

The bed rail comes equipped with a nylon safety strap. Run the safety strap underneath the mattress to the opposite side of the bed and buckle around the bedframe. For detailed assembly instructions, download the Assembly Instruction PDF below.

Trying to decide which bed rail is best suited for yourself or a loved one can be a difficult task. To help make the process easier, we have featured “Five Things you Need to Know Before Purchasing the Right Bed Rail” in our blog.


When purchasing a bed rail here’s a few helpful questions to consider:

    • What is the intended use of the bed rail? If needing full fall protection from nighttime falls, longer safety railings are best. If you are in need of reliable assistance in and of out of bed, then a bedside safety handle would work best.
    • What type of bed do you own? The Bedside Extend-A-Rail is compatible with traditional beds with box spring, flat platform, or slats. The Bedside Extend-A-Rail is not intended for use on adjustable beds. For use on adjustable beds, try the Click-N-Go Bed Handle or Click-N-Go Extendable Bed Rail.
    • How thick is your mattress? Mattress thicknesses can alter the amount of railing that is exposed above the mattress. The Extend-A-Rail is intended to be used with mattresses ranging from 8″ to 15″ in thickness.
    • What is the preferred weight capacity? The Extend-A-Rail can support weights up to 300 pounds. If additional support is needed, we recommend finding a bariatric rail.
    • Will you need a bed rail away from home? If you are intending to travel with your bed rail, we recommend a lightweight and easily collapsible bed rail, like the Bedside Mighty Rail.

The Bedside Extend-A-Rail is compatible with most traditional beds with a box spring, flat platform, or slats. For safety reasons, we advise against using this rail on an adjustable or hospital bed.

No, for safety reasons, we do not recommend using this bed rail on adjustable beds at this time.

For use on adjustable beds, try the Click-N-Go Bed Handle or Click-N-Go Extendable Bed Rail.



The Organizer Pouch Accessory easily slides over the top of the Bedside Extend-A-Rail and secures with velcro. Keep convenient items like cellphones, remotes, medications, and books within hands-reach with the four-pocket organizer pouch accessory.


THERE IS A MUCH GREATER RISK OF ENTRAPMENT AND INJURY/DEATH WHEN USING BED RAILS WITH A SOFT MATTRESS! A soft mattress increases the risk that a person’s head, arm, or leg could become entrapped between the mattress and a rail. Entrapment can cause injury or death.

To ensure it is safe to use this product, test your mattress by taking your fist and applying about 12lbs (5.4kg) of weight on the edge of the mattress. If the mattress is soft enough that you can compress the mattress by about 2in (51cm) when applying 12lbs (5.4kg) of weight, do not use this product without the Bed Rail Safety Guard.
