AbstractBedding and the means for securing it for use with a bed with headboard and footboard so that the mattress never need be lifted to make the bed or to strip it. The bottom sheet is the size of the top of the mattress, with a hem at the headboard end and a hem at the footboard end to accommodate a rod. The rod, with a protruding external wedge at each end, fits into one of several slots in an adjusting plate mounted at each outer edge of the headboard and footboard members at the area of the mattress, with the wedges on the rod fitting into corresponding notches in the slots in the adjusting plate to hold the sheet under tension. A similar rod with similar wedges is accommodated in a hem at the footboard end of the top sheet and a similar rod with similar wedges is accommodated in a hem at the footboard end of other bedclothing and fitted securely in other slots and notches in the adjusting plates mounted at the outer edges of the footboard member to hold the main body of these bedding items in place on top of the mattress.
