AbstractA bed making device with a structural support base adapted to receive springs and mattress with two horizontal guide members attached at either end of the base on each side. A carrier arm is slideably positioned on each pair of guide members and contains a retractable detent pin at the top. The pin attaches to a mating opening in the bed linens and the linens are attached to the pins at the foot of the bed. A reversible electric motor with a two position foot switch, limit switch and gear driven belt drive is attached to the arms electromechanically, thereby transmitting linear direction to the mechanism. The carrier arms are horizontally propelled simultaneously forward pulling the bed linens in place. When the linens are so positioned the detent pin is retracted and the arms continue forward to a position near the head of the bed where they stop automatically.
