You know how annoying it is after you've made the bed to perfection, but then after you sleep in it, the sheets and blankets are all skewed and/or sliding down the foot of the bed? Drives me nuts, so I thought of another solution. Three small posts mounted horizontally on the foot of the bed. Two near each corner, and one in the middle. Make the bed to your specifications, and then mark where the posts come to on the bedding. Then, attach grommets into the bedding at the marks. Now, the next time you make the bed, you simply slip the bedding onto the posts, cap the posts so that the bedding does not become dislodged, and voila - your bedding stays put. Also helps with the eternal "which end goes where" question. Grommets don't lie!

       Now there's a bizarre sexual fantasy - wanting to take Grommet to bed...

       I voted for, but it sounds like a type of fitted sheet to me.

       Grommets are young hodads, aka gremlins or gremmies. Some even call them surf cadets. What are you doing with quite young, beginning surfers in your bed?

       Not those grommets, silly. The round brass kind.

       Good form and poise on that unhijack - I give it a 5.9. Now, to co-conspiritorially nonhijack this a bit further, shouldn't we look at a way to make your tangent of the quasi-monster-cave/reading room/good clean fun with possibility of whatever undercover a practical ends>means justifier? It'd prevent neck strain and save flashlight batteries.

       I had a similar idea except I think that instead of using grommets, we use magnets - where: the mattress has metal squares on the corners and in the middle of each edge, the normal bedsheet is tucked into place, then these strong magnets (with padding on top) are used to clamp down the bedsheet onto the metal squares on the mattress. Saves puncturing the bedsheet or getting special bedsheets.
