ConveyorQuilt Sleep System

Never get left without the covers

Imagine, never having the covers stolen again. It's possible, with the ConveyorQuilt Sleep System.

Based on the latest in hand drying bathroom technologies, it is, simply put, a bed with a two rollers underneath, running vertically. Sheets and blankets are actually loops of fabric that are slipped between spring-loaded rollers and over the mattress through a locking gate system at the foot of the bed. When one person pulls on the blanket, the springs in the rollers engage and turn in the same direction and the excess blanket slips underneath the bed and rolls back up the other side!

One disadvantage is you can't fold the sheets down so you have to slide in and out of bed.

But in the morning, making it is a snap. Just flip the "Morning" switch and the rollers turn in opposite directions tightening the covers!

       I like it, and I'm sure the blanket manufacturers like it too. they will sell twice as much blanket per bed.

       I personally don't have this problem. And I think the whole getting in/out of bed thing would be too much of a hassle. [-]

       Hmmm... Similar to RollaSheet, but different in that the ConveyorQuilt Sleep System would be a continuous loop covering that can rotate either clock or counterclock wise.   

       The getting in/out wouldn't be too difficult, with the optional "Turn Down" switch that reverses the tension from a Made bed, giving the slack at the top of the bed. Flip to the switch "Sleep" position after you're snuggled in, and the covers gently tighten.
