FAQs

Answers to your Questions

Will it fit my bed?

Yes, since the BunkTrunk feet sit under the mattress, it should fit on any size bed.

What is a BunkTrunk and why do I need one?

A BunkTrunk is a secure foot locker that sits above your feet on your college dorm bunk. Because it sits above your feet, it takes no dorm floor or desk space. It has a digital combo lock so you don’t need to have another key, and it secures all of your things like: laptops, books, jewelry, money and other items you don’t want to “share” with your roommates.

Will the BunkTrunk fit on bottom bunks as well as top bunks? What if I don’t have a bunk, just a bed?

The BunkTrunk’s feet fit under the mattress so it makes no difference if you are on the top, bottom or if you’re on a regular bed!  Or if you want, you can take the legs off and put the BunkTrunk under your bed.

Will the BunkTrunk take any of my foot space?

The BunkTrunk sits approximately 12 inches above the typical mattress.  So, there should be plenty of room for most feet. Extended length legs are available as an option.

How easy is it to install the BunkTrunk and what tools do I need? I don’t have a toolbox in my dorm.

To install the BunkTrunk all you need to do is insert the feet into the BunkTrunk and secure them with the leg pins included.  Then pull back your mattress, sitting the BunkTrunk on your bed frame. Set the mattress down on top of the BunkTrunk legs and you are done!

I can’t open my BunkTrunk!

Sometimes the batteries in your BunkTrunk lock can die without giving any advanced warning. For this reason we have provided you with a Mini USB cable, enabling you to power the lock using a power bank or other external USB power source. Once you power the lock via the USB cable, you can enter your code and open your BunkTrunk and replace the four AAA batteries.

My dorm is secure, why do I need a BunkTrunk?

Even if your room is not broken into, does your roommate lock the door every time they leave? Do you lock the door every time you head down to the shower? What about the impromptu gatherings or surprise visitors that just happen to walk into your room? Does your roommate borrow personal items without asking?

With the BunkTrunk, you don’t have to worry about the items you’ve locked in the BunkTrunk. While it is not a safe, it will keep most folks out and most will look for easier items to grab.

The cost of the BunkTrunk is less than most insurance deductibles. In addition, nobody wants to lose their laptop containing all their school work, including that critical term paper that took countless hours to write.  Secure your valuables and your hard work in the BunkTrunk.

What Shipping Methods Are Available?

UPS or FedEx.

If I order one today how quick can I get it?

Since the BunkTrunk measures 1 ft x 1 ft x 3 ft, it must be shipped via ground.  So, plan on about 3 to 5 days for delivery after your order is processed.

Can I change my security code so that it is something I can remember or does it come with a code already pre-programmed?

Yes! While the BunkTrunk comes wth a pre-programmed master and user code, instructions are included, so you can change the codes to whatever codes you want!

Can my BunkTrunk be installed under my bed?

If you have at least 12-1/2 inches of clearance, your BunkTrunk can be used under your bed. Simply remove the legs, or don’t install them in the first place. Optionally you can add some rubber feet (available from Amazon) to each bottom corner. Rubber feet will keep your Bunktrunk from moving when you open and close it, and it will give you space for the electrical cord to exit under the BunkTrunk.
