I attached one long side of the net under the mattress using screws and fender washers. I wove the chain through the other long side of the net and used "s" hooks to anchor the net to the chain. I then attached the chain to heavy duty screw hooks on each end of the bunk bed area. The chain simply slips on the hooks when in use. When getting in or out of the bunk or for storage, unhook the chain and slide the net and chain under the mattress. It worked really well.

I would worry about injuries and choking hazards with these.

That's why I suggested the 1x4. Might even use 2. They would sure be easy to store under the mattress.

Check out the net on the Coachmen Pursuit motorhomes. It goes around both the side and the front of the bunk. It then has a panel that clips up across the front. Looks just like a pack and play when up. The Pursuit also came with a ladder for the bunk, just stored outside in the right front compartment.
