The screws that hold my upper bunk are not loose, but the magnets are a bit wobbly. I believe it was designed that way from the onset to compensate for some flex and some jarring on the road.
My lag screw was pulled completely out of the wood block that is in turn screwed to the ceiling. That wasn't cause by design and it sure wasn't caused by normal bobbing around and the occasional pot hole. The screw was ripped out of the wood because of the Interstate 90 in Montana is so bad that it completely failed. I'm surprised the head of the screw didn't snap off.
The bunk never came back down after we got off of that goat path I-90
I am going to make something that keeps it from ever falling again.
