Comfortable but had to do some adjustments first

I ordered 3 of these cots for tent camping. Luckily I decided to set them up before our trip, because two of the cots needed adjustment. There are 3 metal tubes that fit together and go into the cot sides, and they have holes that are supposed to align in order to hold the metal poles that are on the underside of the cot. The holes on the cot sides did not match up, so it was impossible to put the metal poles into the hole (it was too small). I tried every configuration, but couldn't get them to match so they must've been drilled incorrectly. Luckily, we were able to make the holes a bit wider with a drill, and then everything fit together. Also, the first night on this cot was a bit uncomfortable but then it became more comfortable. So give it a few trys before you give up. I gave this a 4-star: it would've been 5, but Alps missed a QA check on those side poles. I paid $30 for each cot, because I bought them during an "extra % off" sale. This was a great price, as most cots in-store are much more expensive.
