Your new TOCHTA mattress is compressed and rolled, then packaged in a box, before being shipped directly to you. Take the box to the location you wish open your mattress. Remove the compressed mattress from the box, and carefully cut open the outer plastic wrapping of your mattress (A basic letter opener works great for this step). After the outer plastic has been removed, carefully cut or tear away the plastic covering on your mattress. It will immediately begin to expand. Once you’ve removed the plastic, set and position your mattress in its place and allow it to fully expand. It will be fully expanded and ready to use within minutes!
