    I know this may sound daft, but is there a saftey strap that you need to undo first before dropping the bed down ?

    sometimes you have to lift the bed to drop it.
    some cars had a similar thing on the bonnets to stop the wind dropping them on your head.

    What about a sharp tap with a hammer, it might unstick whatever it is inside that is stuck?

    You could always try getting use to a different sleeping position. Problem solved !!!
