Under bed storage 2003 Brave

Has anyone figured out a safe way to store items under the bed? Every time I try to access something, the bed is so heavy I'm unable to retrieve it. The bed is clearly too heavy for the pistons. I've jacked it up before and once it slipped and almost decapitated me! Suggestions?

change out the pistons to those which can handle the weight.

our bed doesn't really have storage under the bed but there is the mattress pump and bed motors there that may require access. the bed platform is v-e-r-y heavy so i had my shop add two extra-duty pistons and because i also did not want to die we added a fold up/down safety bar.

On ours the pistons barely holds it up and depending on whaty dw has piled on top it doesnt hold so i cut a 1" pvc pipe to length and use it as a prop rod when getting/storing items under the bed.
