Drill holes for added Happijack heights (upper bed)?

I'd like to keep the lower setting/level for the upper bunk and add a way to keep the upper bunk down about two feet from ceiling ( 10-12" below the upper pin stop setting ) .
Would it damage / hurt / be safe to just drill extra pin holes ?
I was informed and then read in the manual that its possible to to adjust the stop that is screwed inside the track, but that would just move the current lower setting which Id like to keep.

Measure 3 times and drill once.

And dont assume both rails are mounted to the walls at the same height. Double check.

I removed the stops on mine so upper bunk can be lowered for use, rather than sleep on benches. I am planning on drilling new pin holes instead of screwed in stops. Haven't quite figured out how to keep the drill square with the rail that close to the wall.

I did it on mine. I added a thicker mattress and wanted the bed lower so it would not cover the speakers in the ceiling. Easy as pie.

A longer drill bit will lower the angle. You can usually find 12in long drill bits in common sizes. Mark and drill both sides independently.

Or, if you know someone with a 90 degree angle drill that you could borrow for a few hours.....probably could find one at a tool rental place too.
