  • 7" Bed Bolts are for wood and rope beds where tendon end of bed rail slips into mortise cut into bed post. Bed Bolt is then added to create a strong rigid joint between wooden bed-posts and bed-rails by drawing them tightly together. 

    Rope beds were used in the 1700's - 1800's. Bed rails had short wooden pegs the entire length of rail. A rope was wound in and out around pegs. This created a rope mesh to support their feather "tick", the forerunner of the mattress. 

    Bed Boltssecure rope beds. Tighten bolts with a bed bolt wrench.   Spring supports are attached to inside of rails to support modern spring and mattresses.  Once installed: decorative brass bed bolt covers conceal head of bed bolt.

  • Historically thread-size of old/antique nuts varied. Our bolts screw into a 3/8"- 16 nut, 3/8 refers to bolt diameter, 16 refers to the number of threads per inch. If your bed has existing nuts It will be necessary to determine nut thread size. Nuts must be replaced if size is different than 3/8"- 16.
