Bed Rail Fasteners are sturdy cast iron. This material and construction ensures long lasting strength and durability.
Before starting: Test fit male and female connection pieces together. If necessary small adjustments can be made with minor filing.
When installing: mortise oval post pieces into headboard and footboard posts of wood beds. Rail connector are surfaced mounted to the wooden side rails.
We had broken one of these fasteners on our 40 year old, walnut bed. [By torquing the side rail while moving the bed]. We searched the web and found Paxton. The pictures of these fasteners matched and the new piece from Paxton was a perfect match when it arrived. A quick fix and we are back to a "like new" bed. Thank you. BTW, packing and shipping were also solid and quick.
I didn’t know you existed until I needed you and I’m glad that it happened.
Not only were the products as advertised, the advice and instruction were outstanding.
