Bed Rail Fasteners provide strong rigid joints between wooden side rails and wooden bed frames. Fasteners are made of sturdy cast iron. The heavy-duty construction ensures long lasting strength and durability. Use bed-rail connectors on vintage and antique beds.
When installing always test fit the four pairs of parts before starting. Mortise oval post pieces into headboard and footboard posts of wooden beds. Rail pieces are surfaced mounted to the wooden side rails.
Received an antique bed that had this type of connectors to the bed rails. One was missing on one rail. I searched the internet and found Paxton Hardware with several items that might work. After measuring openings, lengths, width (which was easy because of good specs placed on the website) I found the item I purchased. Sorry I had to buy a whole set but to get the bed in working order I did not mind. When I received the package, I needed to do a bit of grinding to size the fastener portions to the correct size to fit the holes in the bed boards. Once fastened and tried, it worked like a charm. Holds the rail nicely in the old female portion and is in use today. Antiques used different hardware from today and finding a suitable replacement piece is not easy. Though some minor alterations needed to be made with a grinder, it made the job a lot easier and a beautiful piece of furniture is now reusable. Thank you.
Excellent bed frame parts.
I needed to replace a bed rail fastener on a 50 year old bed. I searched several times and never found anything close until I found this exact match at Paxton Hardware. Thank you.
These were exactly as were described and the communication with the company was great
The bed rail fasteners came very fast and were perfect for my grandfather's bed. The measurement page helped me order the correct size. Great purchase!
