Install Bed Rail Bracket

  • Determine additional width needed to accommodate mattress. Divide this extra width measurement by 2, as you will add half to each side of bed.
  • Determine amount added, to outside of each side of headboard and footboard, by adding the above calculated half measurement.
  • At mounting location: cut slit into left and right side of headboard and footboard.
  • Slit should be cut a generous 3/8" wide by 1-1/8" deep.
  • If slit already exists it may need to be widened.
  • If the slit has pins in it, the pins will need to be removed.
  • One end of bracket inserts into slit. Other end of bracket overhangs side of bed.
  • Place block of wood between bracket and bed to stabilize (see diagram). Screw brackets into place.

To remove old pins used for bed hooks

  • Drill small hole opposite pin in bed post.
  • Then use a small punch tool to drive pin out original entry hole.
