    Measure Bracket to Widen Beds

    Bed Rail Bracket to Widen Beds enable beds which use a double hook bed rail fasteners to accommodate a wider mattress. They do-not work with other types of bed fasteners. Brackets enabled, width of the bed, to be widened up to 3" on each side. They are sold as a set to widen one bed.

    Bed Rail brackets widen bed but do-not lengthen side rails. If side rails are not long enough they will need to be replaced or lengthened (by a cabinetmaker).

    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.

    Bedrail bracket

    I ordered this as a replacement bracket for my older head board and foot board. From the different applications through the years I had removed the old ones and lost them. Excellent fit and function. Very happy with this purchase!!
