Great replacement for move damaged bedrails
Easy installation and exact fit replacement. Sturdier than original hardware so much less likely to bend.

Woodworking Experience:
Bed rail brackets
Used only the pins supplied in the kit. Worked with a commercial queen size frame that I built for a regular size bedframe. Customer wanted a queen size bed to fit in a regular size footprint because of rugs.
The pins worked beautifully with a frame that they had.

Worked great
The instructions were good, I only made some bed rails, so I did not have to make the post kerf for headboard and footboard.

Just what I needed...
I bought a used bed frame at a consignment shop. After I got it home I discovered that one of the hooks was missing. I ordered these as soon as I could. The replacement hook and pins fit on my bed perfectly!

Looks like will work perfectly.
Now I just need time to get the project done. Needed to lengthen the distance between headboard and foot so an electric hospital bed could do it's thing. So glad I found you. And the catalogue has so many other interesting things. May get another project going.

Two bed rails to a very old twin bed were lost to a house fire last May. The twin bed was well built and I wanted to replicate the rails to match the other twin bed that survived the fire.
Lawrence B on Mar 3, 2018
My granddaughters bed rail broke and asked if I could fix it. Being adventurous I said sure. Well after many exhaustive hours of research and driving around to different hardware stores, including the " big box" store to no avail, I landed at your website. Low and behold, much to my surprise, there they were, exact size and everything. I couldn't believe my luck!! That's why I bought them. Let's just hope they fit...................................................................................

My son's crib manufacturer went out of business and the crib is a convertible crib so the rails were no longer available. So I built bed rails using these hooks. Worked out well.

I have a head/foot board set but no bed rails. Looking locally I found rails that didn't get the results I was looking for. And they were expensive, so I decided to build my own..

what is the width and depth of the slot to receive the hooks. Also what is the diameter of the pins and how far apart should they be?
Tom S on Dec 7, 2015
I'm trying to replace lost side rail hooks. Do they need to be the "exact shape" of the two at the other end of the rail?
J. L on May 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: i orderd a set and they werent the exact shape but they still worked out perfect
Why does the description suggest these hooks are to be used for replacement only and not for new construction?
DImarc67 on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I disagree that they can be used only for replacement and not new construction. I have used them both ways and in some applications they were used for shelf supports rather than bed rail support.
How do I remove the short pins in order to replace the old (rusty) claws/hooks on the bed rails?
A shopper on May 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Drill out the wood plugs holding the pins in place. then drill a smaller hole on the opposite side that fits a pin punch. (I use a 1/8" pin punch) and drive the pin out the entry side using the punch through the 1/8" hole.
Want extend bed rail about 3 inches but want to keep bed rail, can I use a hardwood block with bed hooks to extend the rail. Don't want to ruin headboard or bed rail,real old antique oak bed.
Charles D on Mar 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would make a 3" extension of same wood as rail, add new fasteners to it. I think I would place a spline under the bottom for strength. I would not glue the pieces together in case you ever wanted to go back to original. My only other question is about the width of the bed. If you are going to a larger mattress it will also be wider, which calls for a completely different approach.
Need to lower the bed. Would like to cut off bottom of headboard "legs" , use existing side rails and somehow install new pins in headbord and footboard. How to install pins?
A shopper on Aug 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sorry. I used a different set of brackets than those I originally purchased. The only tool I could find to cut he Kerk was a portable Skil saw. Rather than make a jig to accommodate the long bed rail, I chose different brackets. I also did not want to have to cut off the steel pins to accomodate my 3/4 stock
I have a bed post with 3 pins that are each spaced 2" apart. The middle pin has broken off leaving a small part of it imbedded in the hole. There is now only one pin for the double hook to hook onto which makes the bed wobbly. How do I replace the middle pin?
amy a on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: On the inside of the post mark the center of the pin. Drill a hole into the center of the broken pin and remove it (use a slightly larger bit). Replace broken pin, plug the hold drilled and apply finish to plug.
What is the material? I need stainless for a special project.
WilliamJ on Aug 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I purchased this to help out a friend. They are just steel plates, they are not stainless steel.
Why is it recommended that this hardware not be used on new construction?
Dominic F on Aug 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure why the instructions say that. I use them on new side rails and posts fairly often. If you follow the the dimensions given it works fine
My footboard where the wooden bed rail hooks should rest on are not holding the be up on the footboard, how can I repair it?
Alisa H on Jul 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The bed rail should not be hooking into the footboard. They should hook into the post.
I actually wanted to do something different and used commercial queen size rails on a full size frame with the Rockler pins and it worked beautifully. You just have to measure.
Can these be mounted to the side of the rail instead of mitered into them?
Samantha P on Sep 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is possible, but not advisable. I'm afraid the way they are attached to the rail would not hold up to weight and would have to be attached with bolts or screws which would/could work loose. Of course the hook part could be mortised into the side of the rail which would give more strength. Why do you need them attached to the side?
How many in a package?
growright on Nov 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Set comes complete with four hook plates and 16 pins for holding them in place.
One of the post on the footboard of my bead is weak and sway to the touch. What can be done to make the footboard post more secure?
Dorothy R on Jan 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: One solution is to add a thin shim between the rail and the post.
I am going to raise the headboard by 8" keeping the mattress at the same height, so do I need to build leg extensions and install the hardware 8" lower??
