Used them to secure a center bed rail for a Cal King size bed I made. Used them on both sides and ends of the rail.

Works good
Item worked perfectly as described. Did not come with any screws but the hardware itself was well designed. Held the rails to the headboard and footboard snugly and securely.

Bed frame easy to disassemble with these.
Easy install. I was skeptical that they would be sturdy enough for a bed but sure enough, works great.
Not great pics, sorry. Easy  install even for an amateur. It’s a 1X6 side rail and a 4X4 bed post.

Just what I needed
I needed brackets that didn't require routing to mount but were strong and stable. These fit all of my requirements.

I belong to Rogers Rotary club and we use these on beds we build for kids who don't have a bed. They work very well and are easy to use.

Needed something that looks like it will hold up and not break like the brackets we just bought.
Kelly S on Aug 18, 2018
The carpenter we are working with suggested these because it looked easier to mount. Also based on the pictures submitted it would work well with the design of the bed.

I started a hobby making furniture and I have started with headboard and footboards. I am starting with making my granddaughter a bed and for my wife a farm house bed. I do plan to make dressers and bed side draws also. I have been looking all through the internet and found your sight and I liked your products so I plan to odor more later on

Vic Q on Jan 15, 2017
This is the best engineered hardware solution to one of the end bedrail hooks that is to loose for support. This will shore up each corner tightly and avoid any looseness that might cause unnecessary wear.

Will this fit a 2x4 rail?
Jennifer E on Dec 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They will fit a true 4" board side.
How many pounds the rail brackets hold?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know the exact amount the brackets will hold. I used the brackets on two queen size beds for my daughters after they graduated college. One has lasted four years without a problem. The other bed is only six months old but so far so good. The brackets make the bed easy to break down and move and I highly recommend them. I would never use them on a bunk bed just out of caution. Good Luck.
In the bedrail instruction pdf, is the picture (figure 2) upside down? On the bracket attached to the post, the tab is down, but on the other pictures it is up.
Jennifer S on Jul 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Jennifer, you are correct. Figure 2 is upside down. If we assume that Figure 2 is oriented correctly, it is easy to see that the side rail bracket would not be retained and would immediately disengage from the headboard bracket. The tab on the headboard should be oriented up to engage the sideboard bracket hook. The sideboard tab should be pointed down to slip into the headboard bracket hook.
Are these safe for bunkbeds?
Wilson G on May 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: IF I were to use these on an upper bunk rail, I would add a screw in the post that prevents the bracket from disengaging if the rail were to be struck from below. Kids play around and I could see this happening if the kid on the bottom kicked upward and hit the rail.
Your Surface Mount Bed Rail Brackets listing (Item #: 38892) says they're made out of zinc. Are you sure they are not zinc plated steel? Zinc is not very strong and everyone attests to these being quite strong. (You should be able to test it with a magnet.)
Jeff Condit J on Sep 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Just used these to put together a twin set for my daugter. Worked great and have held strong. I’m not worried about the strength of the metal. What has me more nervous is the size of the screw I used for the bed rail. It’s a 1X6 aka 3/4X5-1/2. The screws for that are 1/2 inch but it’s held great so far.
What size screws are needec?
