Bed bolts hold the posts and rails of pencil post and other poster beds together. A billet of 3/8" diameter steel is hot forged to create a 3/8" square head with a built in 15/16" flange. Each is supplied with a 3/4" square nut. Our bolts and nuts all have 16 threads per inch (T.P.I.). Most beds use 8 bolts, some use only 4. See bed bolt installation instructions.
Bed irons mount on the inside of the rail of a wood bed and support the box spring. Six standard sizes satisfy most needs, but custom configurations are available. Please contact us with your requirements. Please be sure to look at bed iron installation diagrams before deciding on the length you need. Note that custom bed irons (special configurations, lengths or holes) are not returnable for credit, exchange or refund.
Bed irons are made from 1/4" thick by 1-1/4" wide steel. Bottom support is 3" long, available in six lengths. First screw hole is 3/4" down from top and second one is 2-1/4" down from top (1-1/2" apart). #12 x 1" long steel screws are included.
Please note: Custom bed irons (special configurations, lengths or holes) are not returnable for credit, exchange or refund.
