Bed bolt covers hide the holes where the bed bolts enter the bed posts, and do so in a beautiful way. Beds need tightening periodically, and the cover can be swung up and the bolt exposed for tightening.
Authentic reproductions, our Bed Bolt Covers are exact copies of early American originals dating back to just after the revolutionary war. The designs are uniquely American, and were common during the Federal period. Today, Horton Brasses is one of only two companies still hand making traditional bed hardware in the USA. Our reproductions are stamped from very intricate dies and punches hand-made by our founder, Frank Horton, in the 1920's and 30's.
The H-23, H-33, and H-120 bed bolt covers are made from heavier stock. All three are very early patterns and were originally cast. Each is available in antique brass, light antique dark antique (oil rubbed bronze), semi-bright brass, and polished brass. Custom nickel finishes are available for any bed bolt cover-please call us at 800-754-9127 to discuss.

My ca. 1820 Norfolk tester bed had a few of the original bolt covers. I was delighted to find that Horton Brasses had the same covers in its inventory. I have installed the the bolt covers, and frankly, it's very difficult to distinguish the originals from the Horton reproductions. Thank you so much! Jim Spraker
Love my Nickel Bedbolt Covers, March 19, 2019 By Jennifer P Willis (West Chester, OH)
I wanted to change out the brass bedbolt covers on my cherry pencil post bed because I am remodeling with a lighter, more Swedish look. The bed is out being painted white, and when it comes back I think the nickel acanthus leaf coverswhich are beautifulwill be a nice Gustavian touch and will match the new door hardware in the room.

Oh my, these are so beautiful, September 18, 2017 By Anonymous (CA)(Verified)
My husband was at the local lumber mill and found some scrap pieces of cedar that he made into a fireplace mantle. He had to use huge bolts to hold it in place. The holes from the bolts needed to be covered up somehow, and neither of us could figure out how. I went on google not having anyway to figure what to look for. I accidentally found these. They were listed as being used for brass beds. But, I knew they would be perfect for our new mantle. They are beyond perfect. They make the mantle look like it is a hundred years old. I am so pleased. They are gorgeous, I feel like I have stepped back in time every time I look at the mantle. Thank you for making these and so reasonably priced.
