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.

Good quality but expensive
Great product! Unusual Use!, April 20, 2016 By Doug (Natick, MA)
I used the bed bolts for a cherry and Granite kitchen table I just completed, (using Horton Brasses 6" bed bolts and satin nickel bed bolt covers, for the corner joints). A little unusual to use bed bolts for a kitchen table, but it needed to be very strong to support the weight of the 250 pound granite top, and the bed bolts, along with stub tenons on the table apron and mortised legs, did the trick! The satin nickel finish on the bed bolt covers complement the same finish detail on our kitchen cabinet hinges and handles, helping to tie the room together. Terrific service as always from Horton Brasses!

These bed bolts are the best authentic bolts for both beds and Shaker trestle tables. Thanks for another great product!

Bought these to replace bolts for an antique bed frame lost in a move. I could have gotten carriage bolts and square nuts at a hardware store or home center, but wanted to maintain the authenticity of the bed, since it is a valuable antique. These bolts were a perfect copy of the lost bolts and I was grateful to find them on your website. Ordering was easy and shipping was very quickI had them in hand in about 4 days.

Received my second set of bed bolts in less than a week...all the way to Australia!
Built a bed of grey ironbark (heavier than water) a year or two ago using (4) of the same bed bolts. The bed is still ROCK SOLID.

These bed bolts are the best bed hardware on the market. I have not found a way of assembling a bed that is as strong or as durable as using these.

We used these bolts on an old rope bed and they worked fine. We would not hesitate to order from this company again.
