   Ethan Allen Bed Frame Bolts, March 27, 2024  By Anonymous (Broken Arrow, OK)
Great product, fit my exact need for an 1990's Early American Ethan Allen bedframe. Needed to modify the bed frame slightly to accommodate the length of the bolt but works perfectly.

   Quality product and service, May 31, 2021  By Anonymous (Bend, OR)
I was lead to this product by Any Rawls on YouTube. I agree with Andy that these are quality bolts. My use is a bit different than his, they will work perfectly for my project.
I ordered online shipping was amazingly fast considering they came clear across the country.
   Excellent service, December 1, 2020  By Rebecca Glover (Abingdon, VA)(Verified)
I had to get my twin beds put together for my grandsons' visit. Almost too late I realized I had lost 2 of the bed bolts. Thanks to being able to message on Horton's web site, I was able to get the help I so desperately needed. Thanks to Horton, I got the beds set up and we all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I can't say enough about you! Thank you again, Rebecca

My next project will be new and replacing missing hardware on my oak dresser!!!

I bought the H-73 Bed Bolts for a king 4 poster bed I made for a client. They worked perfectly. The Horton price was the best I could find. Thank you!

   Steel Bed Bolt, October 30, 2019  By Anonymous (Springfield, VA)(Verified)
The bed bolts were perfect and we were able to put the bed together after misplacing the bolts for over 20 years.
   Top quality, August 20, 2019  By Anonymous (Kingston, NC)
Bought these bed bolts to restore an 1850s antique cannonball bed and they worked great. ! Matched the original perfectly. Great to be able to source orgianal hardware to restore it back to its original state .
Highly recommend !
Fast shipping to Canada as well ??

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!
   Steel bed bolts, December 2, 2015  By Paul (Grand Rapids, MN)
These bed bolts are the best authentic bolts for both beds and Shaker trestle tables. Thanks for another great product!
   Perfect Match, November 27, 2015  By Jim Allen (Middletown, OH)
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.

Great product. Arrived quickly and packaged well.
   Great product unbelievable delivery, July 15, 2015  By Richard (Morayfield, QLD,AUST)

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.


   The best there is., June 30, 2015  By Anonymous (Ferintosh)
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.
