About Bed Rail Hooks
You love the look of a wooden bed frame, complete with a headboard, footboard, and four posts, but you certainly do not want to be awakened by wood joists that have given way and dropped you to the ground. This is why the bedposts are held together with metal bed rail hooks. These hooks, which are typically two-inch plates, are hidden from view within slots in the bedposts and held securely in place using bolts. They make it possible to create strong joints for the bed frame, allowing the bed to support significant amounts of weight. Bed rail hooks are not only used for wooden bed frames — they are also attached to the brackets and rails of metal bed frames, serving the same purpose. When shopping within the large inventory on eBay, you can purchase a single bed rail hook to replace a missing piece on your frame, or purchase an entire set of four bed frame hooks. Having strong, metal, stainless steel plates supporting your bed can help you sleep soundly and securely through the night.
