I bought a nice antique headboard and foot-board, ca. 1840, but there were no rails. The pieces I bought had notches cut in them with brass plates of a certain shape. Although I couldn't get brass fasteners anywhere, the ones I got at Paxton Hardware are exactly the right size, inexpensive compared to other outlets, and delivery was prompt. The steel pieces are not visible, anyway, so it isn't important that they are not brass.

I recently obtained two sets of head and foot boards (in incredible condition) from a family member that date back to the mid to late 1800's. The side boards fell apart after a termite infestation, and my wife and I wanted to make new ones to use the beds for our two children. After searching tirelessly online for hardware that matched the original, I came across these.. Let me tell you, they worked PERFECTLY! The beds are now used by our children and are so strong! They don't make hardware for beds like this anymore, or so I thought. Paxton Hardware does, and it saved us hundreds of dollars we otherwise would've spent having them done by an antique restoration company or buying beds like these somewhere new. I couldn't be happier with the results, they're strong, durable and well made. I recommend anyone who wants to restore antique beds to their original condition to use this product, you won't be disappointed!!!

A great product. Strong cast iron wouldn't think of using anything else for any bed, especially heavy duty bed construction. Would recommend going with the bigger size because of the ribbed shoulder. the smaller ones have pins which require more details for students to install.

The fasteners I purchased were to replace similar fasteners on a bed more than 60 years old. The new fasteners were exactly what I needed. They were as advertised, and arrived promptly. My purchase was a satisfying experience.

Great Service

Fit perfectly. Lost parts to a bed built in the 1930s. Now my grandson is sleeping in a bed made by his great great great grandfather.

Our bed frame broke while I was preparing our room for new paint. It was a holiday weekend, & I had new mattresses being delivered on the Monday holiday. After searching locally and on-line for a few hours, I was hesitant to order, since I needed the cast iron bed rail fastener before the new mattresses arrived. But, how to get them here in time was a challenge, since it happened on a Friday morning. I called and spoke to a lovely, very helpful, lady. She said they could ship overnight with UPS but that it would be pricey, since it was Saturday delivery. I asked for USPS express mail overnight (I am familiar with priority mail express since I work at a post office) and she made it happen! My package arrived the very next morning, and they were a perfect... even better quality than the original fastener that was used when our Amish bed was built about 27 years ago! Thank you so very much for the help and kindness and prompt service!!!

After designing a Shaker bed I researched and found the antique hardware from Paxton hardware. The spec sheet was helpful and straight forward. The mortises have an 11 degree side angle which proved more difficult to cut but even with a straight cut, the hardware holds very tight. The rail fasteners locked very well into place and the overall result looks great. I had to pay very careful attention to the two guides on the back of the fastener as they too are tapered and not evenly set apart from the screw holes. Be careful not to drill too large a hole for the guides or they will be visible when mounted. It would have helped to include a template, though I made mine, it took longer than expected because the guides are hidden when trying to insert the fastener. The product is excellent and the mailing time very good., only 3 days from ordering. Definitely a good buy.
