Information on Widening Beds

Bed Lock Brackets are used to widen beds, they do not lengthen the rails.
This enables antique
  • 3/4 beds to be widened to full size beds
  • full size beds to be widened to queen size beds

  • Widen beds: Three Quarter and Full Size, which use steel bed rail hook fasteners, with a bedlock bracket.
  • Once mounted, bracket extends beyond bed posts allowing rails to be set further apart.
  • Typically the slit in bed posts must be widened to accommodate one side of the bed bracket.
  • A wood block extension is added to the outside of the bedpost. Bed bracket is then bolted to the bedpost and wood block extension (see picture).
