    Bed Frame Hooks

    Excellent product - and great service

    Great product!

    We recently acquired an antique maple clipper ship bed that had belonged to my Dad in his youth. One of the siderail brackets was missing and a poor repair had been made to make it usable. I found the double-hook siderail brackets at Paxton and was able to make a more suitable repair. The bed is now available for visiting grandsons--4th generation of use!
