Bracket to Widen Beds enable beds which use a double hook bed rail fastener to accommodate a wider mattress. Brackets attach to bed widening the width of the bed up to 3" on each side. These brackets do not lengthen side rails. If side rails are not long enough they will need to be replaced or lengthened (by a cabinetmaker). When installing:
Find best placement for bracket by determining additional width needed to accommodate mattress.
Cut slit into left and right side of head-board and foot-board, at mounting location.
One end of bracket inserts into slit.
Other end of bracket overhangs side of bed. Place block of wood between bracket and bed to stabilize (see diagram).
Screw brackets into place.
