Perhaps you’re shopping for a new metal bed frame for a queen size headboard footboard. In your search you located 2 of the most unique steel frame designs sold the 62 CS and the 63 CS WB. Both are made by Glideaway, both hook into a wood headboard and footboard, but there are some major differences between these 2 steel queen size bed frames.
Each bed frame has the ability to replace wooden side rails that traditionally hook in at the head and foot of the side rails. At both ends of the rails is the queen size headboard and footboard which should have a vertical slot where the rails are able to hook into place. They engage by hooking in and over 2 horizontal metal pins built into the legs of the wood bed headboard and footboard. If too much weight is applied to these connections it can cause the legs of the bed to split out ruining a headboard or footboard.
In the old days our parents and grandparents beds had wooden sides that supported wooden slats that rested on a lip about ¾ of an inch and screwed into place. The wooden slats they used rarely if ever had feet in the middle of them which offers additional needed support. Because of the lack of middle support nearly all of the weight is concentrated on to the wooden side rails ultimately resulting in failure. Glideaway frame manufacturing came up with a unique solution to this problem. They built the 62CS, a frame that could get the job done for average size people under normal usage conditions , plus size people, perhaps they just wanted a stronger frame, or the greatest need of them all heavier beds uch as soft side waterbed.
