Pictured is our Hook In Bracket which can either be connected to the headboard end of the frame or at both ends connecting to both the headboard and footboard. The connection(s) have two hooks that slide down into and a vertical slot of a headboard or headboard and footboard. The 2 hooks of the hook in bracket at the end of the metal sides rails then securely anchor to the bed together by resting over 2 steel pins mounted in the leg of a wood headboard or wood headboard and footboard.

Pictured is a close up example of our bolt-on frame bracket.
NOTE: No two bolt up brackets look alike however all bolt on rail brackets will have at least one oval shaped slot at the top and one at the bottom. The more slots or holes that are provided the more tolerance to fit a greater variety of headboards and headboards and footboards including wood, metal, iron, brass, etc. Whichever headboard is used bolts of proper length insert through the legs of the bed and bolt up mounting bracket plate of the frame and can be securely fastened with nuts, bolts, and lock washers.
