I was fine with putting together the frame but got really frustrated when it came to putting the brackets on. The brackets were needed b/c I had a metal headboard / footboard to attach. If I was stronger or if a guy put this together, I do not believe it would have been a problem. The shortest screws were fine but the long screws were WAY too long and one part of my bed, the footboard on the right side did not get screwed tight because I kept pinching myself with the pliers.
The good news is, the nuts are self tightening so even though I didn't tighten the right side all the way, my bed is still solid and the screws won't fall out, ever. There is about an inch to an inch and a half on each one that ideally should be tight.
I recommend if you are not a strong female, to have a male help you with this, or a strong female - for tightening the screws and self tightening nuts! If it wasn't for the nuts, this would not have been difficult, but the nuts are what gives it the strength and durability and peace of mind that everything is solid and won't fall apart.
