Even if you manage to install it successfully (I had to drill holes in my platform frame), the headboard wobbles front to back. The design has no inherent structural integrity or rigidity.
I was pleased with this product. Easy to mount on the Premier Simple Adjustable Platform Bed frame and the Sauder Orchard Hills Twin Bookcase. Lots of placement options, fit well and hold headboard firmly.
We had to drill some extra holes but we didn't have the exact frame this was for. doesn't have the best support, but suffices for now.
The headboard/footboard brackets work great! They secured my headboard and footboard perfectly into place, keeping it perfectly sturdy. I actually purchased another set for our spare bedroom and the brackets fit well with the headboard and footboard for that bed as well. Great universal bracket!
These brackets are to attach the best bed frame ever made (!!!) to your headboard and footboard; however, they would not fit my particular bed ... it might have been because my bed was manufactured in either the late 1960s or early 1970s. I just acquired this bed from my parents' house and the bed is good and solid and looks like new, but these brackets wouldn't fit in the slots on this bed. No big deal, I'm going to return them to my local WalMart store, but I wouldn't let these brackets stop you from buying the frame!!! Besides, if you have a bed that is fairly new, they might fit it!!!
Bought the matching bed frame which I have purchased before and am pleased with, but these headboard/footboard brackets are cheap and do not hold the footboard solidly in place. It's not like the footboard was heavy, it was very light but still couldn't hold it in place. I didn't even try the headboard since the footboard is much smaller and it couldn't even hold the footboard, so I know the headboard would flop around and probably bend the brackets. Needless to say, these are going back. I will keep the frame, it is solid. Too bad the brackets weren't constructed the same way.
Follow the directions and you shouldn't have any problems at all does the job it was intended for.
It works excellent on the footboard,but for some reason its loose on the headboard.i'm happy with it.
When looking at the picture I envisioned this setup to work perfectly on my headboard which mounts on the sides. I did not take into account the picture was actually taken from the back of the bed though. I was still able to mount the unit and make it work with a few tweaks. It is secured and imagine that it would work very well with headboard that mount to the back of the bed.
The only problem I had with this product was the instructions. The parts our not label left or right, so when installing them you have to make sure everything is turnt right and the instructions do not indicate that. You see the picture, but it can be alittle confusing when trying to put it together. The instructions are little to vague for my taste. Once put together it's very sturdy and looks great.
I was a little disappointed with this bracket system. It doesn't seem as sturdy as it could be, and it was difficult to attach to the footboard of my bed.
Like other reviews have mentioned, these brackets do not prevent front to back movement of a headboard. I have everything attached tightly and I can easily move the top of the headboard forwards and backwards a good 4 inches. I have had to pull the bed several inches from the wall so that I don't have to worry about my son pushing the top of the headboard into the wall. These brackets looks nice, but they just don't offer much stability or support.
This is not an universal bracket. Would not line up with the bed frame or head board.
The actual frame is nice but the brackets have proven to be flimsy. We have a wrought iron sleigh style headboard and footboard. While the headboard isn't extremely heavy it does have some weight to it. The brackets cannot handle it, the metal they are made with is to thin. So my choice is get rid of the new frame I just purchased or get rid of my head and foot boards. I don't like either choice. Very disappointed.
THE BRACKETS ARE NOT UNIVERSAL, THEY DO NOT WORK ON JUST ANY KIND OF BED.
It took a long time to assemble and it was difficult. The directions were all wrong! After assembled, my existing Headboard would shake and wobble. I ended up throwing the whole bracket in the Garbage Can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't Buy!
This does not work at all with my headboard. Couldn't tell from directions how to attach it. Took me a very long time. Pictures were not helpful. BB
I didn't actually install them as I had to return the foundation, BUT the instructions were clear and made sense. I f you followed the instructions step I am sure I would have been able to install with no problems. The only downside is that they looked like they are time consuming to put on. I would estimate about 1 hour.
very disappointed. no where in the product description did it say these universal brackets were for a platform bed. returned them
