HALF SIDE RAIL INFORMATION

This is the half side rail with the mounting bracket beside it. The bracket mounts to the bed base and the side rail slides down into the bracket. There are three detents on the side rail so it can be set at three different heights or the rail can be completely removed without removing the mounting bracket.

Mounting bracket.
This is a closeup of the mounting bracket. There are 8 holes for attaching it to the base. I would recommend using at least 2 tee-nuts or two nuts and bolts. You can use lag screws for the other holes.

The white button on the side is the handle for pulling the detent rod in and out of the bracket. There are three holes on the stem of the side rail so that it can be placed in a choice of different positions - low, medium and high. It can also be completely removed from the bracket.

There are two styles of adjustable beds:

1. The traditional adjustable bed had a wood platform with 4 or 5 inches of foam on top of it, coverd by fabric. The side rails would mount on the bottom of that wood platform.

2. The newest style of adjustable bed, used by most of the companies nowdays, has a wood platform with just an inch or so of material on top to cover bolt heads. There is usually a foam rail attached to the bottom of the wood platform and the base is then coverd by fabric so that it looks like a box spring. The side rails mount to the top of this type of base.

This is a picture of the half side rail mounted on newer type base. It mounts on the top of the base. You must use smooth headed bolts when you mount it on this type of bed.

This is the easiest type of base to mount a half side rail to. The inside mounting bolts can be reached without loosening up any of the fabric and you can use lag screws in the outer bolt holes of the mounting bracket.

This is a picture of the half side rail mounted on a traditional base. It mounts to the bottom of the wood platform. While you can mount it with just lag screws, I would recommend that you pop the material loose along the top third of the base and install at least two tee-nuts in the top of the base. You then staple the material back and install the side rail.








For those of you who do not know, this is what a tee-nut looks like.
