Installing Universal Bedlegs

Bedleg and Bracket Installation Instructions

The Universal Bedleg® System easily attaches to the box spring utilizing two components: the threaded base plate and the bed leg. The threaded base plate installs directly onto the box spring and the leg simply screws into the threaded area of the base plate completing the installation. Once the base plate is secured to the box spring using a power screwdriver, you can easily resize the height of the beds without any tools by simply attaching a different size leg.

  • IMPORTANT: Verify that your side rails meet the minimum requirements of a width of no less than 1"x3" (actual size 3/4" x 2 1/4").

  • Before drilling, pick the set of screw holes you will use by measuring the width of your boxspring rail. If your rails are 1" x 4" (actual width of 3/4" x 3 1/4"), use the outside holes [C]. The side with the single set of holes [A] always faces the outside edge of the bedframe.
    If your rails are less than an actual width of 3/4" x 3 1/4", use the inside set of screw holes [B].
    Always use the outside screw holes [A].
