How to Locate headboard Strut attach point on your bed frame
Are you in the market for a new headboard that attaches using headboard struts? The good news is that headboard fixing points are standardised in the bed industry. This means you can purchase a bed frame from one supplier and a headboard from another without compatibility issues.
There are two primary methods for attaching a headboard: headboard struts and wall mounting. In this article, we will focus on headboard struts.
Before ordering a headboard, check if your bed frame has attachment points. These points will be in standardised locations. Some manufacturers provide fixing holes on both sides, while others have them on the front and back of the frame.
If your bed frame is upholstered, the manufacturer may not have pierced the material. You can either look for a sticker indicating the fixing points or run your hand over the material to feel for them.
In the UK, the most common headboard attachment uses M8 threaded bolts. However, older beds (20 years or more) may use 5/16th imperial bolts. We offer a wide range of headboard bolts to accommodate different needs.
Typically, headboard struts are located 6 inches in from both sides of the bed frame, as shown in the illustrations below.
