I recently purchased a Pragma bed frame but did not purchase the headboard/footboard (HB/FB) brackets as the salesman said I could pick up something similar at the home improvement store at a much cheaper price...not true. After a lot of online shopping for Pragma brackets, I found that no one could beat Overstock's price which was nearly HALF that of any other merchant. I read several reviews that people experienced problems attaching the HB/FB using the bolts provided but I had saved my original bolts and in a matter of minutes the HB/FB were SECURELY attached to the frame...super simple. As always, FAST delivery too. I was a bit hesitant to purchase as the photo makes it appear that the brackets must be screwed on to the side of the frame (my Pragma frame requires holes be on the top of the brackets). I am happy to report that the brackets I received look a little bit different from the photo with bolts holes on both the top and sides of the brackets. The slots also aligned perfectly with my HB/FB too. Very satisfied with my purchase!
These brackets do the job fine. Problem is not one bolt that came with them was the right size. My husband is not a novice he actually is a master electrician and a home builder/ remodeler, he made two trips to the hardware store ( lucky for us is 2 blocks away) to get replacement nuts and bolts. My advise is to ck your nuts and bolts to be sure they are correct before you start the project, otherwise they are sturdy and do a great job.
The brackets did allow us to attach the Pragma bedframe to our headboard, but instructions would have really helped. We had to try it twice before we figured out how and when to screw the bolts to the headboard correctly. The final result is terrific.
Brackets did not come in original box and had no directions, but it appeared so simple that you needed none, but I couldn't get the nuts to screw on the screws all the way. WELL the problem wasn't not having directions...it would have been nice to have the screws that goes to the brackets. My neighbor said they just threw some screws in the box and he brought me the right ones. So be prepared to get no directions and wrong screws! BUT if you go buy your own screws the brackets are great, study and secure for your headboard!
If you have old furniture, and need a bed frame to attach to a head board theses brackets works great. So easy to assemble. Took about ten minutes to do both sides. I would purchase these brackets again.
