Measure 4-1/2” long X 1-1/8” wide. The receiver (female) end is made to mortise recess ½” into the head and foot boards. Use either a router jig or drill using a 1-1/8” Forstner bit at each end and then a wood chisel to remove the material in between.
The cleat side (male) end is designed to surface mount on the inside of the rails. Two pegs on the cleat side will need to be drilled into the rail to keep it aligned and to add additional strength in addition to the two screws.
The Cleat side mates into the receiver and then pushes down to lock into place. From the outside, the rail will snug up to the head and footboard and look like a well-made wood joint.
Aluminum cast with countersunk screw holes. Free replacement if they break under normal use.
These fasteners can also be used for many other applications, such as hanging heavy-duty racks and shelving onto walls. The receiver end is just the right thickness to recess into ½” sheetrock and stud mount. The cleat sides can be mounted inside the shelf and rack units.
These fasteners can also be used on panels and box units used in traveling displays to quickly assemble and reassemble.
Sold in sets of four for a head and footboard, two right and two left (screws are not included)

Please Note: At CCW safety is always a top concern! If these are to be used on a bunk bed, then they will likely be subjected to rowdy boys and girls who like to tease their upstairs partner by pushing up against the bottom of the top bunk with their feet. In doing so they could push the rail out of the locked Position and have the top bunk tumble down on top of them. As a safety precaution, we always recommend a safety chain, an "L" bracket, or pocket hole screw on the inside corners of the top bunk rails to prevent them from being pushed up in this manner.
