  • There are 4 pre-drilled holes, 2 in each side of the frame, top and bottom. You can drill into the sides of an iron bed frame and then bolt the two together.
  • Or, you can use cable ties which we can supply for free. They work well and are quick and easy to use.

Fitting the bed base to wooden beds

Normally the base sits within the wooden frame on cross bars similar to those in the photo below.
