Product Details

How Converter Rails Work:

  • Converter rails accommodate the WIDTH OF QUEEN BEDDING: The rails use 4 durable "L" brackets to accommodate the extra width of a queen size mattress! Click for picture.
    L-brackets are bolted onto the bed side-rails, which allow for the extra width of queen size bedding.
  • Converter rails are the LENGTH OF QUEEN BEDDING: The usable space on our converter rails measures 82" - 83" long to accommodate the length of queen size bedding.
  • Converter rails come with an adjustable height center support leg.
    Adjustable height center support leg adjusts up to 11" tall to provide the necessary support for your queen size bedding.
    that provides the proper support for a queen size mattress. Leg adjusts up to 11" tall. If your bed is taller than 11", please order a leg extender kit: PLX-18.

Will converter rails work for me?

Our converter rails fit most beds- even antique ones. The following steps will help you determine if converter rails will work on your bed. Start by taking a look at your full size headboard and footboard. . .

  • STEP 1: Converter rails only work on FULL size beds. Before ordering this item, check your head and footboard. Many beds are designed for both full and queen sizes. If your bed is designed for both sizes, you will find two slotted areas on each side of your headboard and two slotted areas on each side of your footboard. The full size slots will be about 53 - 54 inches apart and the queen size slots will be about 58 - 60 inches apart. If you have slots for queen size, do not order this item. Instead, order queen size bed rails.
  • STEP 2: Take a look at your current bed side rails. Do they appear to hook-on

    or bolt-on ?
    The above picture is an example of a typical bolt-on bed rail bracket. Not all bolt-on bed rails will look exactly like this, but all bolt-on bed rails will have some arrangement of holes in which to secure bolts.

    Click for a printable hook template that you can cut out to see if the hooks will work on your bed. These are the ONLY two types of converter rails that are produced. If your current rails attach using a different system, you will need to have a local machine shop or welder customize a solution for you.
  • STEP 3: MEASURE THE HEIGHT of your current bed rails:

    If this distance is greater than 11", you'll need to order the leg extender kit: PLX-18. This extender kit (optional) makes the center support leg longer so that it will reach the floor.

    Height can be an issue in another sense, as well. Converter rails work differently than most bed rails. Using a converter rail, the actual rail where your box spring rests will be approximately 1 inch below your top hook. If your bed is already quite high, you might consider ordering our lower profile converter rails.
  • STEP 4:Do you need additional center support? Not usually. But if you have a dual queen box spring (2 box springs) you will need additional center support. Please order our ELM-211 Center Supports if you need additional supports.
  • Please note: There are hooks on each end of both hook-on bed rails or bolt plates on each end of the bolt-on bed rails. This allows you to attach to both a headboard and a footboard. You must have both a full size headboard and a full size footboard to use a converter rail set.

Comments: I came, I saw, I ordered and they delivered. How simple was that! Plus, I compared the prices and they were cheaper or around the same as some of their bigger name competitors. Overall, I would certainly recommend them for quality solutions and we will be back to have them solve more of our sleeping challenges. Barry - Fredericksburg Va

Comments: Absolutely thrilled with this purchase!!! The bed rails arrived lightening quick - I mean in like two days! And I didn't even request that. And shipping was free!! I finally have my beautiful antique full size head and footboard attached to a bed frame! It was simple to assemble and nice and sturdy. This beautiful bed is now all ready for holiday guests, so why did I wait so long to order the rails???

Comments: We ordered the converter-rails for a full to queen antique bed. The rails arrived within a week, and installed in less than 5 minutes, a perfect fit. Our only concern is that todays mattress/box spring sets are extremely thick and make the bed very tall. Our mattress store took back the box spring and gave us a low profile one in its place. Next time would order the low profile rails and also get the low profile box spring.
