Wooden bedframe squeaks

Posted by Martin Melvin, on
I have a wooden bedframe, where the 2 side-pieces fit to the headboard via metal brackets with lugs which fit into corresponding slots in metal fixtures on the headboard. This often results in squeaking noises from those 2 junctions. Any ideas how to fix? - perhaps some more robust joining mechanism?

Hi Martin, If the bed is solid wood then it may be possible to countersink some large screws to add extra strength to the joint and reduce the squeaking. Alternatively, there are small brackets available from DIY stores that can be screwed in to again add strength. The squeaking is most likely being caused by tiny movements between the joint. Anything you can do to add strength at the join will reduce/prevent the squeak. Kind regards Tom
