Best Hardware Brackets in 2020



Rok Hardware 14 Gauge Table Top Fasteners with Screws, Steel, 20 Pack ROKSTBFAST Review:


The table top fasteners from Rok Hardware are the best way to attach a table top. Simply cut a saw cut on the inside of the table skirt between 3/8” and 1/2” from the top side and about 3/8” deep. Place the fasteners about every 12” around the top or at least one per side. The fasteners allow for seasonal movement of the wood. The Rok Fasteners are not painted but have a slight oil coating probably from the manufacturing process and will rust if used on outside furniture. I use the fasteners as is but a coat of spray paint would stop the rust if that is a problem.



Ives by Schlage 59A3 Schlage Sp Handrail Bracket, 2-13/16 in L X 1-1/2 in W, Aluminum, Bright, Brass Review:


I purchased these along with (my original style) Stanley Hardware V8025 3" Heavy Duty Handrail Bracket in Polished Brass handrail support brackets.

I thought I'd get these since they appeared nicer and were actually less cost with my additional order(s). Anyway, these are much better than my original support brackets. These are strong solid brass and have a nicer polished brass finish. I am very happy with these quality brackets.

I will keep the Stanley Hardware V8025 Handrail Brackets if I should need them but, I don't think I will need them for 20 years since I really believe these Ives by Schlage 59A3 Hand Rail Brackets will last at least that long.



SUNVORE Bed Rail Bracket - Bed Rail Fittings - Heavy Duty Non-Mortise - Set of 4 (Screws Included) Review:


I purchased this product to go along with a new bedroom set I am building for my daughter. She wanted a Scandinavian Modern bedroom set with clean lines. (Think IKEA)

The bed is made out of poplar with 1x8 rails mounting into 3x3 posts. I did not like the size or look of the supplied screws so I upgraded them with better 3/4 inch wood screws on the rails and 1 1/2 inch wood screws on the posts.

The only thing I missed in the process was making sure I had enough clearance on the bed real. I cut the mattress / box spring support to long to allow for the two pieces of the bracket to connect. Cut the support 2 inches short on each end and everything will line up perfect.



5 in Surface Mounted Bed Rail Brackets Review:


I bought these to repair my sons bed... He has a crib which converted to a bed and the design isn't the best. The rails split while making the bed one day. I was searching for a better solution than had come with the bed and settled on these due to the height of the bracket and the spread of the screws - I feel this gives the bracket more strength especially considering the broken rails. It also helps that these were a bit cheaper than the same brackets from Rockler.
A bit of glue, some clamps, and these brackets were just what I needed.

With brackets like these, alignment is crucial - I used a scribe to mark the placement of the brackets on all pieces, attached them, and assembled it. The bed is now rock-solid and better than new!



LuckIn Corner Braces 2 x 2 inch, Corner Braces Stainless Steel 304 with Screws, Right Angle L Brace for Shelves Furniture Wood, 10 Pcs Review:


I just bought a rolling computer desk, which is a wheeled desk shell. The desk joints did not hold and the side boards were separating from the back piece.

I figured glue was not solid enough to hold the desk together since there was a lot of stress on the joints when it is moved.

I screwed the braces on the interior portions of the desk, so they are not normally visible. Not an elegant repair, but they worked well for keeping everything solid at right angles.



Richohome Heavy Duty Non-Mortise Bed Rail Fittings Wood Bed Rail Bracket -Set of 4 Review:


Richohome Heavy Duty Non-Mortise Bed Rail Fittings Wood Bed Rail Bracket -Set of 4
As advertised. Arrived quickly. The posts are screwed into the plates with only a couple of threads. I saw no way to "tighten" or secure the post to the plate. I chose to used a different bed rail mount from the same company:

This mount was more difficult to cut the slots in my bed posts, but overall I believe it is much more secure and durable.



Wall Mount Children’s Art Projects Display Stainless Steel Wire Rod with 48 Hanging Clips 16.5 Feet Long Review:


This is a great product for the price! I was hesitant at first because of the previous reviews about damaged pieces. Plus a friend of mine did have to buy more supplies at the hardware store to hang the product. However, I did not experience ANY of the aforementioned issues. The only reason why I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because the directions on how to hang the product are not the best. If you are handy, then you can probably figure it out without needing directions however if you are not so handy, steps 2-4 are a bit tough to understand.
