Application The Retro-Hook Plate facilitates the installation of a hook plate to the bed rail by means of 8 included screws. This method of attachment is advantageous when the usual hook plate installation method is not available. For example, if damage to the bed rail prevents the hook plate from being installed in the usual manner, the Retro-Hook Plate may be installed by simply being screwed into the inside of the bedrail. Heavy-Duty Construction These hook plates are made with 13 gauge steel and are the standard configuration for most American made beds.
