The carriage bolt should be positioned such that it appears through the inner slot hole of the base frame. Take another half inch carriage bolt and insert it into the outermost slot. Slightly tighten the bolt so that it can be adjusted if necessary later in the install. At this time, put the headboard bracket flange weldment against the headboard bracket weldment and use two once inch hex bolts and nuts to secure together through the holes and slots. Repeat these steps with the second bracket assembly. Once you have both headboard assemblies situated in this manner, you can move to the next step. Take a measurement from the center of the mounting slots to the center of the headboard bracket flanges. Determine what adjustment is needed in order to attach the headboard.
