All our upholstered headboards are made with an inset back.
This means that when you mount your headboard there will only ever be a small gap between the back of the headboard and the wall.
We offer 2 ways of fixing the our standard headboards, and also offer our Winged Headboards with a wall retaining bracket:
As standard, all of our headboards come pre fitted with the strut legs (unless you order an Easy Fit Wall Mounting Pack). The struts are secured to the headboard and then slide over the mounting bolts that are already located on your bed. We make our own strong plywood struts designed specifically for our headboards.
When the headboard arrives with you, the struts will be folded up against the headboard and secured by the top set of screws.
Using the Allen Key provided, you will have to loosen the top screws, swing the struts down into position and fit the second bolt. We recommend that you leave all screws slightly loose to allow leeway whilst you slide the struts over the back of your divan base.
Once the headboard and struts are in place over the mounting bolts on the back of your bed, tighten up the screws.
Please note that the struts extend below the bottom of the headboard by 24ins (60cm). If your bed base and mattress overall height is less than 24ins (60cm), you may need to cut the struts down using a hand saw.

We recommend Wall Mounting Packs for our taller headboards. Your headboard will arrive fitted with a split batten, and another will be supplied for you to fix on the wall. An Easy Fit Wall Mounting Pack costs an additional £29.00, if you would like to buy one, click here.
It is a simple DIY job and when complete all you do is hang the headboard on the split batten supplied. Fitting instructions are provided with your headboard.

Please note that if you choose to wall mount your headboard and you have plasterboard walls or lath and plaster walls, you must ensure that you use plugs/fixings that are appropriate for your wall. Click here to view our recommendations.
Alternatively, if you decide after receiving your headboard that you wish to fix it to the wall, we can send out the Easy Fit Wall Mounting Pack (postage £12.50). All of our headboards are pre fitted with T Nuts to accept the hexagonal bolts supplied. You will have to attach the MDF plate (shown in the image below as this part is fitted to your headboard) onto your headboard, and also fit the MDF wall mounting plate onto your wall.

If you have ordered one of our Winged Headboards, assembly may be required if you are not having delivery via our 2 man courier.
Our Winged Headboards are supplied with a wall mounting pack for your headboard to be retained against the wall.
