V This invention relates tobed spring supports, particularly to a support for carrying the bed springs in wooden bedsteads.

Asis well known theusual wooden bedstead has uprightwooden side bars extending. along the sides of the bed and connect-' ing the head and foot portions of the bed stead, and it is common practice to support the'spring by fastening wooden strips along.-

the lower part of the inside wallof these upright bars by means of screws or other means, and then placing slats crossways of thebedstead resting at their opposite ends onthese strips. The bed spring frame rests directly on these slats. However, these are" unsatisfactory and a great'deal of trouble is experienced by the slats breaking or dropping off the strips, and the strips themselves break off or become loosened from the side bars. To overcome these objections we have devised metal brackets or supports which positively engage over the upper edges of the side bars of the Wooden bed and are so supported at their lower ends that there is no danger of their yielding or giving away Referring to the accompanying drawings in which we have shown. one embodiment of our invention,

. Fig. 1 is a vertical section through the side bar'member of a wooden bed stead showing our improved spring support applied thereto and in side elevation. j Fig. 2 is a detail elevation of the upper edge of this side bar looking fromthe right of Fig. l. p I

Fig. 3 is a detail section of the upper edge of this side bar. I

Fig. 4 is a side elevation of our improved support detached from the side bar member of the bed, and I Fig. 5'is an elevation thereof looking from the right of Fig. 4. 1 I11 the construction illustrated the upright side bar member of a Wooden bed stead is "I shown at 10. =Our improved support comprises a strap or supporting member 11 Which may be a piece of fiat metal having a hookrl2 at its upper end adaptedto engage over the upper edge of the wooden side bar 10, as shown in Fig. 1.

As this rest is spaced inwardly somewhat from the inner wall'of the side bar 10 it is"- desirable that some provided so that it is not necessary that the strain be taken by the supporting member 11, as it would tend to yieldoutwardly. For

this purpose we connect to the rest 16, or;
