Description: Patent for a new and improved brace for bed frames. This design "consists in providing a transverse slat at each of its ends with a pair of diverging hooks, the same to be connected to the rail on each side by means of screw-eyes, and thereby preventing the bedstead from spreading, bracing it transversely and obliquely" (lines 19-25).
