How to Stop a Squeaky Metal Bed Frame

Written by heather montgomery | 13/05/2017

A squeaky bed can ruin a good night's sleep and become an annoying nuisance. The likely reason for the squeak is a loosening of nuts or bolts or metal rubbing against metal. Luckily, the fix for a squeaky bed is a relatively fast process.

Remove the mattress and box spring from the frame.

Look for loose nuts or bolts and tighten with a wrench. Make sure the bed frame is sitting straight and is not off balance or off centre. Ensure each side is directly parallel to the opposite side.

Hold a paper towel under each corner of the bed frame and spray the connecting metal with lubricating spray. Repeat for each corner of the bed.

Spray any remaining areas of the frame where metal joins together.
