How to Attach a Ladder to Your Metal Bunk Bed

Did you buy ladders for you metal bunks only to procrastinate on actually attaching them to your bunk beds? The good news is, tackling this little project is much easier than you may think. Here's a short video that demonstrates how...


  1. With a helper, hold the ladder in place.
  2. Insert the top ladder brackets (J Hooks) from behind. Don't attach them tightly, just enough to hold the weight of the ladder.
  3. Insert the bottom ladder brackets (J Hooks) from behind. You can "pin" the bracket to the spring base with your hand to make it easier to thread.
  4. Tighten all four bracket screws with the provided 4mm allen wrench (or a power drill with a 4mm allen wrench bit.
