I have a bed that might be the predesessor of the SORUM (looks similar, but mine is pine with grey cushions over the headboard). I got it from my Mum, and she hasnt included any brackets, screws etc!
The instructions for the SORUM dont quite match my bed though, as on my bed the bracket that holds the midbeam is different (and the crossbraces therefore cant be attached to it, as is the case with the SORUM). I read on another thread that these crossbraces sometimes attach to the middle of the DOKKA midbeam via a bracket, which seems to fit with my bed. And I dont have a bracket ....
Can someone post a
of what the bracket looks like (so I can see what I am up against, and maybe get my Mum to find it) and/or let me know how I can get one.
I couldn't find a picture of the bracket you're looking for, but would describe it this way: it's rectangular shaped, about 7-8 cm. long x 1-2 cm. wide; the edges of it are "rolled" over, to give a little thickness (2-3 mm), but the ends are flat and have a hole drilled in them. It's made of the same galvanized steel as the mid beam.
If you can't find this bracket, you can substitute the Hamar mid beam for the Dokka, though I don't think it's as high quality as the Dokka.
