I used the Wally World safety rails and screwed them down to the bed.
The mattress was way to light to hold them.

I used the same rails that Codespy posted. My sons used them for about 9 years. Picked ours up at Babies R Us.

Whatever you do, make sure that a child's head cannot get stuck in it. I read about a little boy who was hung when he got his head in a safety rail. It happened the first night he slept it it too.

Looks good. You would think that manufacturers would keep safety in mind. It really wouldn't cost much to make a bigger rail.

Not everyone wants a rail. My 9-10 year daughter on one side and my father-in-law on the other side doesn't want one.

Now, my 2 year needs one.

The problem is, you can't please everyone.

Second camper these have been in, some 1x2s, 1x4s and 2" dow rod for the top rail. I used heavy duty ell brackets to go under the mattress.
