    I'm currently making a lift-up storage bed, and am researching which rail-to-headboard and rail-to-footboard fixings to use.

    The fixings need to:
    • be knock-down (or at least relatively easily disassembled)
    • pull the rails tightly to the head and foot of the bed and stay that way (I really don't like wobbly beds)
    • be concealed when viewed from the outside
    From eBay, it looks like the Americans and Australians have their standard ways of doing this, but shipping and import costs of their hardware are higher than the price of the hardware itself.
    What are the best pieces of kit that people in the UK have found?

    Google bed brackets. There are a few different types.
