Take apart your bed; remove the mattress, box spring, ledges and rails. Take a look at the rails to determine how they connect to the headboard and footboard. If they attach with hooks, you need a conversion kit with hooks. Likewise, if the rails bolted, you need a conversion kit that attaches with bolts.

Make sure to buy one that will adhere properly to your headboard and footboard, either by hooks or screws. Mount the drive rails to your headboard and footboard. If your track bolts, tighten them securely, without over tightening.
Find the center support rails. There is one in the middle of each rail. Swing them so that they meet in the middle, forming a long railway that stretches the width of the bed frame. Connect the two rails together with the hardware provided in your conversion kit. Adjust the side brackets so that they securely hold the spring in place.
