Ratings and reviews

Rail needs to be tightened every couple of weeksHarshaneeMy daughter is bumping into this rail a lot and it loosens over time so needs to be tightened every few weeks. We bought the Slakt bed with pullout bed and storage and it’s good to note that this doesn’t fit on the bottom bed and only the top.3
Happy Camper1Great product with easy installation. Looks sleek and has been working great for my toodler.5
Good quality but doesn"t fit with KURAdolphin2020IKEA just sells one guard rail, and it is not even compatible with their own KURA bed. And it is not written anywhere that it's not or the specifications about the width of the bed side that it is attached to. So I just wasted my time. At least the return was without a hassle.3
not goodkang1234The bed frame and fixings are slowly loosening!1
Fatemeh SadrI am happy with the product.4
Perfect bed rail.KfilionThis is technically made for the toddler use beds but we bought it and it fits nicely on a twin ikea bed that we bought for my toddler. It is just the right amount of barrier to keep her and all her stuffies from falling off the bed.5
LeslieckWorks great and looks a lot nicer than the mesh ones.5
RafifI bought 3 to install on my kids bed5
Perfect Guard RailDiaspora3We just upgraded our toddler to a big kid IKEA bed and needed to get an extra guard rail. I love these rails because they aren't bulky, provides the safety needed for my toddler, and very easy to adjust to the bed. I highly recommend this product to parents.5
Too shortASTM-1 for beingToo short to be able to use with just any bed. It's designed specifically for toddler beds with low mattresses. My kids have gone straight to big beds after the crib and we just attached bed rails to them. One bed is the brimnes together with a regular Ikea mattress (I forget which) and the rail passes the mattress by just an inch, not nearly enough to secure the child. The second bed, for which we bought this rail, is the hemnes daybed that pulls out to a king. With both mattresses stacked, the rail, like with the brimnes, only surpasses the mattress by an inch. But if we remove one mattress, lowering it by 5 inches, then the rail can secure the child. Thankfully we have a place to store the second mattress until the child is old enough to use the bed without the rail, or when we have guests over (on our also IKEA utaker guest bed). However, I saw another solution to this by an Ikea hacker who used an ekby shelf with the same width as the railing, just taller, drilled holes into it and attached the metal clips onto the shelf instead to make a higher guard rail. This does however leave you with sharp corners. -2 points for lack of safety. Since the rail attaches to the bed structure, it doesn't hug the mattress therefore leaving a significant gap between mattress and rail. I'm going to give this a trial run and see if I'm comfortable with this, otherwise I'd be returning it. If your mattress lays straight up against the bed frame, then this should be no problem.2
Looks great but doesn’t work!Elle0426We’ve been using the Vikare bed rail on our Hemnes day bed for our 3 year old for about a month now, and just as another reviewer mentioned, the metal bracket/clamp has bent due to pressure against the rail causing the entire rail to be loose to the extent of falling off. I think it was caused by my toddler rolling against the rail in her sleep- but that’s the whole point, to prevent her from falling off! We’ve since had to use card stock as shims to keep the rail fixed to the bed while we find another more permanent solution. Other than not working I love the minimal and simple look especially compared to other bed rails on the market that make the bed look like a hospital bed....2
Priced right only.PeterG8While this is priced well, I wouldn't recommend it if the bed that it's used on is real wood (opposed to what other IKEA furniture is made from.) This left multiple indentation along the side rail of my son's pine wood IKEA HEMNES bed which will look absolutely awful once he's old enough to no longer need the rail. As well as that kids being kids there is occasionally pressure placed on the rail which bends the metal brackets opened, requiring re-bending back to straight.1
Vikare Guard RailCnlikelyWe bought this for our 4 year old who keep falling out of her new bed. Works great and looks nice too!5
Easy and solidCrankyMamaWe recently purchased a bunk bed for our two children, and to be extra safe we picked up several of these guard rails to place at strategic locations. They are easy to attach, and hold very well in spite of curiosity by said children.5
Perfect guard railakd2012I bought this about a month back for my toddler daughters (1 year +) bed. we are very happy that she is protected from a fall during her sleep and has access to get down from a small bed5
RJP17Bought 5 of these and they all work as they should. Height is perfect to protect child from rolling off bed5
Good for guard kid"s bedLordIt is high enough to prevent kids off the bed in sleep. But the contact the bed frame is not solid enough.4
Excellent!Tara LeslieWe bought this rail for our daughters convertible crib to use in future but right now use it in our trailer on our sons bunk bed. It works perfectly. Doesn’t leave a mark and can be removed when we fold it up.5
PerfectKamran007I am so happy for this item.5
Short heightKris2311Just over 1 inch over the mattress. Wish they included the bumped on it few times (Needs cushioning).2
