Help me fix a squeaky bed

Posted by eoren1 (My Page) on

We have a wood bed frame that has been squeaking for a few weeks now. It is located where the side rail intersects with the head board. Basically there are 2 screws on the side rail and a metal slot in the head board for them to slide into and down. I bought some Pb Blaster Dry Lube teflon spray from Home Depot (after getting a bunch of blank looks when asking about the best product for this) and the squeaking stopped...for one week. Can anyone suggest a more permanent solution?
