Castors to legs.

Nothing to do with gardening!!!
I have a single bed currently with castors which have sockets in which to push them.
Am looking to replace with wooden legs but these are screw in.
A few years ago I did replace the castors on a sofa with screw in legs and the fixings came with it so just had to remove the old castors and sockets and bang in the new ones.
Have no idea where they came from but cannot see anything similar.
Could anyone point me in the right direction?
For example what are the sockets called.
Any help appreciated!

    try DFS or similar, they often offer options of different "feet"
    Maybe they'd have something suitable

    Try Screwfix.

    They have things like this (in different sizes) which you could maybe insert into the bed base(?) once you have removed the sleeve that holds the castor in place.

    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    Depending on the structure of the bed, you might need to cut triangles of plywood to screw to the underside of the base in the corners and then screw the legs to the plywood.

    Search B and Q website? Ikea also sell legs for things, in different heights. They also sell legs for beds, but I think they assume you’ve bought the bed they go on, as I didn’t see any separate fixing plates.
