Product Overview

The satin black angled shoes are specifically designed to ease the installation of iron balusters. They provide a smooth & elegant transition from the bottom of the handrail or the top of the knee wall to the satin black baluster collection. They also ensure the installation holes, drilled to insert the balusters are completely covered up. The angled shoes have the same high quality satin black finish as their baluster counterparts. From stair treads, stair railing and a complete selection of stair parts, SureWood-LNL has what you need to make your stairs beautiful.

  • Flat shoes provide a clean, crisp transition from the metal baluster to the wood components of the stair system
  • Powder-coated, high quality satin black finish is ready for installation
  • Use angled shoes where the baluster meets the angle/rake of the handrail or on knee-walls
  • Comes with a standard 38 degree angle, but the rise and runs vary region to region and building to building also the angle of shoes might require slight adjustment with belt sander, file or grinder
  • Perfect accent to your stair railing system

Customer Questions & Answers

Why is the opening of the angled shoe a square when the balusters are round at the top (square at the bottom)?

Is this designed for stairs that are 8" x 12" or is there another product for those stairs?
Asked by: LionelTrain
The round portion at the top of the baluster should be recessed into the railing, leaving the square profile of the baluster to be covered by the shoe. The shoe is long enough that the round portion of the baluster should not be an issue. Another tip, you may want to apply an epoxy to secure the balusters so they don't move and/or rattle.

Angle of shoes might require slight adjustment with belt sander, file or grinder.

How easy is it to do this? Does Home Depot have a grinder in the store?
Asked by: LionelTrain
Hi Ger, this is not an easy task, and proper safety measures must be practiced when doing this. It is best performed with a grinder or belt sander. Home Depot associates are not equipped to cut these shoes in the stores. I would recommend contacting a qualified staircase installer who has experience with metal installations if you are uncomfortable doing this type of installation. If you have additional questions, we'll be glad to help. Thank you.

2 in. x 1/2 in. Satin Black Angled Metal Baluster Shoe is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incredibly poor quality The quality control on these is basically non-existent. After I glued the balusters in, I was shocked to find that the failure rate on these is about one in five. The allen wrench heads strip very easily, so they cannot be tightened into place. Many tightened but then stripped, so I'll never be able to move them again for repairs. I ended up having to either glue them down or rip out balusters and replace them

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great I read the reviews when ordering but felt i didn't have much choice. I replaced 86 balusters requiring 172 shoes- angled and square. I found that by creating a small wedge from heavy stock paper cut into 1/2" x 1/2" strips and folded and placing this wedge opposite the set screw did the trick. When the set screw was snugged the wedge prevented the tweaking and gaps i read about. Takes a while and the use of needle nose pliers helps with placing the wedge- but all 86 of my top shoes are perfect and look great. Should modifications like this be necessary when you buy a product? No, But given the alternative of no shoe, a crooked shoe or a perfect fitting shoe - the time and no cost fix is worth it when your done. No grinding required.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design I was required to glue the part on the the entire banister in place because the set screws forces the angled part away from the rail and creates a 1/4" gap. Just a poor and cheap design on the manufacturers behalf. They should have put the screw on an angle like the parts Home Depot carried 1 year ago.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Baluster shoes are poorly made. Hex (Allen) set screws are not consistent in size. Requires three different allen tools. Also when tightening set screws the shoe torques sideways leaving a large gap between shoe and wood rail and/or base plate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install We decided to redo our stair rail...easy to install, price was better online than in store....we were going to use them only on the bottom, however decide to place them on the top also...2nd order came fast...we finished the whole project quicky...i love the transformation of the stair case

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design Placement of the set screw causes the shoe to pull away from the banister leaving an ugly gap. Recommend picking up a tube of black adhesive caulk and gluing in place, skip the set screws all together.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too bad, product had potential, but the design engineer blew it! As others have said, the set screw changes the angle and creates a ugly gap. if your not going to design a precision hole, then at least offer two set screws (one on each side) to allow for angle correction. very disappointing to say the least. (Made in China). I would have paid twice this to have a properly designed product. Now I have three choices. Shim it, remove it or leave it as is. Well, I can tell you option #3 will not be being perused.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design left a nice project wanting As most other people have indicated, the ugly gap between the railing and the shoe detracts significantly from this project. Stair cases are at 42 degree angles whereas these are cut at 45 degrees. To an untrained eye, probably ok. But to someone who 'cares about the details', this is pretty unacceptable. Poor , poor design. Better off not having these in the first place..looks almost as nice.
