Frequently Bought Together

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

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

Answer: 
Hi Ger, the round pin at the top is designed to be installed into handrails on balconies and staircases. The square base will fit around the square baluster. If installed correctly, the round top of the baluster should not be visible once the baluster is installed. If you have any other questions, we'll be glad to help you. Thank you!

Rated 1.8 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 31, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 21, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible design The design of the angled baluster shoe is awful. Tightening the screws causes the shoe to bow up on some of them, but not all. Change the design so the screw come in on the side, not the front. Some installed easily, others needed shims to keep it straight. You couldn't tell by looking at them which would work and which wouldn't. To finish your job, order twice as many as you need and pray you get lucky. Out of the 24 I needed, 10 installed easily and 14 needed a lot of extra work. May 5, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 April 30, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 15, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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 February 20, 2013
