Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gandy Gives the deck a great look!
These rails were easy to assemble and look GREAT! a Little more expensive than wood, but you never have to worry about power washing and re-staining them (if you've never done that before, it's a real pain!). I bought handrails for both the top and bottom rails instead of using 2 by 4's, which I thought gave it a more finished look, as well. For the handrails on the steps, I had to cut the balusters as they were too long, but cut easily with a cutoff wheel on my chop saw. Cut them at 45 degrees so they fit the top and bottom railing seamlessly. Although I put together several sections by myself, it is helpful to have another set of hands. Very quick shipping!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by BirdieNumNum Piece of cake
These were a snap to use and they look really nice. I built all the railings around our patio and my husband was pretty impressed when he came home & saw them.
The only down side is that they didn't come with screws even thought the instructions say to "use the enclosed screws". Not a huge deal, but I would have been upset had I not had some on hand since I live way out in the country and a trip to town & back takes a good hour.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by VeritasHome Excellent product, simple installation
Used these to replace the rusted metal railings on my front porch. The ball style fasteners are included in the package with the balusters and make installation easy. No drilling 3/4" holes in your railings to hold them in place, just attach the quickball mount to the top and bottom rails and slide the balusters on. There is a certain amount of coordination involved, as with any baluster installation, to keep everything in place while installing the top rail. The balusters themselves are thin aluminum tubing with a vinyl type coating. Nothing fancy, just plain and workable. Exactly what I was looking for!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Eric Beware; not easy to install over longer lengths
The balustrade connectors "fastball" do not hold the tubes fast before the second half is assembled. It is very difficult to align all of them simultaneously and if just one post falls out of alignment you can dislodge all of them trying to fix the crooked one and have to begin anew. This problem grows vastly more difficult at longer spans. Also be sure to not use any warped beams or the posts won't sit flush.
All in all they are cheap and look pretty good but are much more difficult to install than other systems. Rear mounted balustrades would be vastly easier to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mark08 Great Product
They look great. They really enhance the value of my deck and give it a professional look. The system is easy to use. The instructions were surprisingly accurate on how to measure and assemble the product. I'd recommend building a simple jig for finally assembly. Each section took about 15 min to assemble.
