Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Silverfox15 Install was difficult at first
The product came as expected and looks great. The only issue that I had was installation. I attempted to install the balusters with the bottom railing attached. Big mistake!! I found the best way was to assemble each section was to do it flat on the ground then securing the section with two pieces of scrap wood and then putting them in place. Knowing this from the start would have saved me some time with install.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nate Overall good product.... but use different screws
These arrived in perfect condition and well packaged. They look much much better than the 2x2 wood balusters that was the original plan. Everything comes in the package with no need to by separate pegs. Easy to assemble and sturdy but there are a couple issues.
Included screws have brittle heads. I broke off a couple of the screw heads when installing. I thought it was the impact driver I was using, but then I switched to using a little 12 volt drill and it happened again. Use 2" PT rated deck screws instead.
The pegs that hold the balusters have a slight amount of play in them, so if there is even a 1/16" gap they will rattle a bit when you walk around the deck. PT wood is going to shrink as it dries so this is bound to happen. This is not a big deal at all, but if you think it will bug you just use wood that is Kiln dried after treatment (more expensive) and make sure that any bows in the wood between the top and bottom rails are pointed toward each other when you torque it down.
Those are long explanations for the 2 cons, but neither one is really a big deal.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sneed What? No square driver for screws?
I bought three boxes of these balusters. When it came time to install I found the screws that were included were square drive screws. I didn't have a square drive bit at my summer home nor did I have enough screws to replace the ones that came with the balusters. So, I had to travel a 32 mile round trip to the nearest hardware store to get the correct bit. It's a little aggravating to be in the middle of a project and have to stop for something as small as a square driver bit.
That makes an otherwise good product a little less than desirable. I think for the price a bit to drive the screws provided would be a reasonable request. Or provide phillips head screws. By the way, I checked all three boxes and no square bit driver was included in any.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grizzy Good product for application.
After considering wood I decided these balusters would better meet my needs. Low maintenance, more open look.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Sharp looking and pretty easy. Actual measure is 26 1/4"
As long as you're careful with your top and bottom placements, assembly is pretty easy. Two person job if you have a lot in a row.
Important: tubes are exactly 26" but the top and bottom fittings add a little. Put one together and confirm actual length before 'painting' yourself into a corner.
