Customer Questions & Answers

What type driver is needed for the supplied screws? Does Home Depot have this driver?

Asked by: Sabu
They do require a square drive bit unlike what the DeckoRail rep sail. They should have included the bit with the brackets. It does not even say on the literature what type of bit is required. Bad oversight.

Deckorail installation

When measuring the length of the rail for mounting. How much more needs to be accounted for with the bracket
Asked by: GRB
None. The railing mounts flush to the post, and the bracket merely surrounds the railing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expensive plastic with chhezy screws Almost 13 bucks for 4 cheap plastic brackets, and the screws provided kept shearing off. A great idea killed by a ridiculous price and super cheap hardware. Big disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient but hardware terrible Once you line up and center the bottom brackets evenly the whole rail and top brackets go in perfectly. The predrilled holes in the bracket perfectly pull in and center the rails as long as you measured the rails correctly. The screws are garbage. You can't over tighten or the heads just snap off. the only nice thing is the heads are black and blend in. When I get some extra time I am going to get stainless screws and replace them all. I can hit the heads with black nail polish if it bothers me. Overall great bracket. If you have the time and money just get real screws and they will last a long time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rail connectors Not sure how long these will hold up, hard plastic, expected something sturdier for a railing support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very study railing bracket First you do have to use a square - not a star or hex - driver for the screws. Use a number 2 and you can get a 2 pack for under $10. The brackets use short screws to hold the railing to the brackets and long screws to bolt the bracket to the post. The screws are sharp and take to the wood very easily - no muscling or starter hole needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from interesting accessorie we remodeled a small wooden porch into a bigger composite deck with handicapped stairs. The size and angles were out of the norm and needed special material. Coming across those brackets and using them was one of the highlights of this project and was even surprising to our builder. Definitely would use them again if building a railing where 2x4 composite or wood is involved to hold spindles

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brackets The brackets are easy to use and seem to hold the railings pretty well. My only recommendation would be to make the a bit deeper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Deck Railing I decided to use these for uniformity and ease of installation. They do look quite nice. A couple issues to watch for. The holes for holding the rails are 3/8 inch from the edge of the railing so the rails should be predrilled and aim the screws back into the railing away from the end or the rail can split. Also the screw heads will snap off if driven in too fast or far. Even the low torque setting may not prevent this as the mounting post grain varies. So I used short quick bursts to drive the screws in. But all in all it makes a good looking installation. One set of rails that I had to custom cut put the posts into these brackets do I had to grind clearance for that. Not bad though.
