Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
A four way (square) bit for your drill works very good. It would be nice if it came with this, but most of us have one around the house somewhere.

Answer: 
Yes, but with some difficulty. I had to cut wedges to allow them to fit on the part of my deck that was at a 45 degree angle.

Answer: 
None. The railing mounts flush to the post, and the bracket merely surrounds the railing.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy rail installation These rail connectors made the railing installation around my gazebo a snap. The black color looks great too. July 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Worked as advertised Product was easy to use. Product worked as advertised May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really works great Really surprised how well they work. When I bought them I was thinking plastic? I tried them and found them to really work well! Railings are super strong! Happy I used them! Well worth the price! April 13, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Make sure you have a square drive bit or use your own #8 deck screws These brackets were used in conjunction with LIGHTNING RAILS (see separate review) and 4-1/2 ft. x 4 in. x 4 in. Pressure-Treated Wood Double V-Groove Deck Posts (see separate review). The brackets are ideal for rails that are mounted horizontal - ie, parallel to a deck surface. They are a bit less than ideal, but still workable, when used on stair rails. Why? Because the angle of the stair rail placement, sometimes the screws that are supposed to go into the rail missed the rail entirely. The brackets come with screws that have heads already painted black, so they blend in better, however, they screws require a square drive, which I did not have immediate access to. I used standard #8 deck screws - 1 1/4 inch to hold the bracket to the rail, and 2 1/2 inch to hold the bracket to the post. There were a few brackets that I had to cut apart and install in two separate sections - this is NOT a design flaw of the bracket - rather it was because the metal balusters got in the way, due to the length of the rail and where I cut the rail. Even though I had cut a few of the brackets to make them work in my environment, they still performed as they should - holding everything in place in a nice tight fit. August 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 10, 2015
