I have post spacing of 94inches and 109inches. I understand that I just 'trim to fit' for the 94inch installation. How do I fit the 109inch spacing.

Answer: 
There is no where that I know of that by code would allow a 109" span. Max span on handrail is 8'. You'll need to add a post to do handrail period.

Answer: 
Jake, the 109 inch spacing will require a post in the middle of the run and two 6' kits trimmed down. Model#'s EZ6RHB x2, EZPRHB-W x1, EZBCHB-LP x1. Simply type the model#'s in the search bar.

Answer: 
Yes, this 96" railing kit is easily fit to virtually any size opening simply by cutting the top and bottom rails with a 60 - 80 tooth WOOD blade on your chop/circular saw prior to assembling the railing.

Yes, this kit includes all mounting brackets and fasteners for installation between existing wood posts. We also include a Midfoot ("squash block") that when installed under the bottom, reduces defection during downward pressure (keeps railing from sagging when kids stand on the bottom rail). The Midfoot is not mandatory to meet IBC codes, but it does make the railing feel more solid. The EZ Handrail Read More

The Midfoot is not mandatory to meet IBC codes, but it does make the railing feel more solid. The EZ Handrail System is unique in that each 1" baluster has two 1.5" screws securing it to the top rail and two 1.5" screws securing it to the bottom rail. This 4-point construction makes it one of the strongest mechanical railing panels on the market.

8 ft. x 36 in. Textured Black Aluminum Baluster Railing Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Do not use this product for stairs railing! I bought this for a hand railing on steps from our deck. These are not rackable - you must cut each rail for the stairs angle. This was difficult - and took several tries before I got it exactly right! If they were rackable (able to be angled in place) it would have been so much easier! While these may be useful for straight railings, they are a pain for angled installations.

Shipping was fast and the product arrived in perfect condition. I would recommend to the company to include directions on installing into masonry/brick as part of their standard instructions just like they do for wood and concrete since it requires different hardware. THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS UNPARALLELED!! I called with questions (3 different times) on installation into brick and was immediately forwarded to Dan who spent as much time as I needed explaining exactly what I needed to do. Installed, it is a solid rail and looks fantastic. EZ Handrail makes it a very doable DIY project.

Easy to install, great looking and how can you loose with aluminim rail for longevity. Other rails for less $$ would have required some jury rigging to work as a 36" high handrail as they were designed as a 42" high barrier rail. EZ rail worked for me right out of the box. By the way, if your concerned about shipping aluminum rail parts, dont be. They arrived in perfect condition, picked up at store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid handrail solution that doesn't break the bank EZRail handrails came from Home Depot well-packaged, and on time for the install. We installed 3 8-foot sections, 8 6-foot sections and four support posts in 2 days, without heroics. EZRail is a well designed and well manufactured product, an easy railing solution within my budget. Definitely will consider the product for my other railing needs throughout my property.

This project is a little more challenging when using this railing as stair rail. If you take your time, I assure you it will come out beautiful. Instructions were straight forward, but took a little skill at cutting each spindle and putting it together. Overall, we love the completed look. We plan on buying more railing to put around our new porch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An easy but tedious assembly, and installation with fine results This replacement railing comprises extruded aluminum frame members and an assortment of neatly-packaged fasteners for various wood or masonry installations. Each vertical piece requires 4 screws for assembly, so I think an electric drill with a 1/4" socket attachment is a must. I think it could easily take 2 hours to assemble with just a hand wrench or socket wrench. A 1/4" screwdriver-style nut driver will not have sufficient torque for those without strong hands, as the self-tapping screws must cut into the aluminum. The holes were accurately placed and aligned well for assembly. The sections are easy to shorten with a hacksaw, or even a crosscut wood handsaw, as the aluminum is soft. The installation was easy, and the final appearance was good. My only complaint was that one of the 2 sections I purchased had a significant dent in the top rail that must have occurred in store or warehouse handling prior to my purchase. I opted to massage this out with a hammer and wooden block, with satisfactory results.
