Answer: 
Hi Liz, Thanks for your question. We recommend cleaning the aluminum with warm soapy water, and then rinsing thoroughly with clean water. We recommend cleaning 2 - 3 times each year, or as often as it is necessary.

Wall Mount and Custom Cuts

This question is from 6 ft. Aluminum Stair Hand and Base Rail in Black

July 30, 2016
Looking at using the stair kit. I see where I can cut them. When I cut and adjust the angle, how do I account for making sure the rungs inside are straight up and down? Is that a matter of cutting the first spacers? I only need a length of 2.5 feet.

I wanted to mount the top o stair to a wall and the bottom will be a stair post. For the wall, do I use a wall mount or a stair mount? I am assuming a stair mount as I need the angle.

Hi Dennis, Thanks very much for your question. You would use the US Stair Hand & Base Rail Connectors at the top of your stairs to attach to the wall, as well as at the bottom to attach to the stair post. The Stair Hand & Base Rail comes with 2 sets of brackets in the kit. To ensure your pickets are plumb, we suggest confirming this with a level. To center the pickets within the section, you would cut the first and last spacers, both top and bottom. Please give us a call if you have any additional questions.

Hi DoobieSteve, thank you for your question. Yes, our railing can be cut to fit your specific size requirements. We recommend a miter saw with a non-ferrous cutting blade. Please feel free to call us toll free at 877-883-7325 if you have any other questions.

Answer: 
Hi there Carrieb
We don't recommend that you install just the posts and railings for a stair application. Our picket infill was designed to adhere with residential building code, and as such, to go without the pickets is not advisable. Please let us know if you have further questions or concerns, and thank you.

Customer Reviews

6 ft. Aluminum Stair Hand and Base Rail in Black is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from GREAT DIY PROJECT This is the perfect DIY project....instructions are vague and the only video skips over the difficult parts leaving it up to you to figure out. Customer Service is responsive and when we called several times their best suggestion was to get someone with construction skills to helps up. You will get plenty of DIY time on this, as the system needed to be assembled and disassembled multiple times to measure and install correctly. For extra fun, make sure to try to install the stair rails.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not buy again This is not a DIY product. Top and bottom rails and brackets are easy enough to cut and assemble. No problems there. But the pickets are a pain on the straight sections - and impossible on the stairs. The picket system, using spacers between each picket and requiring four clean square cuts on little pieces of aluminum that don't fit any kind of saw well, make the entire system junk. And if your cuts are 1/16 off - the whole thing rattles. Would not recommend this product. First product review I've ever written. I feel that strongly about it.

I had made a mistake in a cut of a piece of this railing and needed one additional 6' section. It was installed on my front porch. The original larger on-line order was placed inside the store using one of your assistant managers, who was very helpful. The order was placed and he informed me before I left the store my entire order was in stock in the store and I could probably pick it up in a couple of hours. I received an e-mail a little later after lunch the order was ready for pick-up. I went over shortly after that and picked up my complete order with no problem. This why I like Home Depot more than that other store. Great product and was easy to assemble and install.

You should be proficient with light metal work and carpentry. I used a battery operated band saw and a skill saw to cut pieces to a proper sizes. Watch the vids its very accurate on the skills you will need. Costumer like it so much I am installing 2 more units.

Finished assembly looks substantial and professional, however, the assembly (especially the pickets) is tedious and the included directions are sparse. End posts and vertical pickets must be purchased separately and the package content labeling is not clear. Installation is best left to the professional.

Bought the rails, posts, pickets, etc. for a 18x36 foot deck and two stairs. Everything arrived in good condition. The railing system for the deck went fast and easy, but the stairs took us a lot longer. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. Would highly recommend this product.

If it had not been for Home Depot, the manufacture of this product would have taken advantage of me. The product is good and Home Depot is great! The quality control of the company, "Peak" is horrible! I had to send back almost every part due to poor quality control. Whoever at Peak that is in control of the product that goes out the door is asleep. Every piece was either wrong or damaged. The first shipment took a month to get to my house. After I learned my lesson, I had them to ship it to my local Home Depot and got each shipment within 3 days. Due to shipment loss and the constant damaged or wrong pieces being shipped, the job took me 2 months to complete. Also, don't believe the Youtube video on installation. I'm a licensed aircraft mechanic and I would NEVER do an install like this again. The stairs are a nightmare. Their installation video makes it look so easy, IT IS NOT! In the event you think this is the cheap way to go, think again. My porch is 4' X 6', with 6' stair rails. The cost was just about $1000. If I had it to do over again, I would have hired someone to put in customized rod iron rails. I can assure you that if anyone owns stock in the Peak Company, it's not going to be worth the paper it is written on. They do not have a clue as to what is leaving their plant or, they just don't care. Home Depot took great care of me and held Peak to the the fire. I have great respect for Home Depot, I have 0 for Peak.
