Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bubba Didn't fit
While, in retrospect, I feel a little stupid, these did not fit the balusters I bought in the store. The store was out of stock so I assumed the online parts were the same. They are NOT! The balusters in the store are 5/8" and these are 1/2". Unfortunately the job site is 3 hours from the nearest store and I discovered the size difference on the job site. In order to return them to the store I had to phone Home Depot to get the order number (I didn't keep the e-mail). Just one more hassle.

Easy to install and use, be careful not to over tighten.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RA07 Flat shoe good;angled shoe not so much
We purchased flat shoes for the level bannister and angled shoes for the staircase. The set screws in the angled shoe made the shoe ride up and become unstable. This is a design problem that caused our carpenter to be required to re-tap the set screw holes from the side instead of the front of the shoe. This was an expensive fix in labor and time. The angle shoes need to be redesigned to eliminate this defect. If I had known of this issue, I would have selected a different product the defect is not apparent until the banisters and spindles and shoes are cut and in place and ready for final set screws. In other words not until it is too late and way too expensive to change course.

The hex head on the set screw stripped on more then half of the 24 I purchased. I had to grind down a small screw driver to make them work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doug Screws are very poor
I bought over 200 of these and at least 1/3 have a screw that strips out as soon as the first turn is made making the shoe unusable since the screw won't come out far enough to allow the baluster to fit inside. The others that didn't strip immediately did not allow firm tightening and would strip at that point. Had to caulk each one so it would stay in place. Very poor - definitely use a different shoe.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by majmike Just what I needed
Installing new balusters. Shoes were precision made and kept balusters in place while hiding my "imperfections."
