Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rj Good product, poor instructions.
The overall quality of the railing is very good, however the brackets are not that great, if there is a failure this is where it will occur. The installation instructions are poor. These are advertised as a 6 foot railing, however the actual dimension is 67.75". Additionally you have to measure and cut all the balusters unless you are using a post and post jacket that is taller that the Veranda jacket which is 39". Once I figured out the way to install the first stair railing the second one went a lot quicker and smoother. Once installed these railings look great and are solid. The only other downside is the quality of the screws provided with the kit, the metal is somewhat soft and if you are not careful the square head strips out easily. Overall I am pleased with them.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Danny Required modification for installation
The quality is fine, but as others have mentioned, the holes only work to a certain angle. How hard would it have been to allow a little more adjustment in manufacture? I have to go back and use a special 1/2" belt sander (from the well known HF store) to bevel each hole to accommodate the required angle. This is unacceptable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rollie Easy to install.
Easy instructions to follow. Great looking product.
Put up entire railings for porch in an hour.
Can be installed with one person. No need for a helper.

Stair kit, ordered it on line. Picked it up at local Home Depot. It came sooner than they told me. Every thing was in box, in great condition. Will order on line again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sfreeman Very Sturdy and nice product for the money
I looked at several rails at several stores before ultimately deciding on this. I was unsure that the quality would not be comparable with the other, higher priced brands but I was wrong. The rail is very very sturdy and feels solid on my staircase. My stairs are angled further than recommended (37°) but I was able to still use these by back cutting the holes with a dremel tool. This allowed me to angle the rail just a little more and work with what I needed. Overall a very good product that I will be buying more of in order to do the rest of my decks/porches.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ejshea Good product/Poor directions
As an avid DIY, with with over 40 years of experience, I found this stair kit a little difficult to install for my application. First of all, the directions were very difficult to understand and the pictures/diagrams were small and hard to see, somewhat washed out on my copy. As another reviewer commented the angle adjustment of the rail brackets was not suitable for all applications. I found out I could reverse the rail bracket assembly to gain a little more angle which did work on my stairs. The finished product does look good but I recommend doing a couple of dry runs before actually doing the final assembly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pops Great product, Good Value, Easy to install
I installed the railings on a small deck with many angles that is four feet off the ground. Pay attention to the description letting you know the angle of the stairs that it will accommodate. Although I have a good bit of construction experience, I thought it would be very easy to use even for a beginner. Great value and the finished product was great.
