Will it work on brick?

Need to mount it to brick steps, will this work well?
Asked by: kevins7
Two problems with bricks 1) some kinds of anchors can crack the brick and 2) the brick itself can come loose To avoid this I's drill deep holes that go well pat the brick and into whatever is under it, more brick or concrete. The fill the hole with epoxy and press in a threaded stud. HD sells these studs and the epoxy in caulk gun tubes. Building code requires that the post support a 300 pound side ways force applied to the top of the post. This could rip a brick loose so use studs that reach well below the bottom of the brick.

Does the post have a way to level it when installing?

I noticed that other manufactures of this kind of post kit allow the ability to level the post so that it is straight. This is done with adjustable set screws on the base plate. Can you do the same with this kit or do you have to use shims? Thanks
Asked by: grayhair1
Product is now shipped with 2 shims, save yrself trouble (if missing) and buy a pack of shims (SHM1-12-TW), which would be applied beneath the plate. Partially drive the anchors before using shims, once blumb in both directions, drive them down tight.

Great product, but as a DIY'ER, a few installation tips would have been helpful in the manual, such as: 1) Use the provided steel plate as a pattern for hole position. I used duct tape, to keep it from wandering during drilling. 2) when using the product, use the Veranda Post sleeve for a snug fit. 3) Product is now shipped with 2 shims, save yrself trouble (if missing) and buy a pack of shims (SHM1-12-TW). 4) I used Tapcon (24292) 5/16x2-1/4 concrete anchors which require a 1/4 bit. Don't cheap out on the masonary bit, using a 6" allows dust to settle to bottom of hole. 5) Make sure to check for plumb before assemble. Learned from 1st post, 7 others, piece of cake. See other tips relating to the rest of the (stair rail) project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Wonderful post to use with the Veranda railings. Very easy to install on wood but little bit more difficult when installing on brick steps or concrete patio. Make sure you use very good concrete anchors.

The vinyl sleeve did fit over the 2 plastic inserts. We had to cut the plastic inserts down so the vinyl sleeve would fit over them. The whole purpose for buying these posts were that the vinyl sleeves would fit over them after the posts were installed.

I needed to install railing on concrete and this system is the only way to do it. You will need to use a good hammer drill. You can use the extra steel backer plate as a pattern. I would start to drill a hole. If it started to wonder off I would go to another hole. Drill a hole. Tap in the anchor bolt. tighten down the nut and drill another hole. The one hole the started to wonder off I would go back and drill the with the steel plate bolted down using it to properly locate the hole. Remove the four nuts and plate. Now bolt down the inner steel post with plastic sleeves and outer post. Now you are ready to attach railing and glue down post top. This product does what it is designed to do and does it well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very solid posts, good materials Very solid posts, heavy duty metal construction. However, when installing the rails (with the recommended hardware) go to the tools section and buy a few hardened or carbon steel drill bits (it calls for 5/32 inch drill bits to pre-drill). I 'had' a half-dozen of that size, regular drill bits, none of which made it past putting-up the first rail - they all broke, no matter how careful I was in drilling. I believe it was due to the angle of the hole being drilled (not straight into the metal post - read your instructions carefully). Bought carbon steel drill bits (a bit more expensive - 2x the cost of a regular drill bit), but it took me less time to install the last four rails than it did to install the first one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Post install kit - insert dimensions did not match post The post install kit was supposed to work with Veranda posts, however the dimensions of the plastic fitting of the post inserts which fit on the metal shaft were slightly larger than the post interior so, if driven in to the post, the post cracked. I had to manually sand down the inserts to make them fit. Additionally, the screws which came with the railing install kit were too long to work well with the post kit. If the post install kit matched the post and proper length screws were provided, I would give it high marks for quality and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install, very sturdy The only screws provided were wood screws. If you are installing in concrete, you will need to purchase bolts. Once installed it is very sturdy.
