Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Petebob hinge good, hardware terrible
Had a professional install. The hinges were fine but the screws are JUNK!
The screws are stainless coated and painted white. They strip out VERY easily. When screwing to the post just use decking screws and paint the heads white.
Make sure to predrill !!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RIJock Does Not Work with Enclave - Beware!
When installing Enclave railings, these hinges/brackets DO NOT WORK with the Metal Post Sleeve bracket. The screw holes in the metal bracket are wider than the hole in the steel bracket and therefore cannot screw both screws into the wood post.
You cannot reverse the bracket either on the Enclave because the bracket section with two screws is wider than the bottom rail.
We thought we purchased the wrong hardware, and went back to HD and found no compatible hardware. For safety concerns we were forced to modify the section of bracket with two screw holes by drilling a screw hole in the middle so we could get two screws into the wood. Looks sloppy, but the posts were already set in concrete and our options were limited. This is a known issue to Veranda. VERY disappointed. Even though the package says it is compatible with Enclave it is not.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chad86tsi Works great
Others complain about the screw heads stripping, these screws were like any other stainless screw I've used. Not fair to compare to carbon steel screws. Pre-drill as suggested and use the supplied bit in each box and you will be fine.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Race701 Unacceptable Mounting Hardware
The mounting brackets resemble hinges. The coating must be applied after the brackets are assembled. I had to hold the brackets in a vise and hit with a hammer to make the bracket bend to the desired angle. For what 2 brackets, screws and driver cost....this is unacceptable. Also the brackets do not come with mounting instructions. The stair rail kit contains inaccurate instructions. the placement of the bracket is dependent on the angle of the stair rail.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rnm1998 Stair rail hinge kit
Works as described. Does not give a sense of security for hand rail. 1/8" off set pulls rail into post, forming a very tight fit. Under pressure you may notice a little give.
