Rated 4 out of 5Â by Rickson Easy to work with
Arrived packaged perfect. The metal is easy to cut and manipulate for degree angles for stairs. Very satisfied how great they look and how cheap they are. Had to add an extra drilled hole with bolt and nut to support the Newel post to the Floor Flange.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Derek rails don't meet code
I bought these rails for my front porch, they are easy to cut and install. They had scratches on them but nothing a can of spray paint can't fix. The only problem is that the distance between the each rail is against the city code so my permit was denied. So check your city codes or you might be wasting your money.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by dcross Great product for the price
Installed 4 sections of fence around a pool deck. Found item was easy to install. Setup in less than 2 hours. Found a couple of small scratches on fencing when delivered that did not effect the overall finished look once installed.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Skier Good with some caveats
We had been looking for railing and found this online. We had considered a variety of options including composite railing and vinyl. It turned out that this was the best deal for the amount that we needed (which was quite a bit).
This railing is pretty good looking. It looks pretty fancy, especially for how inexpensive it is. It installed pretty easily as well. Please note that you will need all the pieces including the posts, the floor flange, and the connectors in order to install. It comes together nicely on a level surface and feels pretty sturdy. I don't think it would hold up to someone running full speed into it, but you can lean on it and probably fall into it without any problems.
However, the posts on the actual rail (not the newel post or the bigger posts on top and bottom, but the small ones in the middle) do bend relatively easily. They are a thin metal and you could easily change their shape. Just something to keep in mind. Also, there are only 7 of the thin posts on each piece of rail (unlike what is shown in the picture). So they are spaced a bit further apart.
Installation on stairs is a bit more tricky. You use the same pieces (no stair kit), and just bend and cut. This takes a lot of patience but isn't impossible. The rail cuts relatively easy with a grinder. I did find the stairs frustrating at times trying to get them all to line up etc. I don't know how other stair rails are, so I really can't compare though.
At the end of the day, we're happy with our purchase. It looks nice and serves it's purpose. It was quite a bit cheaper than the other options we were considering. Given that, we're willing to deal with some of the downsides (though I don't consider them to be dealbreakers obviously).
