Answer: 
I purchased four sets Sept 26, 2016 from Home Dept\ot---they do not, I repeat, they do not include the brackets for hanging the rails. You have to purchase the hangers in packages of 4 that currently cost close to $13.

Answer: 
Mine did not. I used different screws and didn't use a bracket on one end and made my own on another (yes, a pain). But I think you could use 3 screws...one each site and bottom and it would be sturdy and you wouldn't notice it. You probably would need to use your own screws.

This kit does NOT come with the black hanging brackets as picture. Was told by home depot customer service that all hardware was included. After getting home we found these stair rails do NOT have the black hanging brackets

Answer: 
If you mean the length on the top and bottom wooden rails, yes. He had to shorten ours by 5 spindles (about 20") because we don't have many steps.
If you mean the height of the spindles - I guess you could cut each aluminum spindle, but there may be a safety regulation on the height.
Hope this helped!

Answer: 
Yes, but be sure to cut the same off each side to maintain an even look. For example; if you need to cut 6" off the railing, cut 3" off each side or else it will look cockeyed.

Can I cut the 6 ft rail in two for two three foot side rails?

We have three boxed-in wooden steps to the garage. The sides are flush with step and riser. Can I just screw the lower rail to the boxed side over lapping sufficiently to screw in the lower rail? This assumes I can cut the rail in half to use each piece for both sides of the step. What about the ends? The top ends of both rails would have to be screwed into the door frame. Can I add a bottom post running flush down the bottom end to the floor?

Answer: 
Yes, but i messed up the measurement and had thought I cut it perfectly in two. Ended up using a wood spacer at the post end. I'm pretty sure one end will has an smaller baluster spacing than the other as it wasn't designed for center cuts. However, mine still looks good and you don't notice the difference.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Rails. Nice concept with wood and aluminum mixed. Real Nice August 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by packaging was crushed but did not appear to hurt anything. bottom rail was drilled off center and holes were inconsistent depths. top hand rail when you attach it per instructions it is VERY loose. it could cause a fall. I added some additional screws to make it more secure. For the COST, $$$$, I expected a better product. I will not make that mistake again. BACK TO LOWES. October 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by looks classy the end result looks great! there were a couple snags in the wood and I would have liked if they would have been sanded, they also had some green streaks in them that couldn't be sanded out, don't know if that was the treatment they give them or from strapping?? We did not have warping as I've see other customers say. Over happy with the product. It probably cut the time to do this job in half vs. making our own. September 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Quality Assurance Bought 4 of these sets to finish off my deck. I opened up the first box and it had 2 upper rails and no lower railing. Thought it was a previously opened packaged till the second one I opened had the same. I purposely drove 20 miles away to pick up in the store to avoid this problem. It was going to take another 3 weeks to have replacement sent, or I could drive back to the store to exchange. I ended up doing my own way of hanging it. Batting .500 in baseball is awesome, but I'm not a baseball player and expect more than what I got. August 23, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Too short I chose these railings for my deck because of how nice they looked. All of the regular railing sections were 6 foot long so I planned to have 6 feet between all the post. Once I got the stair railing in they were 6 feet long but once you put them on the angle for the stairs the gap becomes 7.5 feet so the railing wouldn't fit. When I called the company to see if they made longer sections they did not. so if you are planning to use these railings make sure to plan your post according to the actual length not the description that says they are 6 feet. Your poles on the stairs will have to be shorter July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by loving my new railing My contractor had a relatively easy time installing railing. He did make mistake of cutting the strapping on first set, but from then on, no problems. It looks wonderful on my porch. August 8, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Looked good in pictures The design is good yet the wood quality meant the whole railing was warped and very difficult to align with the 4x4 posts. With a few 3" screws, we were able to correct some of the warp but it is still appearing. August 2, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't come with bracket After having put one together and as an owner of a router myself, I'd only recommend it if you weren't handy. You don't even need a router to make something similar. It's expensive and it doesn't come with brackets. Wood appears to be better quality than most pressure treated 2.x4. July 16, 2016
