Rated 5 out of 5Â by DIYinUT Great Solution for Going Down Stairs
I used this kit to help with building a railing down my porch steps. The installation of these pieces were a breeze and helped make the planning process without having to worry about getting to technical with the stairs.
the brackets come pre-assembled. to assemble the railings you will want to remove the mounting brackets first and install those to the posts then reassembled the but and bolt as the final assembly.
My only complaints is that because the brackets come pre-assembled the nuts for the bolts are only finger tight. with the bolts being shirt. we were missing 2 of the 4 nuts. luckily the nuts are a common size and easy to find at Homedepot. My other complaint is because the bolts included are about 2 threads too short to full extend through the nut. I think i only got about 1 full rotation on the nut before it was snug against the bracket. I worry that these will become loose and become lost over time. something to keep an eye on.
You may need a second set of hands to install the brackets as these are not screwed or bolted to the top or bottom rail. these just sit. and you will need to guide these into 4 brackets at the same time.

These hinged stair rail end are the way to go for faster attachment of rails on stairways. These are not mandatory, although with these ends your angle cuts can be off an 1/8 in. Plus, the they make the job more professionally finished. Great heavy duty product.
