      Q:Is this pre-assembled or it is something I will need to assemble
      by|Dec 30, 2021

      Answer This Question

      A:  This stair rail kit ships unassembled, so assembly is required when installing it.

      by|Jan 3, 2022

        A:  This needs to be assembled. Assembly is fairly simple as the posts slide into predrilled holes. However, the bigger issue is if the rails are too long, they will need be cut to the required length prior to assembly.

        by|Dec 31, 2021

          A:  You will need to cut rails to your exact length and then assemble.

          by|Dec 30, 2021

            A:  To answer your question you will need to put it together but don't worry its very easy to put together.

            by|Jan 3, 2022

              A:  You have to assemble it after you cut it to length.

              by|Jan 2, 2022

                A:  You will not need to assemble as it is exactly as shown. Looks beautiful; we waited a year to finish the wood with clear exterior wood finish from Home Depot. You will love it.

                by|Jan 2, 2022

                  A:  You will have to assemble it. 

                  by|Jan 1, 2022

                    A:  It comes as a kit containing the top and bottom rails, the spindles, and hardware that you assemble.

                      Q:Can these be used with a ramp as well as stairs, or does it depend on the slant?
                      by|Nov 24, 2020

                      Answer This Question

                      A:  There is a chance it could be modified, but a handicapped ramp is a very different slope than a stair.

                      by|Nov 29, 2020

                      A:  These stair railings are designed to be used with stairs, not a ramp. They are made with a 34 degree angle. A HP / Wheelchair ramp has an angle between 5 degrees to 7 degrees. IT MAY BE POSSIBLE to use the matching horizontal rail kit & cut a bit off of the top right & bottom left. This would be a trial & error type thing & the railing would not be returnable if you alter it.

                      by|Nov 27, 2020

                      A:  LBH, The railing kit is set at 35 degrees, and this is too steep for a wheelchair ramp.

                        by|Jun 30, 2020

                        A:  Very easy installation. I have used this product before and it makes your completion time a breeze.

                        by|Apr 22, 2021

                          A:  I read the installation guide and it says 33 degrees. But it did not indicate how adjustable that is

                            Good quality easy to install and looks nice
                            Built a 4 step exterior using pre-made, standard dimensioned stringers (10-in tread, 6 1/2-in rise) with 4x4 posts at top and bottom, so my kit's railings needed to be shortened with my miter saw with 34 degree ends. Glad I cautiously cut long because the angle wasn't perfect on my first cuts. This kit went together really well. My aftermarket brackets look terrible but helped position things. The treated wood is very good quality which didn't even need sanding. Looks fantastic. Wife loves it.

                              Looks good but challenging
                              Be advised that the kit assumes that 34 degree angle will work. Baluster holes are drilled to 34 degrees as is the end bevel. If you are doing a run shorter than the 6 foot (mine was only a 3 step stringer) your cutting and fitting will take some careful attention

                                Used it to build railings for my deck. Went together pretty quickly. I bought one six foot section and cut it in half and made two railings for my steps off my deck.

                                The cost was a little much for this setup, .They should.of included the brackets I had to use to mount these . They are maybe worth $70 instead of $90 just my opinion.

                                Unfortunately, the railing kit lacks the particular level of fit and finish that I could offer to my customers after having installed it on my own deck. There was misalignment of the holes by just enough margin to cause an exaggerated bowing once the effect was magnified by the angle of the rails. Also, this system is really only made to fit a particular generic rise/run with a predetermined angle and making a minor adjustment to accommodate more/less risers is pretty challenging if not impossible. The treated top and bottom rails were definitely premium treated however, the way they were packaged and displayed on the shelving caused significant crowning that had to relaxed prior to install. They've been on our deck this summer and have had time to weather and while they look decent from a distance, the fine details just don't quite cut it.

                                2nd time I have used these. They look great ! Key number is 34 degrees. If doing sections of different lengths, cut longest sections first ( if you mess up, use it for a shorter section. ) Take your time, measure twice, cut once.

                                We installed three of them on our new deck.. went well--just remember the magic words 34 Degrees is the key to getting them right. The top rail tended to buck up in center so we pre-drilled and counter sunk a screw in the middle to keep it down. I would recommend!

                                Beautiful Railings
                                We did not have any of the problems described by the other reviews. The pictures I have posted show the color match between these stair railings and the straight rails available in the stores. I do not recommend the Lightning rail though - as the pickets are flat and do not match this railing's profile. The wood matches the straight rails well. We had several problems with delivery, so I do recommend delivering the rails to the store, and verifying the rails at the store before taking them home. For instance, these are stair rails and all of the holes for the pickets are in fact at an angle. We received the straight rail package erroneously at first, which has 90 degree holes - this is wrong. These stair rails are angled and ready for installation. They are difficult to install though and require a handyman. Not for the beginner. Worth the work though. They are beautiful. I posted a photo showing the stair rails set against the coordinating straight rails so that you can see the profiles and colors.
