Setting the posts can be a bit of a challenge. We ended up needing spacers because they didn’t clear the sides of our wood treads. Ultimately the look great and we are happy with the purchase.

Installation went quickly and opened up the stairs at the bottom of a very small landing. We love the updated look it gave to our home. We are only giving this a 4 for the same reason as another review, since you can’t move or adjust the spacing of the rails. You are able to remove the extra rail mounts that are unused, so that helps, but there are small holes left open. I would suggest buying the drilling guide for the end caps, because getting the caps aligned can be tricky.

    We installed this on a stairway and landing and love the modern look. Check the product specs carefully as some contain multiple pieces and we over-ordered for our project. It was not a problem, though, as Home Depot accepted returns on the overage. It would be a five star rating if the lower rail fittings were moveable or removable so that you could reset the spacing. We didn't want seven rails so we just didn't fill four of the attachments. It can also be a little challenging to make sure the heights match up going down each side of a stairway. Prova has a website that gives a little more information about the products.
