A: The bottom. Then they all get placed loosely in the holes. The top banister should have a slot routed in it along the entire underside that's the same width as the balusters. You should be able to set the set the banister and affix the ends to the posts. Cut the spacers that go in the slot the same width as the space between the balusters at the bottom. Plumb the first baluster and nail the first spacer at the top next to the baluster. Then slide the top of the next baluster against the spacer and bingo. It's plumb. Follow along until done. You only have to plumb the first baluster. And you only have to nail the spacers into the banister between the tops of the balusters.
A: Cuddy - the round part goes on the bottom. If you have anymore questions, please email us at email@example.com.
A: Hi Kim, thank you for the question. Yes, these balusters can be cut to fit the length you need. These particular balusters may have a round "pin" on the bottom that assists with a precise installation. So remember to cut from the "non pin" end, and you should do fine. Thank you!
A: You should try to very lightly sand the primed baluster first, wipe down, then paint.
A: Hi spanged, thanks for the question. We're not painting experts, so it's probably best to consult with the Associates in the Paint Department. That said, these balusters have a gloss primer on them already, so adhesion to that surface may be a challenge. You may want to apply another coat of matte/flat primer to the balusters, especially if you're going with a darker color. Thank you.
