Q:can these be cut down to fit
by|Jan 26, 2022

Answer This Question

A:  I did not, but they could. I would just make sure to cut each end equally to keep any mid design in the middle.

by|Jan 26, 2022

    A:  Yes, I cut mine and purchased the baluster upper and lower shoe to complete the finished look.

      A:  Hi DEM63, thanks for the question. Your local Home Depot store is set up to cut wood products to specific sizes, but not metal products. You can certainly ask an Associate in the Millwork Dept. if that service is available. These balusters can be cut using common hack saws to power tools with metal cutting blades. If you have additional questions, we will reply as quickly as we can. Thank you!

        Q:I know they aren't rated for outdoors, but if I coat them in a clear poly or something like flex seal to keep the weather out, would that protect them enough to use as a deck railing? I see aluminum rails used outdoors all the time.

        A:  Hi There! Thanks for reaching out. This product is designed for indoor use only.

          A:  We returned these because they didn't work for our interior stairs. They seemed well made & heavy duty. I suppose they could work outdoors with a good protective coating, bit not really certain.

            A:  Have a local auto body shop paint them with IMRON or similar paint the finish will outlast the deck.   Unfortunately IMRON and similar paints are for professionals only due to the specialized tools and training needed to apply them. Another option would be to have them powder or ceramic coated once again a finish which will outlast the deck Unfortunately there are no easy to use DIY paint products which will give you an attractive and long lasting finish

            by|Jan 14, 2022

              A:  You would have to coat them internally, They are steel so they would rust from the inside out.

                Answer This Question

                A:  You can cut both sides so that the basket is in the middle, but you may need to modify the slot on the stair case from circle to square.

                by|Mar 8, 2021

                  A:  Blagos, thanks for this great question. To get the balance you need, the balusters need to be cut so that the decoration is in the middle. For example, if you need to cut your baluster to 28 inches, be sure to leave a little on each so that it can be inserted into your angled wall and/or handrail. Find the centerpoint of the decoration - in this case, it's a basket. Divide your 28 inch measurement by 2 and you get 14 inches. Measure up from the centerpoint of the basket by 14 inches, and make a mark. Then measure down from the centerpoint of the basket, and make a mark. Those are your cut marks. This should leave the ornamentation in the middle of your opening. Again, be sure to leave enough on each end to insert into your angled wall and handrail. If you have additional questions, we'll respond as quickly as we can. Thank you!

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  Hi Bud, great question you're asking. You purchased the basket balusters and you want them to be centered underneath your handrail. Leaving them "as is" would make the baskets off-center, like "too high" in the middle of your balustrade, correct?<p><p>To balance the appearance, it may be required that the baluster be trimmed from both ends, not just the bottom. The trick is to find the center of where the baluster should be once it's installed (ex: center of the single basket). Next, measure the opening underneath your handrail, from the bottom of the handrail to the top of tread or wall, and add 3/8 inch. Divide that measurement by 2. Take that half measurement, and measure up from the center point on the baluster, and make a mark with a pencil, then measure down from the center point on your baluster and make a pencil mark. Cut the baluster at those marks, and you'll end up with two square ends.<p><p>The rubber top cap will still fit on the top of the baluster, though it will be tight. Install the rest of the kit per the instructions. The top cap should be snug and, depending on the type of hole that is there, the hole may have to be made wider. The end result will be a baluster that appears centered under your handrail, and not out-of-balance. If you have additional questions, we'll reply as quickly as we can. Thank you!

                      A:  thank you for answering. Actually the basket would be too low in the space between the handrail and top of knee wall. But the answer you gave would apply anyway. My concern was cutting off the rounded end of the spindle, and if that would hinder installation. You answer tells me it will not be an issue. I will post a pic when I finish. thank you again.

                          Hi MrsMills, we hope your project went well. Please know that these balusters are not rated for exterior use, and will eventually show weathering, rust, and some sort of corrosion. You should check the integrity of these balusters regularly to limit the damage they will incur due to weather, humidity, and fluctuating temperatures. Thank you. SureWood-LNL

                          We replaced our old white wood balusters with the singe basket and double twist and it looks amazing. We replaced a total of 77 balusters. We also stained the handrails and other wood parts with General Finishes Gel Stain(Java) - one coat was all it look to get the color we liked.

                            These were good quality and seemed to have a much better looking and more durable finish than competitive products in similar price range. I replaced 80 white balusters with a mixture of these twisted and basket balusters and it looks so much nicer now.
