After I cut down to size, do I need to buy new brackets to install rails?

Asked by Jobuck March 3, 2021
1
Answer

Hi Jobuck. You only need to purchase an additional bracket set if you are cutting this railing into two sections (e.g. 3' and 5'). Search model# eztbpm2hb to locate the brackets. Otherwise, if you are simply trimming down the railing to fit in a smaller opening (e.g. 7'2") the kit contains all necessary components and fasteners. Please visit ezhandrail.com to watch all the assembly videos and view installed photos. Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

Can this railing kit be used on stairs also. I see a photo of it used on a ramp but not stairs.

Answers

Hi SEHSHOWLOW. Yes, this kit is used for the stairs as well. As you mention, you will want to purchase the additional Pivot Brackets (EZPMHB). One bracket kit per railing kit. The installation video can be found at the EZ Handrail website: https://www.ezhandrail.com/videos/#baluster Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

Can the height of this be cut down? I need a section that is 36" tall and a section that is 24" ...

Asked by brian August 12, 2020
1
Answer

Hi Brian. Absolutely and it's super simple. Prior to railing assembly, cut the balusters to the desired length with a 40 or 60 tooth WOOD cutting blade on your chop/miter saw. The balusters that ship with this kit are 30" with an installed panel height of 36". So for your 24" desired height, cut the balusters down to 18". TIP: If you set a stop (clamp large wood block) on the saw table you can cut 20 balusters at a time with a 12" chop saw. Also, always sweep off your cutting table between cuts, the aluminum shavings can cause tiny nicks in the powder coat finish. If you have more specific questions always feel free to email us at support@ezhandrail.com. Thanks for the great question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

Is there a drink rail adapter that will fit these railings?

Asked by Travis January 20, 2020
1
Answer

Hi Travis. Yes, we offer a rectangular top rail (same as the bottom rail: 1.8"w x 1"h) that is substituted in place of the bread loaf style top rail. It allows you to fasten to a any style drink rail (usually matching deck board). I personally recommend dog-earring each end of the drink rail to align with our 3" EZ Posts or any post you may be terminating into on your runs. At this time (1/21/20) the rectangular top rail is not available on homedepot.com. However, it is very easily substituted on any hd.com order (must be within two hours of placing order) by contacting us at support@ezhandrail.com or calling 573.365.7085 with your order number. Alternatively, you may contact us to purchase the top rail adapter through your local HD Pro Desk. We will simply let the desk know which item to order. If you have any further questions or my explanation needs clarity please call or email. Thanks for the great question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

This rail was just what I needed to add a great appearance to my front porch, as well as adding safety. It was easy to assemble except for cutting. I did it with a hacksaw, but aluminum is soft, so it went rather quickly. The width of my rail is 40 inches, so I had to buy a 6 foot rail and cut it down. I would like to see more width options for this style of rail. I am satisfied with this product, and I would purchase it again.

I highly recommend the EZ Handrail system. Shipping was fast and the product arrived in perfect condition. I would recommend to the company to include directions on installing into masonry/brick as part of their standard instructions just like they do for wood and concrete since it requires different hardware. THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS UNPARALLELED!! I called with questions (3 different times) on installation into brick and was immediately forwarded to Dan who spent as much time as I needed explaining exactly what I needed to do. Installed, it is a solid rail and looks fantastic. EZ Handrail makes it a very doable DIY project.

This project is a little more challenging when using this railing as stair rail. If you take your time, I assure you it will come out beautiful. Instructions were straight forward, but took a little skill at cutting each spindle and putting it together. Overall, we love the completed look. We plan on buying more railing to put around our new porch.

An easy but tedious assembly, and installation with fine results
This replacement railing comprises extruded aluminum frame members and an assortment of neatly-packaged fasteners for various wood or masonry installations. Each vertical piece requires 4 screws for assembly, so I think an electric drill with a 1/4" socket attachment is a must. I think it could easily take 2 hours to assemble with just a hand wrench or socket wrench. A 1/4" screwdriver-style nut driver will not have sufficient torque for those without strong hands, as the self-tapping screws must cut into the aluminum. The holes were accurately placed and aligned well for assembly. The sections are easy to shorten with a hacksaw, or even a crosscut wood handsaw, as the aluminum is soft. The installation was easy, and the final appearance was good. My only complaint was that one of the 2 sections I purchased had a significant dent in the top rail that must have occurred in store or warehouse handling prior to my purchase. I opted to massage this out with a hammer and wooden block, with satisfactory results.

I am a 64 year old woman and I can install this without having to hire someone. It is maintenance free due to Aluminum and I get compliments on the railing as it shows off our log cabin! Please do NOT ever discontinue this as it is a winner! I ordered the 8' section because the spacing between my posts is 7.5 feet. I use a Makita saw to cut the aluminum to fit the space. If I can install this and it looks beautiful and maintenance free anyone can!
