Answer This Question

A:  Hi TomFromMo, thank you for this question. We do recommend this joinery system for this profile of rail. We are not the suppliers of that particular handrail you're interested in purchasing, so we haven't tested our Spring Bolt with that profile. That said, it appears that it should work. Just to be sure, we recommend that you test the Spring Bolt on two scraps of rail first, just to be sure, before you attempt to use this on any rail application. If you have additional questions, we'll respond as quickly as we can. Thank you!

    Q:Is this appropriate for a 90-degree 6010 to 6010 hand rail connection? If not, which is? I see ...

    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes. I used two 6010 - 90 degree railings to make a jog at the bottom of the stairs as it widened into the basement. That required three spring connections. I had to do it twice. During the assemble on the wall brackets the joints came apart even after using glue and letting it dry. The second time I used my Dremel to rough-up the rail joint and provide more surface area on the oak railing. This worked and the second time was easy. The railing has been in place for three years and the joint is used as a pivot point for 11 and 13 year old friends when they spend the weekend. The springs work well if you use a high quality wood glue and a Dremel. My observation is that the spring holds the joint until the glue dries. I do not know the part number but the one in the picture looks good. Note that the spring connection is only for the railing joint-to-joint not for other connections. I used a lag screw that was counter sunk and angled up from the bottom of the rail into the Newel Post in the basement. At the sheet rock wall joint at the top of the stairs I did use the 90 degree railing joint but used an oak rosette that was wood screwed to the railing then the rosette was screwed to the wall stud and a wood plug covered the hole in the rosette. Again good glue and a Dremel. Note that rails require a lot of time and patience. I did a 6010 with two 90's on a church ADA ramp. It was 50 ft long, both sides of the ramp and also took two times. The first time I had clamped it to the wall brackets for final alignment and bumped it. Down it went and came apart at three spring joints. It was two much of a fall and I did not let the glue dry overnight. After light sanding and three coats of spare varnish my good buddy said both jobs look like they belong in a museum.

        Q:Will this work on a 22.5 degree mitre ? I need a 45 degree turn not a 90

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Handyman. The short answer is "yes it will." The long answer "yes it will, as long as you can rotate one of the pieces you're trying to connect." For example, if you're trying to connect a newel post to the rail, it may be impossible to rotate a long piece of rail. However, the newel can be rotated...as long as you have the room to rotate it. If you're trying to join two sections of rail, it may be necessary to create your own custom rail fitting. For instance, cutting two pieces of rail 12in. long, making your miter, joining those two pieces, then joining each end of the fitting with 90-deg cuts.

          A:  Hi KP, the Spring Bolt that we recommend for joining handrails to fittings is Home Depot SKU# 622599. Your local store should carry these, but if not, you can always order online. The other Spring Bolt products are ideal for joining fittings to newel posts, and are a tad "beefier" than this Rail to Rail Spring Bolt. They will work fine for joining rail to fittings, the difference being the larger holes that are drilled to accommodate the bolts. If you have additional questions, we'll be happy to help you! Thank you.

            A:  This should work, try it out first on some scrap wood to be sure. But yes railing to return end no problem.

            I used both rail bolts and spring bolts on a recent handrail installation. For joining sections of level rail at angled joints, I preferred the ease & clamping power of these hidden spring bolts. Very straightforward installation, with the ability to fine-tune the final glue-up location.

            Use Spring Bolt fastening kit to join banister to post or to other banister end. Amazing method to join banister ends.
            Amazing hardware to join two banister pieces. Drill the required hole in each end of the banister, screw in the spring as directed, fill with epoxy and insert the steel rod, twist the springs together for an amazingly tight joint. I did this with two banister ends dropping 22 degrees. I cut 11 degrees from each end, did the required drilling, screwing in the spring and rod and epoxy for an incredibly tight joint.

              That's great! The Spring Bolt kits are time-saving, money-saving, and certainly save on headaches that may arise when joining handrails using conventional rail bolt kits. Thank you for your review! SureWood-LNL

              I used this product to install 90 degree end returns on an oak wall railing. For this application I had to cut/shorten the springs and pin with a hacksaw, to reduce their length. For a straight connection this would not be neccesary. The product was not too difficult to install following the instructions. My issue or concern with this product is that it only holds the two pieces together with some spring pressure and therefore relies heavily apon glue or epoxy to make the joint solid. A rail bolt style fastener has MUCH greater clamping force than these spring bolts have. Make sure you use good strong glue.

              Hi Harry, thanks for taking the time to leave a review. The main benefit of the Spring Bolt kit is its ease of assembly and use. You are correct that one needs a thin film of wood glue between the joints to form a permanent bond. Plus, the springs have a margin of error in them allowing you to slide the two pieces together to get a perfect alignment.

              With the Spring Bolts, no special tools such as a rail bolt wrench are required. Plus, once all is said and done, the Spring Bolt joint is just as strong as one assembled with a standard rail bolt kit. We believe the Spring Bolt is the best rail joinery kit for the Do-It-Yourselfer that will produce a professional quality handrail joint every time. SureWood-LNL
