The railing and gate arrived in decent, though not perfect condition---a few ends needs some "manipulation" to fit together. But all the parts and pieces were there. The assembly is probably more a function of the installer than the materials---and obviously this system allows for a fairly customized final installation. I was fortunate to have a knowledgeable Home Depot employee verify the part list and everything went together well for my project. I've received many complements, and most importantly my dogs now stay in the yard!!

      Labor intensive system
      The peak railing system is sold ala cart and is very confusing and costly. Inventory of all the parts are not at one store. There are numerous railing systems on the market that are easier to assemble and purchase. Yes i do this for a living

      Hi Hunter, we're sorry to hear you had a hard time sourcing the parts you needed. We recommend using our railing designer either through the Home Depot website or through www.peakproducts.com. This system ensures you will get everything you need in one order. We would be happy to walk through this system with you as it can save quite a bit of time for you. Thank you Hunter, we'll look forward to hearing from you.

          The rails come together very nicely. If any issues, just refer to the online videos. We get tons of compliments on our deck railing.

                  When contractor opened box, there are only 2 metal rails, no connectors or other materials to install railing. The whole railing was advertised,that is what I thought I was getting. Misleading advertisement and will be returning it.

                  Hi there, we're sorry to hear that this product didn't meet your expectation. Each of the 6' Stair Hand & Base Rail Kits come with 1 hand rail, 1 base rail, 1 base rail support, 2 top rail brackets and 2 bottom rail brackets. The posts and picket infill are each sold as separate components to allow for maximum flexibility when planning. If your Stair Hand & Base Rail Kit was missing the brackets that would attach to the stair posts we would be more than happy to fix this for you. Please contact our customer service department at your convenience at 877-883-7325 or via email at cservice@peakproducts.com. Thank you!

                            The instructional guides do not tell you what to do if you have problems. About half of the spacers do not glide easily and have to be inched along the rail. When the first 6 foot section was complete it was too high to fit into the mid post. There was no information on what to do. I wrote an email to the company and got no response. It is very frustrating to work with.

                                Great product, easy to install. I installed this on concrete and used 3 1/4" tapcon masonry/concrete screws and the post are very secure. Note that not all Home Depot carry this product.

                                                    I wanted to create a bannister off of a back porch and needed free-standing posts to support the ends - one where I could both thru and the other where I needed to bolt into a wooden step. The posts were longer than I needed, but easy to shorten with my miter saw with right blade, and some SST bolts, washers and nuts plus the lag bolts that came with the posts resulted in very sturdy installed posts.

                                                      Awesome Product
                                                      We purchased this with the 42 inch panels originally for our deck, and liked it so much we had a wrought iron railing in our living room that was open to the the downstairs, it was only about 30 inches high and anyone could have gone over it, So we removed that and put this in. It says you can you use a hacksaw we used a compound miter saw with an blade specific for non ferrous metals. This gave clean cuts which we needed since we wanted the panels closer than the 4 inches that they allow. To get the panels in without disaster it did take two people. It could possibly be done by one, but I wouldn't recommend it. One tip try sliding the gaskets in the railing by themselves to see which way slides the easiest or you could take a file and smooth the edges just a little. I would definitely use this product again. This is not for a beginner DIY. There are lots of videos and the company is very helpful with the designing and helping with a parts list. Take your time and enjoy the project.
