Brass Shelf Rail End Posts provide a finished ending to shelf-rails. Rod inserts post just half-way. Brass Rail may sag if a longer distance, than the recommended 8” – 14” spacing between posts, is used.
Shelf Rail Posts are raw unfinished - solid brass. See link above for additional information. Many customers color the brass to suit their needs. Although we do-not offer this option, if you search online there are various brass coloring techniques and solutions available.
Install: 3 attachment methods for End Post
Machine-Screw Attachment Method
Best and easiest attachment method. Machine screw inserts through hole from underneath mounting surface and screws into bottom of post. Nickel colored machine screws included. Machine screw is slotted for both a flat-tipped or Philips screw driver.
Drill hole through wood surface, insert screws from underneath of surface, through hole and thread into bottom of post.
When using on stone, such as marble or granite, holes must be predrilled at post locations. To mount insert machine screws though hole, from underside of stone, and screw up into base of post.
This installation method provides an old-time appearance. as it displays a Brass Nut on underside of shelf. Use Threaded stem with brass cap nut in place of standard machine screw attachment method. It is sold separately.
Drill hole through wood surface to accommodate a 3/8” diameter threaded stem.
If used on marble, granite, or tempered glass: mounting-holes must be predrilled at post locations.
If post has brass-bushing in base: unscrew bushing and remove.
Insert threaded stem from underneath surface, through hole and thread into bottom of post.
Once installed, brass nut is seen on underside of shelf.
Adapter-Screw Attachment Method:
Screw projects 3/8", from bottom of post, to screw down into top of wood surface.
Cannot be used in conjunction with wall mount posts
Cannot be used on stone surfaces.
This installation method is difficult, requiring extra manipulation of rod and post head when inserting rod. Top mounting will not work if using with wall mount posts. If mounting from top we recommend using Cabinet Railing Posts, as these mount from the top to provide an easier application.
Install all posts.
Cut and insert rods which fit easily.
Tight fitting rods require extra attention: Cut rod slightly short. Slide rod into post. As rod is slightly short, additional clearance will be achieved when rod is slid into post. This added clearance provides space to insert rod into last post. If necessary: top of post can be slightly turned and rod can be gingerly bent to fit into post.
These brass posts are beautiful and quality material. They look stunning on our bar shelf and are my favorite part of my whole basement Reno. Would purchase again
We ordered the brass shelf railing and was impressed with the quality and price. Our application went between two cabinet sides on a fixed shelf so we couldn't install the posts first and slide the rod in from the end. We modified the top of the post by drilling out the tapped threads for the finial. That way we could assemble all the finials and the rod and drop them in the top of the post with a little roo glue. A little extra labor for three shelves, but it works.
Awesome product in a satin brass. We created custom shelving and it looks amazing
