    Brass Railing Rod


    ** See bottom of page for install information.**


    Modern Center Railing Post are used to complete a brass rail. Their simple straight forward appearance blends with contemporary, mid-century and rustic styles. Install posts at regular intervals to support brass rod. Rod passes all the way through post. Brass Rail may sag if a longer distance, than the recommended 6” – 12” spacing between posts, is used.

    These modern style posts are raw unfinished - solid brass. See link above for additional information. These posts can be polished and lacquered for a long lasting shine or left to age naturally. If preferred, the brass can be colored using various procedures. Although we do-not offer this option, if you search online there are various brass coloring techniques and solutions available.

    Check attachment method to be sure it will work with your design.

    Install: 3 attachment methods for Railing Posts

    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.

    Attach modern post with machine screw
    • Drill hole through wood surface, insert screws from underneath of surface, through hole and thread into bottom of post.
    • The gallery rail can be used on stone such as marble or granite provided holes are predrilled at post locations. Machine screws are inserted from under-side of stone, through hole and into base of post.
    • If preferred: Brass Ball Head Screws or Brass Thumb Screws can be used, in place of standard machine screws, to attach posts. Use when screw head is visible. Sold separately.

    Cap-Nut Attachment Method

    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.

    Install modern post with threaded rod and cap
    • 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:

    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.

    Attach modern post with adapter screw
    • 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.
    • First attach all posts and rods which can easily be installed.
    • 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.
