    Center Posts

    Center Posts for Gallery Rail are used to support rail at regular intervals. Rail passes all the way through post. Placement of posts is subjective.  Brass Rail may sag if a longer distance, than the recommended 6” – 12” spacing between posts, is used.

    Gallery Posts are raw unfinished - solid brass. See link above for additional information. They can be polished to a shiny glow or left to age naturally. 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.

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

    Install: 3 attachment methods for Railing Posts

    Machine-Screw Attachment Method for wood and stone

    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.

    Install Gallery Rail 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 for wood, stone and tempered glass

    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.

    Brass Cap install for Gallery Posts
    • 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 for wood 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.

    Adapter screw install for Gallery Rail Posts
    • 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.

    Install all posts and 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.

    Great product

    We bought the brass gallery rail to go on a shelf. It turned out great and was easy to install following the guidance in the website. Quality pieces.

    Nice solution

    The combination of the posts and rod provides an authentic visual and functional railing system. I had no trouble installing this on my application, even though I chose the stud post method. The quality of the rod and the posts is just what I'd hoped it would be, very nice quality.

    This railing gave a beautiful finishing touch to a shelf we added to the top of our banquette seating.
