Rod for Brass Railing

Install: 2 attachment methods for Center 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. Machine screws included.

  • Drill hole through wood surface, insert screws from underneath of surface, through hole and thread into bottom of post.

Adapter-Screw Attachment Method:

Special adapter screws are used when attaching post from top. Adapter Screws are sold separately.

Post screws down from top onto wood surface. This installation method can be more difficult, requiring extra manipulation of rod and post head when inserting rod.

  • 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.
