Product Description

Lead-Free

Straight Aluminum Shoe, 1/2″ sq. opening, with set screw.

Shoes are designed to hide the installation point of Iron Balusters. Most balusters are square and are put inside a round hole, while Epoxy actually holds the baluster in place. This product is designed to cover the installation of the square bar, going into a round hole.

Shoes provide no structural support; they are for aesthetic purposes only.

Our Shoes come with a set screw so you can fasten them to either the top or bottom of the Iron Baluster.

    What is the outside dimensions of the shoe? (1 1/2″ square?) Will it fit on a 2x on edge?

    DO THIS COME AS A SET? I NEED 40 BALUSTERS, DO I NEED 40 OR 80 SHOES?

    Hi Nancy,
    These come as individual items. So if you need 40 balusters you’d need to get 80 total shoes (possibly some flat and some angle depending on your specific application).

    Are the shoes needed and do they fit on the Aalto double bar? Could you provide a picture of the shoes on the double bar?

    Hi Mike,

    While the aluminum shoes serve not structural purpose, you’ll likely want them to cover the holes you’ll drill. Take a look at our Iron Baluster Installation Guide for more information.

    I customized a railing with 9/16 and 5/8’ posts. Are both of these shoes the exact same height?

    That is correct – both the 16.3.19 Flat Aluminum Shoe and the 16.3.20 Flat Aluminum shoe have a 1″ overall height.
