Product Description


Straight Aluminum Shoe, 9/16″ 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.

    How do you attach the shoes to the treads? Apoxy? Any special kind? Thanks

    The shoes don’t attach to the treads, the shoes attach to the iron baluster via a set screw. The iron is installed using epoxy, we have epoxy that is special formulated to be thicker, and to adhere metal to wood.

    Hi, I am trying to replace the wood balusters with the iron ones. My current wood baluster is 1.75 inch x 1.75 inch square sit flat on the steps. Can you direct me to the right shoe that is big enough to cover so we don’t need to refinish the wood surface?

    Hi Stephanie,

    Our aluminum shoes are a standard 1-3/8″ wide at the base – we do not carry a larger option. However, our blog has some helpful tips on how to prep your staircase for a baluster replacement.
