To install your 4991 Primed Recessed Panel Box Newel, you will need the Box Newel Mounting Kit. Follow our Installation Video to ensure a secure fit. The Primed Recessed Panel Box Newel may be installed either on the surface of the stair tread or beside the tread. Due to their precise edges, we have found that Box Newels look best on a square starting step.
Join handrail to your 4991 Primed Recessed Panel Box Newel using a rail bolt kit. Many configurations allow handrail to mount directly into the newel; however, if your handrail is joining with your box newel on a rake, you may also require a gooseneck handrail attachment.
The cap for this box newel is sent unattached to the newel body, allowing easy access for mounting handrail. Then, after handrails are attached, the cap can be secured on-site by applying a bit of wood glue and finishing nails for increased strength.
Splitting Box Newels
In order to maintain a consistent appearance when handrail must terminate into a wall, we offer Split Box Newels. Attach the partial newel to the wall, and your handrail can be secured like normal. If you would like your Primed Recessed Panel Box Newel split in half, please select “Split in Half” in the dropdown menu above.
