As centers of activity in the home, decks and stairways should have plenty of space. Narrow or confined areas with normal railing may feel crowded and claustrophobic. Side Mount Posts make room for more. More entertaining space. More family space. More life space. Plated, bump-out, and slim mounting options allow these posts to adapt to almost any environment. So if you need more room in your life, there’s a Side Mount Post ready to do the job.
***If you are ordering Rod Railing Posts for an angled run, please make sure that you have precise measurements (within .25 degrees) of that angle before you place your order. Indicate that measurement in the notes section when you are checking out.

Post Configuration Details:
“A-5” – The “A-5″ post is designed to be an intermediate post on level runs. It has level holes drilled on both sides of the post. The rods will simply pass directly through the post, no additional fittings are required.
“B-5” – The “B-5″ post is designed to be an intermediate post on angled stair runs. It has offset* holes drilled on both sides of the post.
“F” – The “F” post is designed to be a starting post on level runs. One side of the post has a hole and the other three sides of the post are completely clean.
“H” – The “H” post is designed to transition from 36″ tall stair section to a 39″ or 42″ level balcony section. It has 10, offset* holes drilled on opposite sides of the posts, in addition, it has one (39″) or two (42″) holes drilled at the top of the high side of the post.
“J” – The “J” (up or down) post is designed to be a start post on angle stair runs. One side of the post has holes drilled into it, the other three sides of the post are completely clean. When choosing “Up” or “Down,” determine whether your run will be continuing upwards or downwards from that post. Then choose the corresponding post configuration.
“S” – The “S” post is shipped without any holes pre-drilled in the post itself (handrail bracket and foot still come pre-drilled). Select this post if you have an application where rods are not necessary but you still want to run handrail, or for a custom application where you want to drill the holes yourself.
* All offset holes are drilled at 40 degrees (the typical angle of a staircase), these 40-degree holes work with angles between 36 – 42 degrees. If your staircase falls outside those angles custom hole drilling can be requested at no additional charge.
Posts are manufactured 1″ shorter than their defined height. This will allow you to be at the exact height with our 1″ tall metal handrail, or slightly over with our 1 5/8″ tall 6000 series handrail.
Mounting feet come with 4 holes (6 holes on “B” posts) for 3/8″ fasteners. The handrail bracket also comes with 6 pre-drilled holes to secure the handrail.
The standard brackets that come with our posts are designed to work with flat bottom handrail, if you order our Round Metal Handrail 2″, we’ll automatically select rounded brackets to work with the handrail. If you have round wood handrail or are ordering an additional post for your project, please specify in the notes if you need a rounded bracket.
