Product Description

Bump Out Slim Side Mount Universal Top 2″ Square Posts provide the cleanest possible look for a cable railing system. Side Mount posts are fascia mounted to preserve the maximum space on your deck, stairs or balcony, and have no exposed mounting plates for a very simple installation. Bump Out Slim Side Mount posts take this idea a step further by allowing you to use Slim Side Mount-style posts on decks that have a slight overhang. This is possible thanks to a 2″ thick plate that is fascia mounted and then mounted to the post. To preserve that slim look, crafted the 2″ plate in such a way that it is hidden by the post. In doing so, we are able to offer you an optimal bump-out system that will give you additional deck space with a sleek design.

The back side of the Bump Out Slim Side Mount and the mounting plate both have 3/8″ holes. The front side of the post has 13/16″ holes that can easily be covered by our “Slim Post Plugs” for a clean look. We also include mounting hardware for two types of applications, one where there are 3, 2×8’s available which is a 3/8″ x 6″ lag bolt. Alternatively, we include an identical plate to the one on the post that can be used with 2, 2×8’s and the included 3/8″ x 4″ bolts, nuts & washers. Whatever the application, we provide the necessary installation hardware.

Our cable railing posts are available in multiple material types (304 Stainless Steel & 316 Stainless Steel), and in multiple finishes (Brushed, Powder Coated Black, White, Silver Spark & Copper Vein). All holes are drilled with 3.125″ spacing, and we recommend putting a post at least every 4 feet to reduce deflection and ensure that you meet code. Guide to getting started with Viewrail.

All “LH” posts are designed to go on the left side of the stairs (when standing at the bottom looking up), and all “RH” posts are designed to go on the right side of the stairs (when standing at the bottom looking up).

* 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 and designed 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.

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 that accommodate the curve. If you have round wood handrail, or are ordering an additional post for your project, please specify your need for a rounded bracket in the notes.
