DriveTite kits were designed to allow anyone to DIY a cable project with the least amount of work. This is why it is one of our most popular products. Often wood posts or a framed structure already exist within a house or on a deck. DriveTite was created to use these structures. Days that would have been spent in demolition, refinishing, or the installation of metal posts can now be significantly shortened by fastening into the wood structure with DriveTite.
The DriveTite Kit contains everything you need to be able to tension cable into a wood post on a level or angled run. There is a Level Kit and Angled Kit, designed for a very easy, DIY friendly installation. You can utilize pre-existing wood posts, completely new wood posts, or a framed wall.
Each Level Kit (1 pack) includes:
1 – Receiver Screw
1 – Threaded Crimp Fitting
1 – DriveTite Turn Buckle
1 – DriveTite Receiver
1 – Lock Washer
1 – DriveTite Cover
Each Angle Kit (1 pack) includes:
1 – Tensioning Screw
1 – Barrel Fitting
1 – Cable Stop
1 – Surface Cover
These components are crafted from marine-grade 316 stainless steel for lasting beauty and strength. We recommend putting a cable every 3 1/8″. We’ve found that this spacing (when combined with an intermediate post placed every 4 feet) allows you to pass code requirements. If your overall system height is 36″ tall, typically a 10 pack for each post is required, and for 42″ systems purchase a 12 pack.
*You will need to purchase a kit for the other end of your cable. We highly recommend using our Cable Installation Kit to install this product.”
