The DriveTite Kit contains everything you need to be able to tension cable into a wood post on a level or angled run. This system is designed to a very easy, DIY friendly installation. You can utilize pre-existing wood posts, or completely new modern newels.
We recommend you purchase our 5″ long T-30 driver in order to tension the Tensioning Screw more easily than using a standard length T-30 driver.
Each kit includes:
1 – Tensioning Screw (VR364)
1 – Barrel Fitting (VR360)
1 – Cable Stop (VR312)
1 – Wood Angle Insert (VR336)
2 oz – Screw Wax
These components are crafted from marine-grade 316 stainless steel and aluminum 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 for minimal cable deflection, so that you stay within the common 4″ sphere rule for code. If your overall system height is 36″ tall, typically a 10 pack for each post is required (depending on your handrail setup, it might be less). For 39″ systems purchase a 11 pack, and for 42″ systems purchase a 12 pack.
*You will need to purchase a kit for the other end of your cable, either another DriveTite Kit, Wood Level Tension Kit, a Wood Angle Tension Kit (for starting or ending on a staircase). We highly recommend using our Cable Railing Installation Tool Kit (VR400) to install this product.”
