VR298 - DriveTite Kit (crimped)

DriveTite Interior Kit – VR298

Ships in approx: 1 Business Day

Product Description

The DriveTite Interior Kit contains everything you need to be able to tension one end of a run of cable inside a wood post at either an angle or on a level.*

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.

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.”

Can the DriveTite fittings be used with 1/8″ cable?

2 years 5 months ago

Hi Ray,
Unfortunately no, the fittings are designed to only work with 5/32″ cable. We recommend using out cable since we’ve obviously tested it to ensure that it will work.
Let us know if you have any other questions.

Please explain installation of the DriveTite (CRIMPED) Kit. It obviously is different than the uncrimped, but your video shows only the uncrimped!

Hi Mary,

The Crimped version of DriveTite uses a Cable Stop that is crimped onto the cable rather than the Cable Wedge, which slides over the cable and is compressed into the Barrel Fitting. In general, we suggest getting the uncrimped version unless you’re already doing a lot of crimping for a run of cable with metal posts. Please let us know if there’s anything else we can help you with!

Thanks for the question Robert.

We’ve tested DriveTite in house and it handled up to 1000 pounds.
