The DriveTite 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.*
This version of the DriveTite kit requires the DriveTite Tool Kit (VR440), specifically for our Modified Pliers in order to compress the Cable Wedge inside the Barrel Fitting.
1 – Tensioning Screw (VR364)
1 – Barrel Fitting (VR360)
1 – Cable Wedge (VR363)
1 – Wood Angle Insert (VR336)
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″ as we’ve found that this spacing (when combined with an intermediate post placed every 4 feet), allows for minimal cable deflection, ensuring that you stay within the common 4″ sphere rule for code compliance. 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, a Wood Level Tension Kit, or a Wood Angle Tension Kit (for starting or ending on a staircase). We highly recommend using our DriveTite Installation Kit (VR440) to install this product.
