DriveTite Surface Bundle

Ships in approx: 2 Business Days

Product Description

The DriveTite Surface Bundle contains all the tools and materials you’ll need to install a straight run of cable railing about 30-35 feet in length, using your existing 36″,  39″, or 42″ wooden posts.

The Barrel Fitting mounts to the surface of nearly any post using a Tensioning Screw. This allows you to mount cable railing to solid posts at least 2 1/2″ thick, or to hollow posts with as little as     1 1/2″ of mounting material. DriveTite Surface doesn’t require a single bore hole; the only drilling necessary is a ⅛” pilot hole. Finish your project off with the Surface Cover, then sit back and enjoy the view.

Each bundle includes the number of fittings needed for the number of runs and the handrail height specified. For a single run with a 36″ handrail height, your bundle will include (the 39 and 42 handrail height bundles will contain the extra components needed for the taller post height):

  • 2 x VR296-10 Includes two 10 packs of:
    • 1 Tensioning Screw (VR364)
    • 1 Barrel Fitting (VR360)
    • 1 Cable Wedge (VR363)
    • 1 DriveTite Surface Cover (VR341)
    • 1 Silicone Tube
  • VR440S – DriveTite Installation Kit. Includes:
    • 1 Cable Cutters, (1) Modified Pliers
    • 1 DriveTite 6″ T-30 Bit
    • 1 Bundle of String
    • 1 Tube of Screw Wax
  • VR119-400 – 5/32″ 1×19 316 Stainless Steel Cable Rail. Spool containing 400 linear feet.


We advise putting a cable every 3 1/8″, as we’ve found that this spacing (when combined with a structural wood post placed every 4 feet), allows for minimal cable deflection and keeps you 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 an 11 pack, and for 42″ systems purchase a 12 pack.

Thanks for the question John.

Our “1 Straight Run” bundle for your handrail height should provide enough product for a 10′ section. You should have some cable left over, but the bundle will provide all the fittings you need.
