Product Description

The mission of the DriveTite product line is simple: provide easy installation and a pristine view. DriveTite Surface takes this to an entirely new level.

Using a simple Tensioning Screw, the Barrel Fitting mounts to the surface of nearly any post. This means you can now 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. Best of all, DriveTite Surface doesn’t require a single bore hole. The only drilling necessary is an ⅛” pilot hole. Finish your project off with the sleek Surface Cover, then sit back and enjoy the view.

The DriveTite Surface Kit includes everything needed to tension one end of cable on either an angled or level run. The following components, custom manufactured from premium marine-grade 316 stainless steel, are included in the kit:

1 – Tensioning Screw (VR364)
1 – Barrel Fitting (VR360S)
1 – Cable Wedge (VR362)
1 – Surface Cover (VR341)

Additionally, a tube of silicon is provided for securing the Surface Cover to the post.

We highly recommend using the DriveTite Installation Kit (VR440) to install DriveTite Surface. The DriveTite Installation Kit includes several tools that will ease your installation, including Modified Pliers that compress the Cable Wedge inside the Barrel Fitting.

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.
