The Fas-N-Fast Newel Mounting System is perfect for installing our solid wood newel posts, specifically for use with Cable Railing Systems. Each disk is 2″ in diameter with 6 pre-drilled holes. You first drill a 2″ circular hole in the bottom of the newel post at the depth to accept both of the disks. One of the disks is mounted the floor, and the other is mounted inside this hole in the bottom of the newel. The two parts are threaded together until they are secure.
Depending on the hardness of the wood, and location of the post (Tensioning post vs intermediate), you’ll want to select different screws to ensure the system is strong enough for your specific application. You might have to use shorter screws in two of the six holes going into the bottom of the post to ensure the screws don’t interfere with the cable & tensioning systems.
