The Stainless Steel Oval Washer is used in angled wood or vinyl post cable railing applications. The Oval Washer is placed on the Tension Receiver after an Angle Washer, providing a sturdy surface to support tensioning as well as displacing pressure over a larger area.
This displacement prevents the Angle Washer from digging into posts made from softer woods. The oval shape is necessary to allow the Tension Receiver to pass through the washer at an angle. These marine-grade 316 stainless steel washers will stand up to harsh environment for years of dependable service. The Stainless Steel Oval Washer (VR342) can be found in the Wood Angle Tension Kit (VR299).
