The Wood Level Tension Kit contains everything you need to tension one end of a run of cable.*
1 – Tension Receiver
1 – Threaded Crimp Fitting
1 – Wood Insert Sleeve
1 – Stainless Steel Washer
These components are crafted from marine-grade 316 stainless steel for lasting beauty and strength. We recommend putting a cable every 3 1/8″, we’ve found that this spacing (when combined with an intermediate post placed every 4 feet), allows for minimal cable deflection, so that you stay within the common 4″ sphere rule for code. 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 Wood Level Tension Kit, a Wood Angle Tension Kit (for starting or ending on a staircase), or a DriveTite Kit. We highly recommend using our Cable Rail Installation Tool Kit to install this product.
