Matching Intermediate & End Posts

The deluxe post hole cover, formerly "Dummy Tensioner", is an optional high-end add-on for wood, vinyl, and composite pass-through posts on both level and angled cable runs. Once installed, it's designed to look identical to Cable Bullet tensioners, adding a sense of uniformity between end and intermediate posts. The threaded body securely attaches to the post or sleeve, and the head covers minor splintering, blowout, or discoloration around the cable pass-through hole.

Where cable abrasion may be a concern, the deluxe post hole cover can protect through-holes, particularly on transitional posts that break a straight run. Examples include 2-post corners, 45-degree turns, and stairs transitions.

Deluxe cable post hole covers are suitable for both interior and exterior projects. Each part is machined from type 316 stainless steel and made exclusively in the USA.


Installation

1.) Measure and mark the location of your cable pass-through hole.

2.) Drill a 3/16-inch hole through your intermediate post.

3.) For wood intermediate posts (no post sleeve), follow-up with a 9/16-inch hole to 1/4-inch depth centered on your 3/16" pass-through hole.

4.) Use the hardwood tap to ease installation in hardwood posts only.

5.) Use the Cable Bullet driver and a drill or socket wrench to set the deluxe post hole cover.
