The cable rail tensioner kit for masonry posts features our standard machine-threaded cable Cable Bullet for metal posts, with the key addition of an epoxy anchor. The epoxy anchor can be used to add cable railing connection points to any structural masonry, including stone, concrete, brick, or cinder block walls and columns. It is also versatile enough to use anywhere a standard wood or machine thread connection is inconvenient or impossible to achieve.
All Cable Bullet cable rail kits feature the same patented tensioning system and quality craftsmanship.
Cable railing produces significant tension loads. Any anchor structure must be capable of supporting continuous loads of 150-200 pounds per cable rail connection point. Under the combined tension of multiple anchor points, the load can be significant.
It is the installer’s responsibility to ensure adequate structural support.
To download installation instructions for setting epoxy anchors and tensioning the cable, see How to Install Cable Rail Tensioners in Masonry Columns.
Each cable rail tensioner kit includes all the fittings necessary to anchor and tension a single cable end:
(1) T304 Stainless steel epoxy anchor, (1) Cable Bullet for metal posts, (1) crimp sleeve, (1) lobed washer, (1) #10-32 x 1/4" half dog socket set screw.
All Cable Bullet cable railing kits were designed exclusively for use with 5/32" cable. If your project includes sloped or angled rail sections, we highly recommend using 7x7 cable. The additional flexibility of the 7x7 cable braid allows for cleaner lines and tighter angles between staggered posts.
