  • Turn masonry walls & columns into cable rail posts

    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.

  • Installation

    Limits & Structural Requirements

    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.

    Supplies (not included):

    • ¾” Masonry drill bit and drill
    • Structural masonry anchor epoxy
      (must be compatible with 200 pounds constant load and 800-pound impact load)
    • Hole cleaning brush and compressed air for evacuating holes in masonry
    • Clean-up rag

    Installation Process:

    1. Mark your epoxy anchor locations in alignment with your cable railing layout (3” recommended cable spacing)
    2. Drill a 3/4-inch diameter hole to a depth of 2 inches for each epoxy anchor.
    3. Use a hole cleaning brush and compressed air to clear the holes of all dust and debris.
    4. Dry fit each Cable Bullet epoxy anchor to ensure proper depth and alignment with your cable run.
      Note: The Cable Bullet epoxy anchor is fitted with a plastic plug to prevent epoxy from entering the threaded space of the anchor. Do not insert the anchor into the epoxy without the plug. The cap on the plug is used to hold and position the anchor during the installation process. Once the epoxy has cured, the plug may be removed to make room for the cable rail tensioner.
    5. Mix and place the epoxy per the manufacturer's instructions.
    6. Set the epoxy anchor ensuring full, even epoxy contact on all sides. The front metal edge of the anchor should be flush or slightly recessed from the masonry face.
      Note: Epoxy can stain masonry – carefully remove excess epoxy.
    7. Allow the epoxy to cure per the manufacturer's instructions.
      Note: Ensure proper anchor placement throughout the curing process. Anchors may shift out of alignment while the epoxy is soft.
    8. After the epoxy has fully cured, pull and remove the foam insert. This should clear the entire threaded chamber.
    9. Thread Cable Bullet tensioner into the epoxy anchor and follow the instructions for installing metal post tensioners to complete the railing system.

What's included in a kit?

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.

What cable should I use?

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.
