Cable Bullet spacer bars are a modern, slimmed-down alternative to larger intermediate cable support posts or pickets. While they offer no load-bearing structural support, they are designed to minimize cable deflection by maintaining cable spacing to adjacent cables. Their sleek 1/4-inch profile, stainless steel construction, and patent-pending design allow them to blend in nicely with your cables while maintaining a clean, open view.
Spacer bars are pre-drilled every 3 inches and are available in 8 to 13-hole configurations, each featuring two attachment options; floating or fixed. Open up your view and minimize cable deflection by installing spacer bars anywhere your cable runs span more than 4 ft between support posts. Designed for use with 5/32" diameter cable.
Installing your floating Cable Bullet spacer bars is a simple, straight-forward process. Because they attach to the cables only, and not your deck or top rail, they require no advanced preparation. However, all spacer bars must be installed with your tensioners before your cable runs have been completed. They cannot be added to a railing after the project has been completed.
Spacer bars must be installed before crimping the second end of your cables. A crimped cable end will not fit through the pre-drilled holes in a spacer bar.

*Overall height of the spacer bar only.
**Height of the spacer bar with the standoff. This measurement does not include the two threaded ends of the standoff that attach to the spacer bar and top rail.
***To determine your infill, measure the height from the floor (or bottom rail) to the underside of your top rail.
The maximum infill height recommendation is based on the 3-inch spacing between cable runs to allow for cable deflection and accommodate stricter interpretations of the International Residential Code (IRC).
Cable spacer bars are able to capture each cable and tie them together, adding rigidity to the railing as a whole and controlling the movement of any individual cable independently of the others.
To guarantee strength and durability, each spacer bar is machined in the USA using only type 316 marine-grade stainless steel. This makes them a beautiful and durable option in any project setting; indoor or outdoor, inland or coastal.
