Structural Support with a Minimal Footprint


The Cable Bullet intermediate post is a sleek, top-mount, structural pass-through post, designed to support both your cables and top rail, with the smallest visual footprint possible.

Intermediate posts are made from solid T6061 tempered aluminum for maximum yield strength. Each post includes pre-drilled cable pass-through holes every 3 inches on center, optimally sized for use with 5/32" diameter cable (max.). The elongated, tapered hole design offers the necessary support on level runs, while still allowing the cable to pass through without kinking along sloped spans.

Combine these posts with Signature series side mount tensioning posts, or add them as infill for custom side mount wood railing. Use cable spacer bars to maximize the view from your deck, patio, or stairway.

Please Note: Side-mount brackets are optimized for use on wood structures only and should not be attached to concrete or stone! Mounting screw holes are tightly spaced to maximize their holding strength in wood. However, in a masonry application, this highly increases the likelihood of damage between adjacent pilot holes, compromising the safety of your railing. Signature series top mount posts are designed for use in most masonry applications.


    What's included with each post?

    Each Signature series intermediate post includes the following components:

    • (1) Post
    • (1) Handrail mounting bracket
    • (4) Post-leveling set screws
    • (2) Screws to mount the column to the mounting bracket

    What tools & supplies will I need to install my posts?

    For detailed installation instructions and setup guides, see the Helpful Guides & Resources list on this page.

    PLEASE NOTE: Aluminum posts and handrail are NOT suitable for use in exterior coastal applications. Signature series railing is designed for inland exterior and interior projects. Exposure to salt will cause accelerated oxidation and galvanic corrosion between aluminum and stainless components.
