Installer Friendly design

Designed for simpler installation, side mount railing allows you to set and level the post bracket first. Once the bracket is plumb, simply attach the post column to the bracket!

Easier Installation on Stairs

Avoid cables intersecting with stair treads! Side mount railing can provide more flexible placement options around stairs and angles.
