Step 3. Lay top and bottom rail beside each other long end up. Find center of rails and mark. This is your starting point. Measure out 4-1/2" from center on both sides until you reach the end of the rail. End spacing will vary. Use a square and lightly mark through each line. This is where your baluster connectors will mount.
