Great product. I love the quality and the gauge of the material. They are easy to install, and they give all my projects an added design appeal. One improvement I would suggest concerns the stair rail mounting brackets. They need to be offered in different pitch applications. They work great at the exact pitch, but if the pitch of the rail differs even by the slightest amount, the brackets install skewed, which makes the job look less than perfect. And lastly, the shipping needs to be improved upon. I placed a call prior to ordering online, and was told my order would arrive two days after the 4th of July using the $30 UPS shipping option. Yes, The holiday was taken into account. They didn't arrive however, until the following week on Thursday. No overly happy about spending an additional $30 on a $100 order only to have them arrive late.

Square Baluster Installation: (NOTE - Check local building codes for proper rail installation dimensions)
Step1.Plumb 4x4 or 6x6 posts - Measure distance between posts.
Step 2. Use this application when using Railing Connectors ( recommended - click HERE for railing connectors)
Measure top and bottom rail - deduct 1/2" to accommodate railing connector. (if not using railing connector - do not deduct 1/2") Cut top and bottom rails to size.
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.
Step 4. Insert screw through baluster connector (click HERE for baluster connectors) Screw down each connector where top and bottom rails are marked.
Step 5. Mount bottom railing to posts with attached railing connector. Rest bottom rail on 2 temporary spacer blocks. Insert balusters on to bottom baluster connectors and firmly push down by hand.
Step 6. Start the top rail at an angle and insert connectors into balusters. make sure balusters are fully connected. Push down firmly by hand. Install top railing connectors to posts. You can now install a handrail if desired.
