Frequently Asked Questions

  • What size Drill Bits should I use?
Drill Bit Size for 1/8″ Cable through posts
Use the next size drill bit you have above 1/8″. Be really careful and consider using a template and drilling in from both sides of your posts to meet in the middle as the grain of the wood can cause varying exit holes.
Pilot Hole for Lag Screw Terminals & Tensioners
All our Lag Screws are 1/4″. The purpose of pre-drilling is primarily to ensure that your hardware is lined up and straight. It also makes installing much easier. A 1/8″ drill be has worked well during our installs.
  • What is the suggested distance between railing posts?

4′ Feet.

  • How far apart should i space my cables?

We normally recommend 3-3.5″ – Code in most areas require 4″ or less between cables with deflection. (Be sure to double-check what your local code is).
