Now you can have a beautiful, professional grade stainless steel cable rail for a fraction of the cost of like systems installed by a steel fabricator.
To get started on your new stainless steel invisible cable rail, you’ll need the following tools;
An electric drill motor, with a three sixteenth inch drill bit for the pilot holes.
A half inch socket with driver.
A level for plumbing the posts.
A tape measure.
A pair of pliers.
A seven sixteenth inch wrench.
Crimpers and cutters.
A caulking gun with a spreading stick.
A rag and some acetone.
First, lay out the parts near the location of their installation.
Begin your installation at any corner, by using the corner fitting to mark the connection location and add one inch to give you the inside edge of the posts location. Next, measure eight inches to the bottom of the post. Drill a three sixteenth inch pilot hole and set the first lag bolt from the post with the level and repeat. Add caulk to the connecting top rail and spread with a stick. Use acetone to clean up any excess. Connect a caulked rail to the post fitting.
Set the next post using the same method. Always remember to use the level to check the plumb of each post that is set. You may use tape to hold the connections in place until the caulking is fully cured. Approximately twenty four hours.
Installing cable connections.
Slip the cable through the corner post and attach a hex nut, exposing about one eighth inch of threads. Then attach an acorn nut. Pull the cable through all the posts. Hold taut with one hand. Snug the cutter tightly to the post, as shown and cut the cable.Slip a fitting on the cable and crimp twice. Attach a hex nut to the fitting, followed by an acorn nut. Tighten all cables, making sure not to over tighten. Finish by snugging the acorn nuts up to the hex nuts on all fittings.
With the installation of your beautiful, invisible cable rail system complete, you can now enjoy an unobstructed view from your deck for many years to come.
