DriveTite Cable Railing System
Do you want to fasten a sleek DIY wood cable railing system to your existing posts? Look no further than DriveTite. Simple to use, these kits come in Level and Angle options for wood. Pair them with cable and our install kit, and that’s all you need to tension cable to your wood posts without replacing them.
DriveTite hides the cable wire and components inside the cylindrical covers, for the cleanest possible look. Easy to install, it mounts to the surface of your posts. This is our simplest cable system to install, and requires little to no technical installation skill.
Bring the simplicity of cable railing to your wooden post system with DriveTite.
The cable railing components for wood are crafted from marine-grade 316 stainless steel for lasting beauty and strength. We recommend putting a cable every 3 1/8″, we’ve found that this spacing (when combined with an intermediate post placed every 4 feet), allows for minimal cable deflection, so that you stay within the common 4″ sphere rule for code (more on cable railing code).
If your overall wood post system height is 36″ tall, typically a 10 pack for each post is required (depending on your handrail setup, it might be less). For 39″ systems purchase a 11 pack, and for 42″ systems purchase a 12 pack.
