Sometimes a space just needs a little sprucing. If you’re looking to update your railing without the hassle of a top-to-bottom rebuild, DriveTite is the ideal solution. Our proprietary DriveTite system hides cable wiring and all fastening components within sleek, stainless steel covers that drill seamlessly into new or existing wood posts. Plus, DriveTite is easier to install than a traditional railing system – all you need is a cable railing installation kit and a power drill. Pair DriveTite with any of our wood or metal handrails and you have a clean, modern railing installed in no time for a fraction of the cost.


How many DriveTite kits do I need to purchase?
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.
What are DriveTite components made of?
Our DriveTite components are made of 316 stainless steel. This is one of the best stainless steels for corrosion resistance. Such a corrosion resistant material means that our components can withstand the outdoor elements with ease making it perfect for wood cable railing systems.
Do these cable railing components work for any posts?
DriveTite works exclusively with any wood post. You will be able to attach any cable wiring directly to a wood post and give it a sleek look!
What tools do I need to install wood cable railing?
For the DriveTite Cable Kits you’ll need a DriveTite installation kit and 5/32 cable railing wire. You can learn how to install cable railing for wood posts too, if you’re interested.
How should I space my DriveTite cable runs
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).
When do I need an intermediate post?
You’ll need an intermediate post when your post spacing is greater than 4 feet apart. Intermediate posts aren’t post substitutes, but can help maintain tension across sections between 4 ft. and 8 ft.
