Choose From 7 Post Mounting Styles

Standard Surface Mount (w/ Foot Cover)

These are the most commonly used post types, and are needed anytime you are mounting on a level surface, and the post mounting screws are fastened into wood. 4” screws are recommended for most surfaces, but 2.5” screws will work on thick treads. Other mounting hardware can include through-bolts or hollow mounting kits.

Standard Side Mount (a.k.a. Fascia Mount)

Side Mount posts are used to mount to the fascia, or side, of the surface the railing is protecting. These use a 6” x 6” wide plate and are fastened with 6” screws or 4” through bolts. The top of the plate mounts 1 3/8” beneath the surface of the deck, balcony, or stair stringer.

Slim Side Mount

These posts are a sleeker option for mounting to the fascia. The 2” x 6” plate is mounted using 6” lags or 4” through bolts. The top of the plate mounts 1.5” beneath the surface of the deck, balcony, or stair stringer.

What is Proper Post Spacing?
The proper post spacing for a cable railing system is 4 feet of spacing between each post. We cover all the major railing code for custom Cable railing on our cable railing code page.
How Many Posts Will I Need?
Since we recommend a cable post every 4 feet (to meet cable railing code guidelines) the length of your custom cable project will determine how many posts you will need.
How much does Cable Railing Cost?
A whole cable railing system, including posts, handrail, cable, and hardware, costs about $75-$220 per linear foot. The price of cable railing will vary greatly depending on what type of material you use, whether you use wood or metal posts, and the number of corners and runs of cable you need. See our cable railing cost page for more information.
