Key Features

  • Fully customizable: clean posts with no pre-drilled holes or fittings allow you to drill holes at the exact angles you need for unique deck layouts
  • Sturdy 3-1/4-inch posts create a solid, code-compliant foundation for your deck railing
  • Clean, modern look with craftsman details
  • Made of gorgeous, low-maintenance powder-coated aluminum

Kit Includes

  • Blank, undrilled post
  • Leveling plate

Post cap, post base trim and post mounting hardware sold separately.

How To Select The Right Post:

If your deck has non-standard angles, you can drill this blank post to the precise angles you need, fitting Key-Link fittings into the holes you drill. For straight-line runs, gentle angles, or standard 90-degree corners, use these specialized posts instead:

  • If your cable will extend straight through the post and on to the next section of railing (whether it's a level section or an angled stair section), choose the Pre-drilled post
  • If your cable run will end at this post (or if it will make a standard 90 degree turn or a gentle bend of less than 45 degrees), choose the Post with fittings.
