If your Cable Railing project has a non-standard layout that isn't compatible with regular KeyLink posts, the KeyLink Blank Post is available to be adapted to your needs. It features the same 1/8" thick aluminum walls and 3/8" welded base plate as other KeyLink posts, and is ready to be drilled according to your level or stair needs.

Combine the 48" blank post with the Fitting Upgrade Kit (sold separately) to get the compatible bit and fittings needed to convert the blank post into a cable-ready line post. This is great for extra protection in coastal environments or for installing a 45 degree angle.

Purchase the 48" blank post with tensioner fittings (11 or 13) to make a custom version of KeyLink's End Post with Tensioner Fittings. This option is great for ramps, non-standard stair angles, or non-standard cable spacing. The height of the blank post can be easily adjusted with a miter saw equipped with a carbide blade.

KeyLink Cable Release Tool
Don't forget to order a Release Tool
Your installation could be delayed if you are unable to disconnect a cable from its fitting! We strongly recommend adding a Release Tool to every KeyLink order!
