How To Select The Right Post

Key-Link offers several specialized posts based on your railing layout. Here's how to choose the right one:

For 36-inch tall railing:
  • Choose the 38-inch post for level sections
  • Choose the 40-inch post for stair sections

For 42-inch tall railing:
  • Choose the 44-inch post for level sections
  • Choose the 46-inch post for stair sections

Use these pre-drilled posts if your cable will continue straight through the post and into the next railing section. If your cable run will end, turn at an angle, or bend downwards onto stairs, check out this Key-Link Post with fittings
