One of the most innovative ways to add storage, shelving, or decorations without any damage to your rails is the Hold It Mate system. These rails attach directly to your vertical balusters to add utility without taking up floor space or damaging your railing. Perfect for creating limitless ways you can utilize your deck without committing to a location, damaging your railing, or stealing floor space. Check out the creative options you can add with Hold It Mate: blossoming planter boxes, bird feeders, drink shelves, round planters, lanterns, grilling tables, hanging flower baskets, water bowls for pets, storage boxes, decorative signs, tool hooks, and more.
Hold It Mate accessories are easy to install. Simply position the Hold It Mate Mounting Rail at the height you desire on your installed vertical balusters. Twist the back rails so they are horizontal against the balusters, and then tighten the through-bolt with the included Allen wrench. From there you can snap accessories onto either side of the rail to make your railing space work for you.
A wonderful option for anyone wanting to add a stable flat-surface to their deck without the hassle of drilling and cutting, the Deckorators Deck Rail Table. Great to use as an outdoor work-table, or simply as a way to enjoy brunch outside with friends, this table can support up to 50 lbs for a secure space. Don't want the table up every day? Simply uninstall, and store until the next time it's needed.
To install the Deckorators Deck Rail Table, start by resting the elbow over the top rail of your railing section and then position the clamp against the balusters perpendicularly. Tighten the hand knob until firmly in place. Repeat for the second elbow. Lift the table and slide it into the open slots on the elbows, tighten the thumb-screw on the bottom of the elbows to secure the table in place.
