How to Install Feeney Cable Railing?

With your deck posts mounted in position, use a tape measure to space and mark your cable run openings up your post.

On those measurements, use the appropriate Drill Bits for your cable hardware opening and cable size to drill a hole through the deck post.

Then run your cable through all of the openings in your run as your attached Threaded Terminal end sits at your initial hole. Once you have reached the end of your Feeney Cable run, apply the Quick-Connect fitting and stainless steel Snug-Grip® washer to tighten and complete the run.

How to Install Feeney Cable Railing Around Corners?

To install Feeney CableRail along corners or turns on the deck railing design, there are two installation options:

  • Double-post the corners: This will allow the 90° angle to be divided into essentially (2) easier 45° angles which is easier for the tensioned cable.
  • End One Cable Run, and Off-Set Another: With one deck post in the corner of the railing layout, finish the cable runs of one railing section at the post. Then, create a new Feeney Cable Railing section run by starting the cable lines in the openings between the first cable lines.
