Start Deck-orating with Hold It Mate Rails

One of the major perks of working at DecksDirect is checking out the latest deck developments. Every year new products are introduced, and once in a while, a product comes out and completely blows us out of the water! One of the coolest new innovations this year is also remarkably simple, the Hold It Mate Rail system. Add planter boxes and flower baskets to your deck without covering the handrail or taking up precious floor space with the Hold It Mate Rail System.

The system contains everything needed for installation and can be mounted in seconds. The Hold It Mate system connects directly to your vertical balusters, allowing you to design a space that fits your deck atmosphere while making the most of your unused space. Simply position the rail at the height you desire on your balusters, make sure the rails on the back are horizontal against the spindles, and then tighten the through bolt with the included Allen Wrench. Once mounted, snap on the accessories of your choice to put your open space to good use! Accessories can be attached on both sides of the rail to maximize your options.

What’s even cooler? After installing the pieces, hang or set your planters or flower boxes to make the rail virtually vanish behind your gorgeous blooms and plants.

  • 6", 20", and 36" rail lengths available
