Woodworking Experience:
We are replacing an old metal railing in our cabin with wood posts and sawn balusters. The sort of project where you figure it out as you go along. We secured the five posts with U shaped brackets. It was all lined up and square... and really jiggly. We were excited to find these, with so many great reviews. My husband took the whole thing apart today and rebuilt it with these new brackets. It’s solid! I wish we had them from the start!

Safe & Secure
I have used this system before and find that it is simple to use and improves the stability and security of the post without using an overwhelming amount of nails and screws. Clean and professional look. Be carefully when purchasing in the big box stores or on line, I have found other makes that use a stamped metal bracket instead of the solid aluminum bracket that comes in this kit.

Good fix to the wobbly problem.
Works great as long as you can drill straight down to secure the bracket.

Great product
I use these on every 3" or 3 1/2" oak post that I mount. They are quick and very strong.

mostly good
Bracket kit is good except for the screws. I replaced the supplied screws. Bracket is quite sturdy and holds newel post solidly, much better than I expected.

best style for our needs

Brad C on Nov 25, 2017
seems to fit my needs and from the reviews I believe this is what I need.
pat on Oct 19, 2017
The sizing listed should be compatible with a 4x4 deck post used for an indoor job. Most of these at the "big box stores" fit either 3 or 5 inch, so these should be a perfect fit.
Brandon R on Oct 6, 2017
3-1/2" width matched the width of our railing post

Looked like it might work for what I need

I needed to brace a loose newel post and I used this kit as part of the strategy to brace the post. I was very pleased with how it turned out both aesthetically and functionally.

What are the actual dimensions of the metal bracket?
Evan W on Apr 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The metal brackets are about 1"x3" or 31/2" I don't remember exactly what size we bought but they worked nicely. You get the size to fit your newel post.
do you carry the 5" kits?
marty on Aug 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, we do not
I have a 5.5" newel posts that I need to cover with trim like this. Is the trim already cut or is it one long piece that you cut to whatever length you want even if I have to buy two to cover one post?
saima h on Dec 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The kit I bought was pre-cut (4 pieces) for a 3 1/2" post. My post was slightly smaller - measuring 3 1/4" - so I had to cut them down to fit. -- Ron
Will this work on a 3" post? The description says 3 1/2 inches.
Jodi M on Jan 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not directly out of the box. It is a perfect fit for a 3 1/2" post, but you would have to have the tools and the skill to cut the wood AND the metal anchor brackets down to the size required to fit a 3" post. The wooden molding would be relatively easy with a good miter saw, but I don't remember the brackets in detail, so cutting them down might be a bigger challenge.
Do you still need to use a newel post fastener kit such as the sure-tite fastener kit?
Rob H on Nov 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don’t think so. I think the brackets that come with this trim kit replaced the fastener kit.
Is the molding stainable?
pat on Oct 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I stained mine and it came out perfect. It stained exactly the same as the rest of the banister.
do you sell the wood trim in a longer length that I could cut myself I have a larger newel post?
dave s on Jul 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we do not, sorry
Is there a way i can get just a part of the trim kit? I have a half newel but don't feel it's right to buy the whole kit for just one piece.
Nick P on Jun 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I used the whole kit on my newel post and it worked out just fine. I suppose you could use just part of it ok.
do you sell a metal bracket like the one on the Newel Post L bracket? Your P/N 36792
Fred B on May 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I bought this to sturdy the top post of my staircase. It worked fairly well. The trim covered it perfectly. Super easy to install if you bought the correct size and if you can drill straight down about an inch out around the post.
my newels are 3" square. do you carry fastener kits for 3" posts?
Rich E on May 31, 2019
Can you use it to fasten to brick?
Vinnie on Jan 31, 2019
Can I just buy the trim for 3.5 inch inside newel post; without the brackets?
