Item details

I will update pictures but the top rail will be my new style shown in the first picture. The post is just a long post for in ground shown in the second picture. It doesn't come with hardware or baseplate. You dig a hole and mount it in concrete.

This rail is perfect if you need a little help up one or two steps.
Designed for use with a step having about a 7 inch rise, but can be used with other sizes too.
The top rail is about 18 inches long and has bend for added usability.
The level part of the rail is designed to set about 3 feet off the step surface.
The post is 1 x 1 inch steel tube at a length of about 57 inches.

Installation: Most customers use this in the ground next to their steps. You'll need to dig at least 18 inches and put in a good amount of concrete 100+ pounds. Remember all the support depends on one hole. In some situations you might trim the post to suit the situation. For a more professional look this can be mounted directly into a step or sidewalk through the use of a core drill. In such a case you will need to trim the post and use a good anchoring cement in a hole about 5 inches deep.

Needless to say this rail is very stout and has only one welded point. There is nothing to assemble! The rail is one solid piece weighing in at 15 pounds!

Paint: We now offer three finish colors: black, white, and hammered bronze. I cannot guarantee that this won't scratch in shipment. You might need to do touch up on location.

Old style curl: If you are a returning customer and need to match the order style please include that in the comments at check out.

Shipping: Once ordered, your rail will be shipped in 3-5 business days. I reserve the right to choose either FedEx or USPS at the time of shipping regardless of what was chosen at checkout. Transit times are usually the same--I only us the Parcel Select option in rare cases where it offers a steep discount.

    Average review
    We received the handrail on time. It is very sturdy and looks very nice. We buried it in concrete next to the step. I give it four stars because we had to modify the bottom of the rail to get it to stay in the concrete. We put bolts through each side so the concrete had something to hold down. It just pulled out without those.

    Great railing, perfect for our 1 step porch. Very heavy duty, thick paint, and very well packaged for shipping. I highly recommend handrails from MetalHandRails.

    This product is sturdy and well made. Hand rail was simple to install. The communication I had with this seller was above average. I had a few inches added to the length and it worked perfectly. I ordered this item on Sunday and it was here Friday - that is impressive. I would recommend this seller to anyone who wants an awesome hand rail and exceptional service. A+
