Tubular Mount Cable Railing Features

Cable Railing With View

Preserve your view: An example of decking fitted with 5/32 inch (4 mm) deck rail. The cable railing gives a stylish finish and provide an unimpaired view from the deck.

Stainless Steel Cable Railing Running Through Tubular Intermediate Posts

You can run cables up to 50 ft passing through any intermediate posts, reducing the number of cables you'll need!

42 Degree Articulation

Ideal solution to allow for shallow angles such as stairs and inclines. The ball and socket design gives articulation of up to 42 degrees.


DIY Installation Advice

Installing Tubular Mount Cable Railing System

Before installation we recommend you consult with your local building department as building code requirements vary by state, county or city.

Plan your project in advance to ensure you have the correct number of posts, cable and fittings, remember to take into consideration end post and corner post termination clearance and position.

Stainless steel cables should be spaced 3 inches apart.

Vertical posts should be spaced at recommended 5 ft intervals (to a maximum of 6 ft 5 in.) to ensure a strong frame.


Measuring the balustrade wire

Measure twice, cut once!

Please be as accurate as possible.

Each cable has an adjustment of plus or minus 0.7 inch (20 mm).

1. Getting Started

Layout your design onto the relevant surface with a pen or chalk prior to drilling any holes.

Layout Your Project

2. Drill Pilot Holes

You will need to drill and tap M6 holes into the posts to accept the socket and screw. ('tap' refers to the method of drilling a hole whilst adding an internal thread. A special drill bit is required to achieve this.)

Drill and Tap M6 Holes

3. Align Socket

Thread a M6 screw through the centre hole of your socket and align to the post, with the socket opening pointing downwards (for a neat and tidy finish).

Align Socket

4. Fix Socket

Using a hex head key, tighten the M6 screw until your socket is securely fastened to the post.

5. Prepare Pre-Fixed Ball End

Starting with the pre-fixed tension ball end, screw out the ball end to reveal approximately 0.7 (20 mm) inch of thread, you will need this to apply your final cable tension once installed.

Prepare Pre-Fixed Ball End

6. Mounting Pre-Fixed Ball End

Place the pre-fixed tension ball end into the mounting hub.

7. Mark Your Cable For Cutting

Pull the cable over to the other fixing post and align to the spanner flat of the DIY compression fitting.

Mark your cable ready for cutting with either a pen or chalk.

Note: The stand off from the mounting hub is 1.18 inch (30 mm).

Mark Your Cable For Cutting

8. Cut Cable

Cut your cable to required length, we recommend using a set of good Cable cutters to give you a neat and tidy cut.

Remember - measure twice, cut once! Please be as accurate as possible.

Each cable will have an adjustment of plus or minus 0.7 inch (20 mm).

9. DIY Compression Fitting

You are now ready to attach the self-assembly end fitting.

The first step is to dismantle your DIY compression fitting - Simply unscrew the nose piece.

10. Thread Nose Piece onto Cable

Taking the blank cable end place the nose piece over the stainless steel cable (ensuring the thread end is towards the end of your cable).

11. Thread Cone onto Cable

Thread the cone onto the cable and push into the threaded cone chamber.

12. Place Ball End onto Cable

Take the stainless steel body and push onto the cable, eventually bringing the three component parts together.

Turn in opposite directions to thread them together.

13. Secure Ball End Fitting

Using 8 mm and 9 mm wrenches (metric), simply screw the two sections together until tight.

14. Mounting Ball End Fitting

Insert the DIY ball end into the fixing hole of the hub.

Note: if you require more slack in your wire to insert the DIY end simply return to the fixed end ball and unscrew to expand to the required length.

15. Tension Cable

Returning to the pre-fixed ball end, simply screw the thread in to achieve the desired cable tension. Once you have achieved this lock the nut into place using a 9 mm wrench (metric).

It is important that the cable is not allowed to be twisted.

Tensioning Sequence

To tension the cables, we recommend starting from the center and working out (see diagram below). Do not fully tighten individual cables as this will create uneven tension throughout your system, just tighten enough to hold in place. Once all your cables are installed, tighten each cable in turn by slight increments to achieve a solid and fully secure finish.
