You are about to look at a lot of pictures. Well if you are interested in railings. We have had a small railing for our lower set of stairs for about 2-3 years. We haven't put it up yet because the studs in the wall are in bad spots to put brackets. So I set out to home depot and found these toggles. Not just an regular toggle, this toggle installs a tad different and 1 holds up to 238lbs! Hello! there would have to be some major handrail sliding or leaning to get through that. Brandon was skeptical as usual, so while he was working, I just did it. Like Nike.
Here are my steps.
|Find out where you want handrail, mark nail holes in bracket|
|each kit comes with 2, that means it holds 478lbs! I used two in each bracket.|
|Drill 2 holes for the toggle|
|following instructions on the pkg, I inserted the toggles|
|see the little tab on each toggle? you are to slide tight against the wall. Left one is done.|
|snap off extra end pieces|
|Done with the toggles|
|screw in the bracket with the screws provided with the toggler kit|
|since I used 2 toggle screws, I used the black screw provided with the bracket for the last hole.|
|Done both brackets|
|Another piece to the bracket to attach the railing|
|This was a HARD step when you only have two hands, but I screwed in the bracket pieces to the handrail.|
|Issue with the toggle screws... they are silver, bracket is black...|
|So I coloured it with a sharpie marker|
