Roger Rock has been in construction for over 45 years. More than 30 of those years have been in the stair & railing business.
The Spring-Bolt Newel & Railing Hardware was invented to eliminate the unattractive look of having to use a LARGE WOOD PLUG to cover railing joint hardware. It was not Roger's main goal but it just so happens that the hardware installs QUICKER (2 minutes) than other hardware and requires just one drill bit and one driver to install. Using our hardware allows a person with moderate level of skill & two tools that are common to all who own even the most basic assortment of tools to install his or her railings that have strong and tight joints.
Assemble the joints dry to check for fit then add glue to the joint to make the joint permanent.
