    of INSTALLED BOTTOM BRACKET and mark at

    32.5”. Draw line for placement of Top bracket.

    Place BRACKETS on marks, mark the holes or

    use bracket as template for drilling 13/64” pilot

    holes. Attach all (4) brackets with 2- #14 1”

    Type F screws. Place the BOTTOM RAIL

    adjacent to the 2 post and use speed square to

    transfer cut lines and mark. Double check the

    length at bottom and top of posts with tape

    measure for square. Cut the top and bottom

    railing profiles to size. Assemble the top and

    bottom rail by inserting the baluster into the In

    THE MAX PIVOT STAIRS PIVOT FROM 0 TO 38, FRICTION FIT WORKS FROM RANGE 30 TO 40 DEGREES

    ELIMINATING THE CALCULATION OF RISE AND RUN, FOR YOUR ANGLES ON STAIRS.

    Mark your length of RUN by setting

    BOTTOM RAIL on the nose of the steps and

    clamp to the two posts. Use (2) speed

    squares (see pic) on steps to keep BOTTOM

    RAIL off the steps and allow for clearance of

    flange cover on TOP post installation.

    NOTE: Place Flange cover on post base for

    clearance of bottom rail

    Mark with speed square and cut the profiles

    square, use Chop saw, cut at the marks and

    view your location mark to match how you pre-

    measured the Stair Railing originally, VERY

    IMPORTANT to LINE UP AND PLACE STAIR

    SECTION BACK THE SAME AS ORIGINAL.

    USE YOUR MARKS FOR PLACMENTS

    After clamping Railing section, mark TOP and

    BOTTOM RAILS with pencil, use your POST as

    your straight edge. (Use white mark on dark

    profiles) Clearly label your TOP and Bottom

    Rails for identification when cutting and

    installation. T for TOP, B for Bottom, L and R

    Double check your measurements by placing

    the Upper and lower STAIR BRACKET flush to

    the POST and check the distance for added

    accuracy. IMPORTANT: MARK YOUR RAILING

    FOR PROPER REALIGNMENT & Installation

    Clamp Stair template, (see picture) to

    outside of POSTS, using quick clamp grips,

    when centered and sized so that top and

    bottom BALUSTERS are symmetric and

    plumb to the two posts.

    MARK and CUT: TOP & BOTTOM RAIL OF STAIRS

    TOP of MARKED RAILS (A1 and B1) Measure

    from bottom of angle, 1.25” to the Right.

    BOTTOM of MARKED RAILS (A2 and B2)

    Measure from top of angle, 1.25” to Left.

  • After placing the assembled stair section

    between the two posts, MARK your TOP and

    BOTTOM BACKER plates.

    Now make location MARKS on STAIR BACKER

    PLATES. NOW, mark/outline the BACKER PLATE

    position with the 4 BACKER PLATES. This is

    important, as you will install the BACKER PLATES

    to the POST with #14 TEK Screws, after removing

    the stair section.

    Drop TOP and BOTTOM Rail into position on the

    installed BACKER PLATES. Set #14 TEK Screw on

    TOP RAIL at the BOTTOM of the Stair Run. This will

    allow the TOP RAIL to PIVOT, UP and DOWN for

    Baluster placement. (see Pics).

    Remove stair section in whole and remove all 4 stair

    brackets. Separate the RAILING CUPS from the

    BACKER PLATES (remove #14 set screws) Now install

    the 4 BACKER PLATES and attach to the previous

    marked position on the POSTS. Secure all (4) Stair

    RAIL CUPS to the top and bottom rails. USE #14 TEK

    screws.

    When all Baluster are in position between

    the POSTS. Secure last of #14 TEK Screws

    into the Stair Brackets.
