the post manually or with the Install Guide
Template. Sold separately
MANUALLY: place BOTTOM BRACKET, 1- 3/8”
from top of post plate. Measure from bottom
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
Rail Connector and build railing section.
Fully assembled panel is lifted and placed
onto the 4 pre-installed Brackets.

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
When all Baluster are in position between
the POSTS. Secure last of #14 TEK Screws
into the Stair Brackets.
