Preparing your existing staircase
Apply masking tape to side of handrail and treads to help mark existing balusters centre.
Marking your centre points
Use a level to mark existing balusters centre at the top and the bottom.
Removing existing balusters
To keep the handrail supported cut out and remove only 4 or 5 balusters at one time then replace them with the adjustable wrought iron.
Preparing for new baluster install
Once existing balusters are removed mark the centres on masking tape.
Installing Adjustable Wrought Iron base
With the help of your Allen key, loosen the base set screws (1) and remove the base from the baluster. Apply adhesive underneath the base before aligning with the existing hole on the tread. Run screw through the baluster base into tread. Once the baluster base is set, place the baluster shaft into base.
Installing Adjustable Wrought Iron baluster
Apply adhesive on the flat surface of the baluster swivel top. Loosen the telescopic shaft set screw (1) with Allen key and extend baluster to reach underside of the handrail. Adjust swivel top to handrail angle and secure into position using two screws.
Fastening your Adjustable Wrought Iron Baluster
Once the baluster is installed, tighten and lock the baluster base, telescopic shaft and swivel top with the set screw. It is suggested to apply thread locking liquid on the set screws. Do not apply thread lock liquid on the swivel top until it is securely screwed into the handrail.
