Toggle and Toggle Turnbuckle

These cable rail fittings are used for face mounting to posts. These wire railing parts can be used on both metal and wood posts. They are ideal for stairs as they pivot up and down for the angle of stairs. We typically connect these to wood posts using ¼” x 2” stainless steel lags and metal posts using ¼-20 button head screws (supplied with the fitting when purchased from us). The turnbuckle allows for 3” of tensioning while the toggle serves as an end termination only. These can be used as a matching set or you can use either of these on one end and a different fitting on the second end. These stainless steel cable railing fittings are available to be swaged at our office or they can be swaged in the field.

Deck Toggle

These cable rail fittings are used for face mounting to posts. They can be used on both metal and wood posts. They are ideal for stairs as they pivot up and down for the angle of stairs. We typically connect these to wood posts using ¼” x 2” steel lags and metal posts using ¼-20 button head screws (supplied with the fitting when purchased from us). The deck toggle is an end termination only and must be paired with a fastening fitting on the other end of the cable (such as a toggle turnbuckle or threaded stud). These stainless steel cable rail fittings are available to be swaged in the field.

Threaded Stud

Threaded studs require that you drill through your end post and that you have a washer, nut and cap nut on the exterior of the post. These work well with both wood and metal frames. When you use a threaded stud, you have 2” of thread for tensioning the cable. Some systems use these fittings on both end and other times they are used along with another type of fitting on the opposite end. These are the most economical fitting that we can offer for tensioning a cable. Please keep in mind, if you use threaded studs and you have a 90 degree corner, you will have to offset the cables by ½” to allow the fittings to pass each other. The threaded stud can be swaged at our office or you can swage it in the field. When you purchase these from us, you will have the washer (fender for wood and flat for steel), regular nut and acorn nut included in the purchase price.

Stemball

The stemball can be used as a termination fitting that does not allow for tensioning. It will have to be paired with a tensioning fitting on the other side of the cable (such as a toggle turnbuckle or threaded stud). These are economical and can be used with a turnbuckle or threaded stud on the opposite end so that you can tighten the cables. The stemball can only be swaged at our office. We will supply the washer (fender for wood and flat for steel) when you purchase these from us.

Pull Lock

These cable rail fittings allow you to have us swage a tensioning fitting (turnbuckle or threaded stud) on one end and then you drill your hole all the way through the post for this fitting. Once you put the cable through this fitting, you pull all the slack from the system out of this fitting and cut the excess cable with a side grinder/cutting wheel. Place the cap on the end and go to the end with the tensioning fitting and tighten the cable. This makes the installation process such that you don’t have to rent any tools or crimp any ends for an installation.
