NOTE: We cannot accept returns on custom swaging. We will work with you to ensure that what you order is exactly what you need the first time. Cable Railing Direct assemblies, fittings, and wire rope should only be used for their intended purpose within the cables safe workload limit and never be used in lifting or other high load applications.
If you’d like your posts to arrive pre-drilled, rather than having to drill them yourself upon arrival, take advantage of our angled hole drilling service.
Let us prepare your top rail for clean corners through our mitre cutting service.
We typically send our aluminum posts longer than they need to be. This way you can cut them yourself upon arrival, as it’s rather easy and gives you greater control over the end product, provided you already have the necessary equipment. If you don’t, then take advantage of our post cutting service!
