Installing Stainless Steel Handrail Wall Bracket Square for Flat Bottom tube Slim
These instructions will provide step-by-step installation guidelines for installing the Stainless Steel Handrail Wall Bracket Square for Flat Bottom Tube Slim, HBWA.009 into wood, drywall, or sheetrock
These brackets come with a wall bracket screw/hanger bolt to attach to the wall, and an M6 bolt to attach to a handrail
Brackets should be installed at a maximum spacing of 4’
Caution: Wear protective ANSI approved safety glasses, working gloves and breathing mask at all times
- Handheld drill
- 3/16” drill bit
- 4mm hex wrench
- 2.5mm hex wrench
- M6x1.00 Tap
Part 1: Install the Wall Bracket
- Using a stud-finder, locate a stud and the vertical position off the nose of the step that you would like to position the handrail bracket (this hole on average is 31” depending on your county code and comfort). Spot drill using 3/16” drill bit.
- Loosen the 2.5mm hex screw enough on the underside of the main assembly to clear a few threads. A small internal sleeve will be released.
- Place the wall flange (#2) over the machine threaded end of the wall bracket screw (#1) and use fingers to tighten the screw
- Drive the assembled screw and flange into the hole and secure the lag end of the stud using a 4mm hex wrench.
- Position the main assembly onto the mounted wall flange at the desired orientation and tighten the small hex screw with a 2.5mm wrench. Note: This bracket only tightens when fastened to the wall.
- To connect to Inline Design steel tubes, insert the M6 bolt through the vertical portion of the main assembly
Note: If affixing to a wooden handrail, customers will need to purchase lag screw to replace M6 bolt
Part 2: Attach to Handrail
For the strongest attachment to Inline Design tubing, we recommend attaching this bracket to a stainless steel handrail with M6 drill bit and corresponding tap.
Note: Attaching to wooden handrails or other stainless steel tubing will require different method of attachment e.g. drilling/tapping, refer to the manufacturer’s instruction to correctly attach
NOTE: A small amount of surface corrosion is not uncommon after some exposure to weather or salty conditions; we recommend using our passivation solution or a stainless steel polish to prevent surface corrosion; more information available on our Engineering Specs Page
