Cable Railing Kits Simplify Installation

Cable Railing has become a popular option as a deck railing feature. Especially when the view is such that the desire is to minimize any sightline problems. Cable railing kits are available to simplify the process of installing cable railing.

However, to meet building code requirements, there is a need to swage the hardware onto the stainless steel cable. Swaging is a labor-intensive process that must be completed in the field and requires the use of special equipment that must be purchased or rented.

In order to simplify the process, Wagner now offers Cable Railing Kits that utilize “push-lock” and “pull-lock” technology which eliminates the need for swaging.

Ready to Install Cable Railing Kits are pre-swaged and ready for your application. Follow these steps for installation:

  • Measure the outside-to-outside run of the End Post and select the best solution for your project — Push-Lock® or Pull-Lock® Fittings.
  • Insert the cable into the fittings and field trim after tensioning.
  • Cable Railing kits include fittings for both ends of your cable run; all washers and fasteners necessary; 1/8″ or 3/16″ Diameter Type 316 Stainless Steel Cable; and instructions.
