cable runs on a pitch
Top posts are often corner posts, which may require the stair run to connect to the face of the post. The top and bottom of the cable run would be connected perpendicular to those posts, and only the intermediate posts would be drilled on the angle for the cable to run through.
Use the 500 Series for wood posts, use the 500-W Series;
The tensioning device is an Adjust-a-Body® with Threaded Eye, which attaches via a mounting screw to the lag eye, threaded tab, or extended length lag eye, depending on the kit. A Push-Lock® with Threaded Eye attaches the same way to the other end.The 500-W Series can be used to go up a stair and across a landing by inserting post protector tubes (order CS-TUBE separately) in the break-over post. The tube will prevent the cable from carving a groove into your post where it exits at an angle.
