Oak Burbridge Handrail Kit
19 Dec 2014
By hertfordhirediyer
, Stevenage
" As with other reviewers I found that if you followed the instructions (downloadable) carefully this was a good piece of kit for the money. Comes boxed up in a 4 foot (ish) long box so easy to transport.
Like others I found the only weakness was the screws supplied. I tried with the originals but in the end brought something a bit more robust.
If these had been usable it would have been a five star product - Richard Burbridge please note! "

Good item
18 Dec 2014
By Skippytheskip

" Good and easy to put up and looks good.
Only problem is the same as others found, be warned do not use the screws that come with the kit first the ends of the screw ware then the screw snaps half screwed in and you can't get the bracket off so you have to hacksaw it to get the bracket off then you have to saw 25 mm off the wood so you can drill a pilot hole and screw again.
Screws are to soft to go in to hardwood.
Used other screwfix screws I had and was much better.

Great product

" The bannister itself is superb quality, however I would recommend using your own screws ! One bent, two heads were rounded and two snapped halfway in the wood and that is after following the instructions to the letter and ensuring I had the right head for the screws, manually screwing them in. "

Good product, fixings iffy
12 Mar 2014

" Good quality product overall BUT...
1) The quality of the screws provided could be better: the metal appears to be a little soft to me. The screw head does not appear to be a standard Posidriv or Phillips, so screwdrivers didn't fit well. Hence I found that it was quite easy to burr the crossheads when tightening them.
2) The instructions provided specify drilling a 3mm pilot hole for screws going into the wooden hand rail. This is too small and, after experimentation, I found 4mm is a better choice.
3) The decorative screws to secure the end-caps are particularly tricky to use because there is no way of gripping them beyond finger tight. I had to mess around opening out the pilot holes beyond 4mm to get to a size that worked for me. Maybe a design with a sunken Posidriv slot would be better.
Anyway, after overcoming these issues I was pleased with the result. "
