Utilizing ThruLOK for Deck Hand Rail Posts

Installing hand rail­ings on deck stairs or anoth­er con­nec­tion point with Thru­LOK is much faster than the tra­di­tion­al through bolt or car­riage bolt. The sys­tem con­sists of three parts: a hex-head screw, wash­er, and nut. Sim­ply dri­ve the screw into the wood where a con­nec­tion is need­ed. Once the screw is dri­ven tight­ly, sim­ply go to the oppo­site end to screw down the nut, which has pad­dles (sim­i­lar to a wing nut) that allow users to tight­en down the con­nec­tion by hand.
