When putting cable railing on your wood frame, you can space posts up to 7 feet if you place cable stabilizers in the middle of each railing section.
The Cable Stabilizer Kit is designed specifically for use where post to post measurement spans over 4′. It enables you to adapt longer spans to code compliance by stabilizing the deflection of cable between posts. Each kit comes with a 42″ stanchion pre-drilled to work with our standard 3″ spacing. In most cases, stanchions must be field cut at both ends for an accurate fit. The Cable Stabilizer Kit cannot be used to replace the use of substantial mid posts and should never be used in spans over 7′. Kit includes fasteners.
