The RailEasy Tensioner is the primary cable railing tensioning/fastening device. The compression fitting allows for installation and tensioning by using simple hand tools. It features a slotted base to achieve angles up to 45 degrees, making it perfect for stair applications.

The Patented tensioner is used for cable railing applications. The slotted base allows for angles up to 45 degrees and is used at either end of cable runs. The flat base can be fixed on any level surface at any orientation and stays fixed while allowing the body to rotate during tensioning of cable.

How many tensioners are required for your project? A cable span may not exceed 25'. A 36" rail height typically uses 10 runs of cable. a 42" rail height typically uses 12 runs of cable. See the RailEasy Cable Railing Guide PDF for complete information.

The patented RailEasy Cable Railing System is designed to be used with existing or new wood (or in some cases, metal) posts. Make sure that all post material and attachments (rails) are constructed of approved materials per your local building code. Most building departments have a simple set of deck building criteria that are easy to follow. For commercial projects, the requirements may be different and the building department should be consulted.
