I'm installing a hand rail from the basement to a landing. One end will be attached to wood framing and the other will be attached to 6" diameter load bearing metal post. I don't want to drill into it. It doesnt matter if it's attached butt ended or to the side (side is better).
Any help is good.
I was hoping to not have to weld it (the person I'm doing this for is on a very tight budget). What about using 2 u-clamps and bolting a piece of wood to those, then just screwing the rail support to that. It would look a little industrial but would it work?
Hi John, depending on the bracket you use, you might try a hose clamp. They are actually pretty strong and not too expensive. If it doesn't work you can escalate to one of each other solutions.
Good luck with it
