Square shoes are available for the foot of these spindles if you decide to insert the hammered round end into the handrail and the cut square end into the step. You must drill a round, extra large installation hole to insert a square metal spindle into a round hole.. then this “shoe” or “foot” is used to cover the oversized installation holes.


This baluster is available with one or two decorations per spindle, as shown above, but most often combined with the plain square 1/2″ spindles in some alternating pattern.


Note that in almost ALL cases where you use metal spindles you must install 3 spindles per step in order to meet the requirements of no space between spindles that is bigger than 4″. My understanding is that this regulation is pretty consistent across all North American jurisdictions.
