ALX Pro with Cable Rail, Vault Dusk Decking and Hinkley Lighted Post Caps

Post Protector

Post protectors create a streamlined, finished look.

Deckorators Post Protectors shield posts from cable abrasion that can occur at corner turns. This protector is easy to install into a 1/4" diameter hole - simply tap with a hammer. The 3/8" diameter outer flange provides solid grip and adds an attractive finished look to your Deckorators cable rail system.

Style Tip

Deckorators Cable Railing is ideal for a second level deck as it allows for an unobstructed view.

Installation Instructions


Use warm water and mild soap when cleaning. Avoid harsh solutions or abrasive cleaning materials, including but not limited to: alkaline or acidic cleaners or solutions containing trisodium phosphate, phosphoric acid, hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, fluorides or similar compounds. Avoid using power-cleaning tools. Clean the fittings and cable after installation and every 6 months thereafter.

We recommend a new 5/8" chrome-plated socket to protect the fitting from raw steel. Avoid installing with rusty tools, as they leave rust deposits on the surface of the fittings almost immediately. After installation, it is critical to clean the system completely with a stainless cleaner and a soft clean rag in order to clear the surface from carbon deposits. For more information, refer to the Cable Railing Installation Instructions.
