80 feet of Snap'n Lock™BALUSTERS installed by first time MICHIGAN DIY'er

How an ordinary diy'er with no prior experience easily installed over 200 balusters in a weekend - and you can too!

Most, first time, DIY'ers would not tackle a job as big as this one.  But Brian, a new homeowner, was enthusiastic and intrigued by the unique sideways installation technique of the Snap'n Lock ™ baluster system. 

If you have ever tried to install hollow metal balusters using bored holes in 2x4s or plastic plug systems, you will really appreciate this story.  You already know that plug style systems are extremely finicky and cannot be done alone.  You not only need an extra set of hands, but you also need a ton of patience!  

about the builder

Testimonial picture

Brian is from Michigan, and his expansive backyard deck needed over 80 feet of railing.  He did some research and the ease of installing each baluster sideways was the deciding factor that led Brain to go with the Snap'n Lock ™ baluster kits from DecksGo manufactured by Titan Building Products.

time is precious

Brain is an ordinary guy, probably just like you, with limited free time to get things done around the house.  The least amount of time it takes him to complete a good job the better. 

Are you like Brian?

There is an immense amount of pride and accomplishment when you do a home improvement project by yourself and you and your family get to enjoy so much. 

When you add architectural profile final touches like the Snap'n Lock ™ baluster connectors and are able to put it all together quickly there is no wondering why Brian felt so much pride in his work.

Brain was also thrilled to find out that there was no need to fear the tackling of a staircase either.  The Snap'n Lock ™ design has been thought through with the goal of making the user's building experience easier and the end product more beautiful.   

Separate wedge-shaped stair adapters snap under the standard horizontal connectors and compensate for the angle of a common range of rise and run dimensions for residential decks.  Easy peasy!

This short video says it all.  The Snap'n Lock ™ sideways method of installation is what makes it a one-person job. 

Believe me, the common plug "top down" type baluster systems are much trickier - to the point where you think you have got to be a human octopus to keep all these dangling balusters together!
