Replacing "cage" Around Stairwell

Recommended Posts

We are looking to replace the L shaped cage that surrounds our interior staircase at our cabin. There is currently a flimsy wrought iron cage in place at the time. Our primary concern is to build something up to code so our newborn does not get his head stuck. It would be a bonus if it looked decent as well. This only serves as a gaurd rail of sorts to keep someone from falling down the stair well. There are no 45 degree angles. I thought it would fairly simple to get done.

Does anyone know a good place of business that sells stair parts or pre fabricated sections that I could install? I'm somewhat handy, but I would like to avoid piecing it all together, drilling the holes in the railing, etc.

I edited, since I did not realize you just "wanted to snap it all together", but......

I'm doing the same thing right now.

Menards / Home Depot both carry the stair parts. Home Depot in pine and oak, Menards in 3 o 4 different wood types.

If you ever get over to White Bear Lake, there's a place called Windows, Mouldings and Doors. I went there to check them out, but they don't really stock anything, it's all order stuff, comes in - in 3-4 days.

All of the places you have to sand / stain / varnish yourself.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
