Installation Guide
Handrail kit with pivoting brackets
for horizontal or angled applications
hold on to what matters
Do not attach brackets to wall cladding. Screws must be of appropriate type and
must fix securely to wood studs, concrete, brick, or other structural members.
Measure and mark
34 - 38” (86-96 cm) to floor
Supplies: Tape measure, stud finder, level, electric drill/screwdriver, screws. Use
three screws per bracket, minimum size #12, of sufficient length to penetrate at
least 2” (5 cm) into inner wall structure. Oval or flat-head screws are recommended.
5-1/2” (14 cm)
Before you start - please read all instructions carefully
Mark the position of the right and left bracket lower screws on the wall, 5-1/2” (14
cm) below the top surface of the handrail (Fig. 1).
5-1/2” (14 cm)
Mark the position of the far right and far left brackets on the wall, between 2” (5 cm)
and 6” (15 cm) from the ends of the handrail tube (Fig. 1). For hollow walls, use a
stud finder to locate the studs and adjust the position of the brackets as necessary
so that their attachment screws will line up with the structural members.
34 - 38” (86-96 cm)
to front edge of stairs
Install handrail with the top surface between 34” (86 cm) and 38” (96 cm) above the
floor or stairs (Fig. 1). Adjust as necessary for the height of the user(s).
Prepare handrail
Insert endcaps or ADA returns into the ends of the tube, tapping with a wooden or
plastic hammer if necessary. To secure them, screw the provided set screws through
the notch (endcap) or hole (ADA Return) into the narrow groove in the railing
channel. Hold fittings firmly in place while attaching (Fig. 2). Do not overtighten.
Fig. 1
Railings greater than 108”: Handrails longer than 108” are shipped in two or more
pieces. Attach the pieces together by fitting the supplied splice in the channel and
installing the six set screws, three in each section of railing. Do not overtighten.
For angled installation (stairs or ramps): Unlock the stainless steel head on each
bracket by loosening the screw on the back of the bracket and pulling the head
up to disengage the pin (Fig. 3). Retighten the screw. This will permit the bracket
to be pivoted to a vertical orientation AFTER the bracket is fixed to the railing.
Fig. 2
Attach a bracket to the railing at one end only (additional brackets will be
added later, after the railing is secured to the wall): With the bracket head fully
seated in the railing channel in the desired position, twist the bracket clockwise 90
degrees (Fig. 4). You should feel the bracket lock into place at the correct angle.
Attach handrail to wall
Fig. 3
Place the railing with one bracket against the mark on the wall and check the
location. Adjust the bracket position if necessary by unlocking, sliding, and relocking
it. When you are satisfied, screw the bracket loosely to the wall through one hole.
To avoid splitting wooden studs, drill pilot holes before attaching screws.
Top screws should be angled slightly inward towards the center of the stud.
Install the second bracket at the other end of the railing, in line with the second
mark. Check for levelness or correct angle and attach to the wall with one screw.
Railings longer than 36” (91 cm): After the railing is attached to the wall with the
two end brackets, install additional bracket(s) where screws will penetrate the wall
structure. Brackets should be spaced minimum 32” (81 cm) apart for safety.
Install remaining screws, making sure that brackets are vertical. Tighten securely.
PromenAid™ handrails are guaranteed for one year against all manufacturing defects.
Installation must be performed by qualified personnel.
