Just like in Tedd's case, Bob needed a railing for a small set of stairs in his garage.

We were concerned that they might stumble on the steps and get injured." Bob appreciated the ease of installation, which he was very familiar with, having used Simple Rail handrail kits at work for railings on cooling towers and in elevator machine rooms.

David is 75 years old and was set for a procedure to replace both of his knees. So he needed a railing to help support himself when going in and out of his house. That's when he came across Simple Rail. It was a perfect fit for his situation. David loved how his railing came out and now feels safe going up and down the concrete steps outside his home. Here's what David had to say...
"I thought it turned out really good & strong so I will feel confident using the handrails during my recuperation. They don't normally do two knee replacements on the same day, so I had my wife take a photo of me holding myself up on the handrails to show the surgeon that I am strong enough at my older age to withstand getting both knees done at once and it also showed how strong the railing is as I weigh 220 pounds."
Thomas needed to install a short railing for the two concrete steps in his father's garage. He found the L-160 railing kit and was able to add a solution to this problem quickly and with minimal effort. Here's what Thomas had to say...
"I bought the L-160 railing kit. It was industrial grade quality, much better than I imagined. The directions were easy to follow. I anchored into the concrete steps. Only change in directions that I made was drilling the holes in the railing before mounting rather than after as the directions suggest, since the steel is quite thick and needs a lot of torque to drill through, it was better to set it up in a vise and drill it that way."
Michael came to us because he wanted to put a handrail on the concrete steps outside on his back porch. However, he had constraints when finding a solution since the top of the steps had been repaired and probably would not support a flange or post. He also wanted to be able to grasp the railing from the inside of the porch before stepping down. He was able to accomplish all of this by modifying one of our hybrid kits.
