The Invisiware Receiver is a concealed, swaged, tensioning, through the-post-mounted fitting that is suitable for level or pitched runs, and is available for wood applications for 1/8” and 3/16” diameter 1x19 stainless steel cable.
The Invisiware Receiver with stud can be used with any other fitting on the opposite end of the run. This fitting is placed and concealed within a pre-drilled hole in the wood end post (a minimum of 3” of clearance must exist on the back side of the post to allow installation of the Receiver). We recommend placing a stainless steel flat washer between the fitting shoulder and the mating surface of the wood post. The stud is swaged onto one end of the cable and is inserted and threaded into the Receiver installed in the end post. Tension is created by rotating the Receiver (with a hex wrench inserted into its broached end) and drawing the stud into the Receiver.
This fitting can also be used in pitched applications using the same horizontally drilled method for 4x4 wood posts. The same method works for larger posts by installing a post protector tube on the cable exit-to-pitch side of your wood end post (post protector tube sold separately, see below). This fitting is commonly paired with a Pull-Lock on the opposite end of the run. The Receiver/Pull-Lock combination is a mainstay of our popular 1/8” and 3/16” kit offerings.Invisiware Receiver Brochure Invisiware Receiver Stairway Installation
