The 471 Series Cable Railing Kit by Ultra-Tec features a surface-mount configuration, along with two different cable size options and a wide variety of lengths that were specifically designed for use with metal posts. It includes a Push-Lock turnbuckle with threaded bolt to easily screw into one end post, and an Adjust-A-Body with threaded bolt on the other end, making it the most simplistic cable railing kits on the market today. With this kit's 100% swageless design specifically made for DIY homeowners, it will completely eliminate the need for expensive professional installation while also making your deck look great!
Swageless fittings are made to easily be installed by hand in the field, requiring only the use of Cable Cutters. By using swageless fittings, the holes that need to be made only need to be as big as the bare cable that passes through. This also eliminates the use installers or expensive machinery because it can all be done by hand in a matter of minutes.
Surface-Mount Configurations are the only type of installations that the 471 Series can be used with. Surface-Mount installations create an organized, clean look while also serving as a secure means of installing your cable railing in situations where the back of the post is inaccesible or creating a smooth run of cable on single corner posts. The 471 Series is one of the few installation kits that is able to be installed in applications that have two corners, making it the ideal solution for deck installation.

Metal Post Installations
For steel posts, a size of 2” is required to keep the post from bending when cables are tensioned. End posts will need to be a minimum 1/4” wall in order to handle the load when the cables are tensioned; intermediates can be 1/8”. You will also need a top rail that is sufficient for structural integrity. For aluminum, your end posts should be reinforced and you may want to consider a bottom rail to help prevent post-bowing.
Intermediate posts (or mid-posts) are to be placed every 48" between end posts. An intermediate post runs from the top rail to the lower mounting surface and is integral for proper structural design. Intermediate posts can be substituted with something thinner such as an aluminum or steel cable brace. Cables are strung through holes in each post in order to provide support between end posts. Each post hole made should not exceed 3" vertical spacing in order to comply with IBC regulations. Cable Braces can be purchased here.
Tools Needed For Installation:
- 5/32 Drill Bit For 1/8" Cable / 7/32 Drill Bit For 3/16" Cable
- Cutting Tap Drill Bit I (For Pilot Hole) And 5/16-24 Tap For Threaded Bolt Installation
- 1/4 Wrench For Installing Threaded Bolts
- 3/8 Wrench For Tensioning Push-Lock Stud
- Cable Cutting Tool
*In order to comply with IBC regualtions, an intermediate post must be placed every 48" between posts and distance between each cable shall not exceed 3", however specific city and state rules and regulations may apply.
