Bar Foot Rail Project Planning Questions

We offer customizations to suit your needs! Just shoot us an email at with your specifications such as the exact length, preferred diameter size, and finish, and we'll provide you with a link for your custom order.

Alternatively, if you're open to trimming the tubes yourself, you can purchase a slightly longer standard length. To shorten your rail, use a hacksaw or a chop saw with a metal cutting blade to cut a piece of standard size tubing until it reaches the desired length. We recommend using a miter box whenever using a hacksaw to ensure straight cuts. Don't worry too much about the ends, as they can be covered by the end caps or brackets.

The standard height for a bar foot rail is usually 6-8 inches from the ground, depending on the type of brackets used. If needed, you can adjust this height to match the height of your bar stools or countertop. For installations requiring a height greater than 8 inches, we suggest using bar-mounted brackets or ordering custom bar rail brackets.

For outdoor use,we suggest opting for our satin stainless steel, polished stainless steel, or matte black finished bar rail tubing and components. These are made from stainless steel designed to resist oxidation.

Certainly! Feel free to include a note specifying your preference for a natural patina, and we'll instruct our team to skip the lacquering process.

Successful installation of bar foot rail depends on thorough preparation and exercising patience. Minimize handling of the tubing once it's laid out to reduce the risk of scratches. If the tubing arrives wrapped in plastic film, leave it intact as long as possible for added protection.

Ensure that the brackets' openings are smooth and clean to prevent scratching when inserting the tubing. Utilize a water-based lubricant to facilitate smooth sliding of the tubing through the brackets. Additionally, pass the tubing through the brackets before joining sections together to avoid sliding a bracket along a lengthy piece of tubing.

For the ends,  we recommend coating the inside of the end of your tubing with an adhesive before inserting the end caps for a permanent bond. Alternatively, you can wrap the stem of the end caps with masking tape or electrical tape several times before sliding it into the tubing for a snug fit.

Absolutely! Our Bar Foot rail kits come with brackets and all the necessary screws for installation.
