  • What I saw on Face book said you could enter until the 17th so I am assuming that this entry is still good. I am entering my method for installing the squash blocks. To attach the blocks to the bottom of the rail assembly I create a slot in the underside of the rail in the same shape as is used for the daggers above. You need a drill and utility knife to do this. I then insert a dagger into the slot, cut the block, place the block on the dagger and then install the bottom rail in place. This method allows the installer to place the block where ever he wants (i.e. in the middle or under a spindle). The slot can also be placed for the diamond pattern if that is how the spindles are being installed. Because the block is attached to the rail and not the deck it is less likely to be damaged or broken if it or the rail is kicked or pushed. Blocks attached to the deck tend to break when the railing is forcefully moved. This method of block attachment is fast, easy and give the installer a variety of options.

    I will also quickly submit the idea of drilling several weep holes in the bottom of the bottom rail. It doesn’t speed up installation but does give the customer a better product.

    Thank you for your time
