These instructions will provide step-by-step installation guidelines for installing the Stainless Steel Handrail Wall Bracket Pulsar, HBWA.010 into sheetrock, wood, or drywall surfaces.
This bracket comes with a round saddle adapter to attach to round tubing and 2x M5 screws to attach to a handrail

- [Not Provided] 1x 3/8” mounting wall screw or bolt
Using a stud-finder, locate a stud and the vertical point on the wall that you wish to install your bracket (this point averages about 31” up from the nose of the step depending on your county code and comfort). Spot drill using 3/16” drill bit

NOTE: If the bracket doesn’t align properly you can pound it out using a 1” rod from the bottom of the post. Be careful not to hit any of the tube threading while inserting the rod. Do this over a piece of cloth so that they bracket does not get scratched when it is pounded out.
