How much do you know about installing stair parts? Could you do it yourself if you were ready for a change?

Is installing stair parts something you think you could do? Maybe you’ve loved the look of your wood balusters for many years.  But now… it’s time for a change.

You’re ready to install those beautiful iron balusters at Home Depot you’ve been eyeing for the last few months. You wonder if you can make the change yourself? Surely… installing stair parts is too hard? You have to hire someone. Right?

Changing from wood to iron balusters doesn’t have to be a pro-only project. Tap-N-Twist™ can make the job much easier!

With Tap-N-Twist from Evermark, the only part of this process that requires basic carpentry skills and tools is the removal of your existing wood balusters and then, cutting and installing your new hollow iron balusters.

As explained on thisoldhouse.com:

“If taking out a baluster, pull it sideways out of the mortise in the tread, then free the top end by tapping it with a hammer toward the top of the stair. Use nippers to pull out any nails in the handrail and tread, and 80-grit sandpaper to smooth the tread around the mortise and the underside of the handrail.”

While that might not sound too incredibly difficult, that’s just a brief explanation of the process. You can read the full, in-depth, sequence of steps here.

Once you’re finished removing the wood balusters from your staircase, it’s time to install your new iron balusters and that’s where the magic of Tap-N-Twist shines!

Previously, you’d need some serious tools and you’d have to be fairly handy with them. Furthermore, you’d need to set aside a significant period of time to get the job done.

That alone can be a challenge since many balconies are upstairs. These challenges prevented many people from getting the new iron baluster they desired for many years. Then came Tap-N-Twist!
