Hands down one of the best rope brackets you can find anywhere. These custom designed rope brackets are made to be used as a rope handrail in your home or office. The unique look and design of these is featured here as either an end bracket or a center bracket. If a modern looking piece of rope hardware is what you are looking for, you owe it to yourself to take a look at these.

Make no mistake, the quality and substance of these sets a new standard for excellence in rope handrail hardware. In the past, if you wanted to make a rope handrail the only options were poorly made, cheaply produced and ugly rope brackets. These brackets are exceptional for anyone looking for a more modern and solid handrail.

We have spent about two years developing these to make them right. Through countless designs, prototypes and testing we have discovered what works and then worked harder to make these new brackets easy to install, solid on the wall and, of course, fantastic looking. These are really designed to meet the needs of customers of high value projects who simply need the absolute best product they can get.

The result are indeed the finest rope brackets you can buy.. period!

For starters, these are machined out of solid metal. As soon as you pick one up you will be able to feel the quality difference. These are truly a heavy-duty piece of hardware. By looking at the photos here you can see for yourself how well these are built.

So, here is how these work.

We sell these as either a "CENTER BRACKET" or "END BRACKET". As the name would imply, the center brackets are for the rope to run through, so they go in the middle part of a rope railing. The end brackets, as you can probably guess, go on the ends. The design of these has a closed end so the rope can dead end into it and be neatly sealed and hidden. Each bracket works in the same way. There is a mounting base that attaches to the wall, and then the solid metal bracket part attaches to that with a set screw. The beauty of this design is that you can mount the base with the mounting holes vertical (in order to attach to a stud for instance) and then adjust the bracket at any degree you need to. This is a huge help since a lot of the time these are used in homes or cottages where typical stair run rates and angles aren't always present. With these brackets it doesn't matter, you can adjust them to whatever angle you want. Once you have the bracket base installed you can run the rope through the brackets and slide them in place so that they are over the mounting posts on the wall you just installed. When you have the bracket on the rope where you want it just insert the lock down screw in the bracket to screw through the rope and lock it in place. Then just put the bracket on the mounting stem, lock it down with the set screw (using the provided allen key) and you are done. It is that simple and the best part.... NO VISIBLE SCREWS! What's really cool is the fact that there is no left or right end cap, you can use either one, it's perfect!

These really are top notch and will truly impress your friends when they see it and make that stairwell look awesome.

The MODERN MACHINED ROPE BRACKET is designed to be used with 1 1/2 rope. We have numerous selections of rope that will work with these. You can use our Cotton (in your choice of three colors) Polyester Combo, Pro Manila, 8 Strand Poly, 4 Strand Jute, or even our 1 1/2 Bull Rope.

We are so excited to bring these into the line and share them with you. If you want to do the job right, you can't lose with these pieces of hardware.

Under no circumstances ever, for any reason, at any time, by anybody, should these be used to make an attachment for a climbing rope!

They are absolutely safe for that activity and you can get hurt or killed.


Knots & Splices

Wherever possible, use splices constructed to safe specifications. A proper splice on a rope can maintain 80% to 100% of the new rope average break strength. Trained personnel should construct all splices. If knots are used on a rope, be aware that they can reduce the rope's strength by up to 50%. If knots are required, be sure to select the proper knot for the job.

Rope Strengths

All rope has a rating referred to as a "tensile strength" or "average break strength." This number is the amount of weight that the rope should be able to hold in ideal conditions, specifically, a new rope, with no knots or splices, at room temperature. These break strength numbers are based on actual destructive break testing by the manufacturer or a certified third-party testing facility. Ropes are tested over many cycles and the average break strength is determined and specified for the product. We test our ropes personally, and all our splicers have their work tested on an ongoing basis using a certified test bed facility. This is to ensure that their splicing work is perfect, and that their splicing technique and skills are 100% within acceptable splicing guidelines set by the rope industry. Even the best splices and best rope can break if overloaded or used improperly. Make sure you thoroughly understand what you are doing with a rope. Get the right rope for the right job. If you have questions or are even remotely unsure or have doubts. STOP and get the information you need to BE SURE you are doing things safely.

ope wear, knots, extreme hot or cold temperatures, chemicals, the manner in which the load is applied and other factors will result in a break strength lower than the stated average break strength.

A rope with a stated or advertised break strength, in pounds will not necessarily safely hold something that weighs that amount! Refer to the SAFE WORKING LOAD of a specific rope for more information.

IF IN DOUBT, ASK A PROFESSIONAL. We get calls all the time from people who have questions about what is the best rope to use for any given application. Don't be afraid to ask. Ultimately YOU are responsible for your safety using ANY rope, so don't chance it.

Working Loads

In a broad generalization, most working loads vary from 1/10 to 1/4 of the average break strength of the rope. Applications for rope used in life support or personal fall protection environments must use the 1/10 ratio.
