These new Classic Brackets were developed to incorporate the beautiful design elements of sailing. The post pays tribute to the mast of a sailboat... the base is inspired by the base attachment of a dock cleat. Classic elements of the adventure and beauty of boating that you can now bring into your home, cottage or office.

Just like our Modern Machined Brackets, we worked long and hard on the design and prototypes of these brackets. After numerous designs, we found the proportions and style that not only looks great as a rope bracket but is the perfect piece of hardware to showcase the rope it holds.

For the homeowner with a fine property that is looking for a truly nautical styled rope bracket for handrails, this is certainly a piece of hardware to check out.

The installation of these is incredibly simple. The easiest way is to find the spot on the wall where you want to mount the bracket and attach it to the wall. Once the brackets are on the wall, the center screw of the bracket is removed and the rope is inserted. Once everything is in place you can use the screws removed earlier and re-attach them and screw through the middle of the rope and lock the rope in place to prevent the rope from shifting in the bracket. To finish the ends check out our matching CLASSIC END BRACKETS to complete the job.

The quality of these brackets is top notch, they are solid and hefty. The finish is beautiful and long lasting.

We recommend these brackets interior use. You won't regret having these fantastic pieces of hardware showing off your rope handrail at your place.

Perfect for:


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 NOT 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.

Rope 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.
