How to Fit Handrail on Stairs?

Answer

To fit handrail on stairs, you should first determine the location for the staircase railing on the wall and then use a stud sensor to find the location of the wall studs along the chalk line. Position the lowest rail bracket first and use a level to make sure that the bracket is square to the wall. Drill pilot holes through the drywall and into the studs so the bracket can be mounted to the wall, measure and cut lengths of rail to fit the wall, with enough overlap to reach past the wall brackets and position the rail over the brackets and test the fit.
