Replacement stair rod brackets for all sizes and finishes of stair rods
We sell pairs of stair rod brackets for cylindrical stair rods. We also sell brackets for triangular styles of rods such as the Royale Collection.
Should your stair rods be old, you may find they differ in diameter to those currently in the marketplace. This is a common problem and we therefore can supply small foam inserts, should your rods be slightly smaller.
Cylindrical stair rod brackets
Our solid brass stair rod brackets are sold in pairs and come complete with matching screws. They are suitable for both solid and hollow rods. Choose from hinged Runner stair rod brackets suitable for carpet runners, Front Fix brackets for fitted carpets or Side Fix brackets for fitted carpets. They are designed to accommodate stair carpet rods such as the Premier, Crystal, Vision and Country and are suitable for plain, spiral and reeded styles of rods.
The cylindrical rod brackets for runner rods are hinged, with the stair rod clamped in place through the centre, and held in place with two screws on either side of the runner. The front fix brackets are suitable for fitted carpets and clamp over the top of the rod and are held in place with two screws through the carpet, whilst the side fix brackets are also suitable for fitted carpets and are screwed into the stringboard.
Note: side fix brackets are not suitable for winders. For further information about the difference between the styles of bracket, please see our How to Guide.
Brackets are available in ten metal finishes: polished brass, antique or satin brass, antique bronze, polished chrome, brushed chrome, satin and polished nickel, pewter and black.
Two alternative sizes are offered: for 12mm (1/2”) and 16mm (5/8”) diameter rods.
The stair rod brackets are supplied with No. 6 screws: drill a pilot hole before fixing the brackets to the staircase, then drill a 4mm clearance hole for the screw shank. It is suggested for softwood: drill a 2.5mm pilot hole and hardwood a 3mm pilot hole. To avoid damaging the screws it is suggested you use a low drill speed.
- Runner rods brackets: separate, by sliding the top from the bottom of the bracket to reveal the screw holes. Fit the bottom section first, and then place the rod in before sliding the top bracket section into place and securing with the supplied domed-head screw.
- Fitted carpet Front Fix brackets: place the rod on the stair carpet and place the Front Fix brackets over the rod face, screwing them through the carpet. We recommend that you leave at least a 2.5-5cm gap between the stringboard (side of staircase) and tip of the rod, on both sides of the staircase.
It is important to note that stair rods and brackets are purely decorative and do not fix the carpet to the stairs: your flooring must be secured by another means of installation.
Cleaning your cylindrical rod brackets
These brackets have an invisible lacquer to protect them and keep them looking pristine. Simply wipe clean occasionally, and do not polish. If you use any household cleaners to clean surrounding wood and paintwork, this should be applied to the cloth and not directly sprayed on the surface of the staircase, as the cleaner can react with the finish of the rods.
