Rated 5 out of 5Â by NuBBs Supply your own screws
This rail is of high quality and when the surface is finished looks and feels the business.
All the fixings are of good quality except for the screws which ar e not up the the job.
Pre-drilling pilots for screws is essential.
A shame that fitting instructions are only available to download.

For such an amazing well built product why are the screws provided so bad would have been easy to put up had half the heads on the screws not shredded.
I would buy this again but really throw the screws they provide in the bin immediately just not worth the hassle.

This is a lovely piece of wood.
I made it hard for myself in the beginning but in the end it looks great. The best way of installing it should be to have a pilot drill bit and 3.5mm drill bit for the holes. Make sure it is deep enough. before screwing it in. A 4.5mm drill bit for the ends and a tapper screw of 5mm. This will help when hand tightening the screw at the ends.
Looks fantastic and is solid.

Overall very good solid quality product. Unfortunatey quite difficult to install due to poor instructions and poor quality screws.
1. You have to download instructions from the web. It's only 2 sides of A4. Can't imagine why these can't be included in the box. I was fitting at my inlaws house and no internet.
2. Srews supplied are poor quality and very easy to strip head.
3. Because the oak is very hard it is critical to pilot drill sufficiently and pre-screw / unscrew before fixing in place.
4. Screws for end caps are bigger than the other fixings and have a spherical cover that can't be removed. Pilot drilling 3mm as instructions just does not work.
5. Quality of "silver" brackets is poor. You can see the surface stripping off as you tighten the screws.
