Staircase handrail kit
Well presented, easy to install, good quality - except the wall fixing screws, not too impressed - I beefed them up a bit and used my own. The finished article looks and feels good.

Oak Burbridge Handrail Kit
As with other reviewers I found that if you followed the instructions (downloadable) carefully this was a good piece of kit for the money. Comes boxed up in a 4 foot (ish) long box so easy to transport.
Like others I found the only weakness was the screws supplied. I tried with the originals but in the end brought something a bit more robust.
If these had been usable it would have been a five star product - Richard Burbridge please note!

Good and easy to put up and looks good.
Only problem is the same as others found, be warned do not use the screws that come with the kit first the ends of the screw ware then the screw snaps half screwed in and you can't get the bracket off so you have to hacksaw it to get the bracket off then you have to saw 25 mm off the wood so you can drill a pilot hole and screw again.
Screws are to soft to go in to hardwood.
Used other screwfix screws I had and was much better.

The bannister itself is superb quality, however I would recommend using your own screws ! One bent, two heads were rounded and two snapped halfway in the wood and that is after following the instructions to the letter and ensuring I had the right head for the screws, manually screwing them in.
