Build Them Right
Using our Quick-Connect® style fittings with automatic-locking jaws and our bulk cable you can build your assemblies in the field. The cable end is simply inserted into the fitting and the spring-loaded one-way jaws grab and lock on. If necessary, a reusable release tool can be used to disengage and remove or readjust the fitting.
All fittings and cables are manufactured from high-quality 316-grade stainless steel for weather-tough durability, ultra-low maintenance, and lasting beauty.
Bulk Cable – 1/8″ diameter 1×19 cable construction is available in various lengths for use with CableRail fittings.

Care and Maintenance
Feeney offers comprehensive care and maintenance documents categorized by material: one for stainless steel fittings and cables, and another for powder-coated aluminum products.
For best protection of CableRail, Feeney recommends using SteelRenewal™ and SteelProtect™, a stainless steel cleaner and protectant kit combo pack to help maintain your stainless steel surfaces.
Can fittings and cable be purchased separately for fabricating assemblies in the field?
Yes. We offer a wide selection of cables and fittings, many of which include our Quick-Connect® automatic locking-jaw technology, all engineered for easy installation in the field. See our CableRail Fittings page for more information.
Can I cut the cables with a pair of wire cutters?
No. Wire cutters will crush the cable and cause you significant frustration during installation. You should use cable cutters that are designed to cleanly shear the cable (see our Cable Cutters #2972-PKG). An electric grinder with a cut-off disk is another option that works very well for trimming both the cable and the excess threads on the Threaded Terminal fittings.
Can I run the cables continuously around a single corner post or do I have to terminate?
In most cases, you will need to terminate the cables at a single corner post. To run the cables continuously around a corner, you would need to have double posts at the corner. For basic guidelines to help prepare your railing frame, please see our Feeney CableRail Installation Instructions.
