Simshoe Square


How many come for this price ?
1 whole Simshoe. So if you order a qty of 1, you will receive 2 halves.
Can this be used on a wood post?
Please measure the post you want to place a Simshoe on. The square Simshoes are designed to fit the following sizes of square posts: 1″, 1.25″, 1.5″ and 2″. The Simshoes will not fit a standard 4×4 wood post.
The two pieces look like they attach to each other with plastic tabs. Can these be taken on and off to do rail or cement maintenance?
If you choose not to glue them together, they snap and unsnap easily. Can be removed and put back on no problem.
Is an adhesive required?
Adhesive is recommended but not necessarily required. The two ends snap and hold together fine. However, if kicked or bumped, they may come loose. The Simshoes are made of ABS Plastic and it is recommended to use ABS glue or super glue for a more permanent hold.
I need one for 2.5 inch by 2.5 inch post. Any ideas?
We do not manufacture Simshoes in 2.5 x 2.5.


Simshoe Round

Will it cover a 3.5 baseplate?

The base of the shoes measure 3-5/8″ So it will sit on top of a 3-1/2″ base plate.

What is the difference between the three options? They all look the same.
1.5″ std pipe (1.5″ schedule 40) measures 1-7/8″ diameter 1.25 std pipe (1.25 schedule 40) measures 1-5/8″ diameter 1.5″ tubing measures 1-1/2″ diameter


Split Knuckle

When these snap together they are too wide for the railing. What is the best way to secure them in place?
Silicone Caulk inside the Knuckle. Put a good Bead of Clear or color match Silicone on the inside of the Knuckle, put the knuckle in place and hold it in place with a clamp below it or tape it in place. Be sure that you use enough silicone to get a good hold on the railing. You can wipe any excess that might ooze out. You could also use Siliconized Latex Caulk if you are going to paint the railing at some point.
What is the height of these?
1/2 split-knuckle is 1-3/8″H x 1-3/8″W 5/8 Split-knuckle is 1-3/4″H x 1-3/4″W
Do you make split knuckles for round balusters?
We do not manufacture round Split-Knuckles. Currently only square in 2 sizes, 1/2″ and 5/8″
