Traditional cover shoes don’t allow enough room to install lag-bolts with an impact wrench due to the ‘4″ MAX space code,’ but our new split cover style square shoe allows you to install them last. Base-plates can now be welded to posts in shop and installed directly to the balcony or stairs. No field welding of baseplates means less heat damage to flooring and surrounding areas. This also cuts down drastically on valuable installation time and cost.
The Simshoe® halves fit together snugly, but a small amount of ABS glue is recommended for permanent installation. Simshoe’s® are molded in durable black, navajo white and white ABS plastic with a satin finish. They look nice as they are or may be painted custom colors to match the railing.
