Would buy again
I took a flying leap off these stairs earlier this year and broke my ankle. In the interest of the rest of my bones, I installed these rails. They were easy to install. They are sturdy enough for me. I would not want a 600 pound weight pulling on them to test the strength mentioned in the listing as am unsure if they would withstand that. And no children hanging on them. The price was right and the style worked in the open layout of the home.
VEVOR Iron Handrail Stair Railing Hand Rail Kit Fit for 1-3 Steps Outdoor Black

Sufficient, fair value
This is review for "VEVOR Outdoor Stair Railing, Fits for 0-5 Steps Transitional Wrought Iron Handrail, Adjustable Exterior Stair Railing, Handrails for Concrete Steps with Installation Kit, Matte Black Outdoor Handrail". Issues: 1) It is not Wrought Iron. Then again, almost no products are, the term is commonly misused. Appears to be mild steel. A magnet sticks to the base, posts, rails, brackets, end caps, and pedestal covers. The fittings for the rails' attachments are a non-ferrous alloy, perhaps zinc or other "pot metal" casting. 2) Packaging was Styrofoam, and was partly crumbled as received. Very messy and ecologically harmful. Some type of formed cardboard would be preferable. 3) Some of the holes were too small and needed to be enlarged. I used a 13/64" drill to fit the 5mm screws. Vendor refunded small allowance for the defect. 4) The aforementioned cast fittings had bad threads two locations, the screws stripped before even tightening. The fittings metal is weak. Probably drilling through and using one through bolt at each mounting (four total) would be more robust than the two individual screws at each mounting (eight total). Notes: I used conventional expansion bolts instead of the supplied anchor hardware. The posts are fairly sturdy. They will vibrate for a while if whacked. I added side braces for additional robustness. The rails are lighter gauge than the posts and reasonably strong. The hardware kit included one each additional of each type screw, nice. Also included was an decent quality adjustable crescent wrench, you'd pay a few dollars for at the store. Instructions were fairly clear.

Does the job at reasonable price.
Not as easy to install as indicated . Had to buy a second drill bit to finish. Took longer than expected. Does do the job intended at a reasonable price however. Not fancy but functional.

Very pleased with the purchase
I had placed an order for another hand rail, but they were late in shipping it, and I found this hand rail which was much more to my liking and the price was better. So, I purchased this hand rail, and couldn't be happier with my decision. I installed it, and like the extra security the second hand rail provides.

Installation was very easy on a pressure treated 5/4" deck. Shorter lag screws than supplied are necessary where it is not possible to hit a floor joist. Construction is sturdy and appears durable. Simple and attractive looking. Excellent freestanding handrail for the money.

The railing is exactly what we were looking for. We weren’t putting it over concrete but bolted it to our wood structure surrounding the steps. We found the railing to be easy to put together and to install. It fits perfectly in the space we needed and is a great help when going down and up the steps.

Solid, secure, nice looking railing
This is a very nice railing, especially for the price. You will have to measure your tread depth and height carefully as the railing can be adjusted only vertically - that's the reason I gave it only 4 stars. The masonry bit included was very helpful, and once installed onto stone steps and tightened down firmly, the railing is solid and secure. The metal surface is comfortable and easy to grip. Installation took about an hour and a quarter, an hour of which was drilling the 8 holes into stone.

We needed a new rail for our 3 step back entrance because our old aluminum one rusted away. I received the railing in 2 days and it was packages pretty well, just a few minor scuffs. This railing is exactly what we wanted. This fits perfectly and looks amazing. I will suggest though, as some others have, that the included hardware is not easy to use. First, the drill bit included is a square shank SDS-plus style bit. I could not find a drill to fit this style at Lowes, Home Depot, Harbor Freight or Hilti. The bit and anchors are metric(12mm) so couldn’t find a 12mm masonry bit anywhere locally and I didn’t want to wait another day. I opted to replace the anchors with some 3/8” wedge anchors from local hardware shop. This solution was easy to install and I am very pleased with my new railing. It will have no maintenance or paint so it’s the best option in my opinion, great quality rail. VERY sturdy. Also, Happy wife so this was great experience.
