This is a video of how we installed cable railing on our deck and saved a lot of money in the process by using common hardware store items. Kits to do this can cost hundreds of dollars, and we did it for less than $60 Tools: Drill 9/64" all purpose drill bit (to drill through bolt threads). If you flatten the threaded part of the bolt with a hammer a little bit, it makes it easier to drill and leaves a little more metal on the outside of your hole. 1/4" drill bit (to drill through posts for cable and for eyelet bolts) Forstener Drill Bit (pick a size that is smaller than the diameter of the bolt head you use) I believe I used a 7/8" or 1" bit. Bolt Cutters (for crimping cables ferrules) Fencing Pliers (for cutting the cable) Crescent Wrench (for tightening eyelet bolt nuts) Materials: should be able to find all of this at your local hardware store... 1/8" Cable Ferrules/crimping sleeves (pack of 15) 1/4" x 7-1/2" Steel Hook Turnbuckle with Aluminum Body 1/8" Galvanized Cable 1/4" x 4" Stainless Steel Eye Bolts 1/4"-20 x 1" Elevator Bolts 3/8" inside diameter-thick washers
