How to Install Base Shoes
When it comes to installing base shoes on your iron balusters, there are a few different options to consider. Most base shoes come with a set screw attached to the side of the shoe, which is designed to secure the shoe to the baluster. However, while the set screw can be effective at holding the shoe in place, it can sometimes cause a slight gap on one side as the screw pushes itself to one side. This gap is not necessarily a problem from a functional standpoint, but it can be visually unappealing to some people.
If you are concerned about the appearance of the gap caused by the set screw, you may want to consider using epoxy instead. Epoxy is a strong, flexible adhesive that can be used to securely attach base shoes to your balusters. It is also easy to work with, as it can be applied evenly and smoothly to ensure that the shoe is evenly spaced around the baluster.
To install base shoes with epoxy, simply apply a small amount of adhesive to the bottom of the shoe and press it firmly onto the baluster. Be sure to apply the epoxy evenly around the entire circumference of the shoe to ensure that it is secure. Once the epoxy has had a chance to cure, your base shoes should be firmly attached to your balusters and ready for use.
Using epoxy to install your base shoes has a number of benefits. In addition to eliminating the gap caused by the set screw, it also ensures that the shoes will stay securely in place for the long term.
Overall, using epoxy to install your base shoes is a simple and effective way to ensure that they are securely attached to your balusters and look their best. Whether you are installing new balusters or renovating an existing staircase, this is a great option to consider.
