How to Install Base Shoes on your Iron Balusters
Installing base shoes on your iron balusters requires careful consideration of your preferred method. Most base shoes come with a set screw on the side, designed to secure the shoe to the baluster. While the set screw effectively holds the shoe in place, it can sometimes cause a slight gap on one side, which may be visually unappealing.
If you prefer a more seamless appearance, consider using epoxy instead. Epoxy is a strong, flexible adhesive that securely attaches base shoes to balusters and is easy to work with, allowing for even and smooth application.
To install base shoes with epoxy, follow these steps:
- Apply a small amount of adhesive to the bottom of the shoe and to parts of the shoe that will sit near the baluster.
- Press it firmly onto the floor, ensuring even distribution around the entire circumference to lessen any visible gaps.
- Allow the epoxy to cure, and your base shoes will be firmly attached to the floor / balusters, ready for use.
Using epoxy offers numerous benefits, such as eliminating the gap caused by the set screw and ensuring long-term stability.
In conclusion, using epoxy for base shoe installation is a straightforward and effective way to achieve a secure and visually pleasing finish. It is an excellent option for both new baluster installations and staircase renovations.
