Zip Clip Shoes for 1/2" Hollow Iron Balusters

Zip Clip Shoe Dimensions

Flat Shoe = L 1-1/2” x W 1-1/2” x H 1-1/4”
Pitch Shoe = L 1-1/4” x W 1-1/4” x H 2-1/2”

Zip Clips offer an easy alternative to the typical solid iron baluster and hollow iron baluster installation! No more drilling and cutting holes in your stairs to fit the baluster! Simply line up and drill into place the top and bottom metal base, lock the baluster into the top and bottom, and slide the shoe to cover!

Each Zip Clip package comes with two adjustable shoes and is designed to work with one hollow iron baluster, providing a metal base and slide-on shoe for both the top and bottom of the baluster. For more information, or for a detailed look at Zip Clip shoe installation for hollow iron balusters, please watch the video below!

NOTEThe set screw will require a 2.5mm hex key (Allen wrench) to tighten.

Not for small orders

Purchased 4 zip clips and 4 metal balusters. Total order was $40. Shipping cost was $68! Can’t remember if I used Apple Pay or PayPal at checkout, but the shipping wasn’t clear until you made the purchase. On top of that, I made the error of purchasing the wrong zip clips… there is a 25% restocking fee! Coming and going…. Not the best way to have returning customers. I won’t be.

Hey Jim,

I'm sorry for the late reply here! The Zip Clip shoes ship directly from the manufacturer, which is why there are higher shipping costs on orders like this due to the need for two separate shipments (one for the Zip Clips and one for the balusters). We're certainly able to handle smaller orders, but being a small business there are higher handling costs compared to a larger box store or something like Amazon. Due to the delay in our response, I've gone ahead and issued a full refund for the four packs of Zip Clip shoes. Apologies for the issue here, but I appreciate the constructive feedback!

Best regards,
Tom B.

High Quality

Very well made parts!! I like that they are metal as opposed to the ones they sell in Home Depot, which are plastic.

They did the trick and exactly what we needed to finish our staircase project.

Like a pro.

The zip clip shoes made me look like a professional. Very easy to install and I received so many compliments. Intimidating at first but then a piece of cake. Thank you.

Staircase Renewed Lide

Purchased the twisted iron (previously wood spindles). Easy to install with basic tools. Take your time installing. Most importantly use your level. Staircase looks awesome!
