Awesome

I love my Rail-EZ. It's perfect for my umbrella. Love the way you can put the umbrella on the inside or the outside of the railing.Love it so much that I got 2 more for my daughter to put up an awning over her deck.

Perfect!

I couldn’t be more pleased... Julia and Drew were extremely helpful and responsive in helping me figure out how to properly set up for my unique application… a sail shade on top of a ten foot high observation platform.

Jeff - August 2022

Easy to install, very sturdy

I have a small, windy deck in San Francisco and this has been a great solution. It was very easy to put on my deck rail and the umbrella works perfectly. I am recommending this product to several friends as well.

MOST Frequently Asked Questions

What Is the Rail-EZ NextGen and how is it different than the original?

Since its debut in 2019, Rail-EZ has revolutionized how our customers put their railings to work, with thousands of units bringing satisfaction to our customers. But we didn't want to stop there.

Why the change? Simply put, we believe in inclusivity. While the original Rail-EZ was a hit, we realized it didn't fit every need. Our customers faced challenges with:

- Round railings

- Smaller railings

- Uniquely shaped railings

This inspired us to innovate

The result? Rail-EZ NextGen is a redesigned solution that fits even more railing types. Get ready to experience the ultimate railing solution reimagined for everyone!

What size railings can the Rail-EZ fit on?

The Rail-EZ NEXT GEN can fit railings widths between 1-1/2" and 6" (3.8cm to 15.24cm) and thicknesses between 5/8" and 2-1/2"(1.6cm to 6.35cm)

The Rail-EZ ORIGINAL can fit railings widths between 1-5/8" and 6" (4.12cm to 15.24cm) and thicknesses between 7/8" and 2-1/2"(2.22cm to 6.35cm)

Check out our handy FIT GUIDE to see in more detail. 

Does Rail-EZ work on a completely round railing?

Rail-EZ Next Gen will work on a completely round railings but you need to pair it with the with bottom bracket to stop rotation

See HERE for more information

How big of a pole can fit in the Rail-EZ?

The Rail-EZ will hold a pole up to 1 1/2” (38mm) to a minimum diameter of 5/8”.
If you pole is larger than that it will not work in the Rail-EZ 

How big of an umbrella can I use?

You can use umbrellas up to 10 feet in size, but it's important to note that the size of the umbrella you can use is ultimately determined by the size of the pole. The Rail-EZ system can accommodate poles up to 1.5 inches in diameter. For umbrellas larger than this, we advise using the system in its "extended" position along with the bottom bracket to ensure stability and fit.

Won't a strong wind rip my umbrella off my railing - twist, torque and wreck my railing?

We tested the Rail-EZ under extreme conditions and the system is designed to release before it would ever damage your railing SEE TESTS HERE 

However, it is important to understand is that the Rail-EZ is not a solution to keeping your patio umbrella up in the wind :)  As with a traditional patio umbrella stand or base, it is advised that you remove your umbrella in high winds.

How much wind can a typical patio umbrella take and how does Rail-EZ compare?

Most umbrellas have some type of base, in which the pole sits. The base adds more support and keeps the upper portion of the umbrella from tilting to one side. Most outdoor umbrellas cannot withstand the pressure from a 20 mph wind. We did tests and a traditional umbrella stand took about 7.5 pounds of pressure before it tipped over- The same umbrella in the Rail-EZ took about 23 pounds so it can withstand about 3x the weight or wind velocity. We've done a lot of tests and were able to put 23 lbs of side pressure at the top of a standard umbrella pole before the Rail-EZ flexed enough to release from the railing. In comparison, a standard 45 lbs base can only take 7.3 lbs before the umbrella and base fall over.

Will this work on aluminium railings as well as wood?

Yes, The Rail-EZ works on all types of railings, even ones you buy at home improvement stores, such as "Regal Railings".

Check out our handy FIT GUIDE to see in more detail. 

Easily attach umbrellas and more to just about anything!

The Rail-EZ mounting system is a great alternative to the traditional heavy, bulky patio umbrella stand or base. The mounting system is designed to safely and non-permanently mount your umbrella to your patio, deck, or balcony railing and it’s fully adjustable so it can work on most railing sizes and types.
