"I use the Universal Stair Bracket to save time and lumber. It's fast, it's easy and it works.
"I simply use a marker to highlight the rise/run marks already on the bracket, line the marks up on the stringer, screw the bracket in and repeat.
"When I work with composite lumber, my maximum space between joists is 16
inches. With the Universal Stair Bracket, I can run third and fourth inside stringers. With other products I don't have that option. On 48-inch wide stairs, I need this feature, one stringer at 0, number two at 16-inches, number three at 32-inches and number four at 48-inches. Try that with other brackets."
