James, not sure if I got around to thank you, but after a year of use I have to say that the stair ropes we purchased from you have been absolutely excellent, strong, hard wearing and look good. Really good product and service, thanks very much.

Hello James
Here are a few photos from the project I just completed in Lakebay, WA. My client loves the stairope...Please feel free to use the photos I sent when you update your web site. Am happy to write a testimonial as well. Your workmanship is immaculate. Here are a few more that show the other knot and the short run. Best, Anne

"I am the builder for Mrs. S. ..... I have just fitted her stair rope and I wanted to say what a superb quality and excellent piece of kit it was - very nice. Very easy to fit and the craftsmanship was very good indeed. I would certainly recommend you to other clients I deal with and hope to install more of your products. I was blown away with the sheer craftsmanship and just wanted to leave a message to say thank you very much indeed."

Rope Bannisters on 4 floors, Middlesex

J. Roberts, Brentford

Dear James,
just to confirm that the ropes duly arrived on Tuesday and I fitted them yesterday. We are delighted with them. The short one in particular looks spectacular and goes perfectly over the two steps leading up from our bedroom to our bathroom. I think we'll be coming back to you for more!
...just to confirm the ropes arrived safely on Friday and I've fitted them all. We now have ropes on the stairs between all 4 of our floors and they look really good and are a pleasure to use (just the right thickness and grip). Several visitors we've had have been most impressed! We will certainly recommend you to anyone who's interested in ropes. Incidentally, many thanks for marking the ropes: it would have been very easy to put them in the wrong places!

Custom Stair Rope Handrail, Finland

I. Luoto & A. Koski, Hameenlinna, Suomi (Finland)

Shipment arrived OK. Finished installing today a bit more work than thought but now know all the tricks. Installed the retaining screws last so got the rope tight, Installing last was a bit tricky but that is the only way to get the rope tight and also installing the last bracket last. The end result was better than thought. Also my measurement of the rope length was perfect. Attached are some quick pictures... I think you were the one for the best solution for this instalation, not a simple one... Thanks I. and A.

C. Smith, Guildford

Dear James,
stair ropes are now safely installed and looking very good. They feel good and sturdy, giving confidence when walking up and down the rather steep stairs; just what was needed and complemented nicely by the newly fitted stair carpet.
The impact when entering the cottage is good and happily sets the scene.
Many thanks indeed.

Many thanks - safely received soon afterwards, but it took me a while to get round to installing it. The result is fantastic - we're very pleased with both the appearence and the stability of the new rope handrail.
