Lock Ring Connections

     The rails are held securely in the post with plastic lock rings that do not fail as easily as the 'punched tab' type of connections. The punched tabs usually break quite easily with any pressure.
     Squeeze the lock ring to install it into the predrilled holes and it will 'bounce' out into the holes. Then by inserting it into the prerouted holes on the posts, the ring will 'pop' out to prevent removal of the rail, holding it firmly in the post.
