    Installing a railing-No current holes in concrete

    I am almost done with my complete pool rennovation.
    One of the last things I need to do is to install my S.S. handrail at my 6' wide stairs.

    Here is the issue:
    There are no holes in the concrete to recieve the two end pipes.
    Can I....
    #1 Simply drill the holes at the correct location and call it done-or do I need to install some type of anchor in the drilled holes?

    #2 Manufacture a S.S baseplate with two reciever pipes sticking up to hold the rail, and mount that to the top of the concrete .

    #3 Other method I have missed.

    Don't forget that the railing needs to be bonded.

    There are surface mount anchors ... 003=906191
