Cap a Tread on open stairs

Hi, I have stairs that are open on both the right and left side.  I see Cap A Tread makes Right side and left side pieces, but what do you do in a case where they are both open?  I have railings on each side.

Hello sspeed, and welcome to the Community!

I have checked with Cap-A-Thread, and they don't recommend their product when you have both the left & right sides open, only if one side is open or neither side.

Hello sspeed and welcome to the Community.

On Home Depots web site for Cap-A-Tread, you will find to the left of the photo of the product, smaller boxes with small arrows in them. See an example below. 


These smaller boxes are installation videos.  One of these videos addresses your installation situation.  They state in the video, that if you have two open sides, (both left and right), that they do not recommend Cap-A-Tread for these installations. 

Thank you for your inquiry.
