decking rails
 
My husband built our decking 4 years ago and is now putting up railings to stop our son falling off. He can do the railings fine but just want to know how we can strengthen it incase someone leans on them.

Not sure how anyone would know if we can not see it.
Post a picture please.

here is the awc pdf explaining in detail how rails need to attach, there are other ways but this reference is good...
