Indoor classic baluster is normally installed to use when walking up and down a staircase. Railings can be installed on the inside or outside of the stairs. You can buy a finished piece of rail from your local home improvement store or you can make one using a wooden post. However, wooden posts need to be firmly attached to the wall at a certain height.

Measure the diagonal thickness of the classic staircase with measuring tape. The diagonal thickness is needed because the stairway will be parallel to the staircase. Place the bracket in the corner of the angle bracket. Read the measurement on the angle bracket to find the height of the bracket. Put the measurements from steps 1 and 2 together. Subtract the result of 32, which is the height of the stair rail. This is the height of the bracket. Measure from the end of the step, called the nose, to the height of the bracket.
Make a mark on the wall with the pen. Repeat this step from the last step at the top of the baluster. Run a chalk line from one mark to the other. Snap chalk line to make a mark on the wall.
