code is vague

The UBC says a stair hand rail MUST return to the wall, newel or volute. My stair well is wall on both sides . One side chases out 1 1/2 inches. the other side is flat top to bottom. heres what I'd like to do. I want install a newel at the second step riser by lag bolt, ( bottom of stairs )then I want to install a turn over over the newel. At the top I want to plainly return the rail to the wall. Is this desription appear to meet code?

Re: code is vague

I assume that you meant a turnout.

Yes, this is in compliance.
