I need a handrail on the wall of a narrow stairway that can be removed easily to transport furniture up or down the steps. Are there brackets that can be racheted off the wall instead of screws? Or 2 piece ones with flat base profile removing rail and sticking out part? Won't help if brackets stick out after rail is removed. Don't want to unscrew from wall or wood compromising stability.

@NiallC. - I don't think it's a duplicate; the other question was regarding a staircase with one open side. From the phrase "a narrow stairway", I'm guessing that this one is closed on both sides and needs a wall-mounted solution. Pics would help, of course. –  MT_Head Mar 15 '13 at 21:07
