Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bruce Easy to install, looks great.
This product is very easy to work with and very quick to install. I have a typical garden about 16' X 10' except that one corner has the telephone and cable towers located in it. I was able to easily construct an angled corner so that for any service needed at the towers the technician would have easy access. You can see the angled corner in the photo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vicki Frame-it-all Anchor joints for raised beds
I have used these anchor joints and the stacking joints to built several hundred square feet of raised beds in my garden. I love the ease of using them...just pound in the first stake, place the 2x6 side and end wood pieces in (the length is up to the user), and frame up an entire raised bed. Easy and convenient! The angles are adjustable, so the work well with odd-shaped garden areas. I just wish they were available in-store, as well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by greenp Product weak plastic
I ordered 8 of these anchors. A couple of the plastic pieces broke off when placing them in the ground. I found that they were not very strong too. I ended up pulling them all out and finding another method. I would not recommend purchasing these. Go with right angle metal brackets or straight metal brackets instead. Nothing to go wrong with traditional materials

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyGardner Very simple to use
I loved it because I was able to make my flower beds myself. Just buy to boards and slip into the slots. They were easy to pound into the ground and held up to the hammer. Also it is really nice that they can be at different angles. My flower bed looks great and was little effort.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mastgardnr easy to put together. works as described.
I had bought a set last year and I liked them so much that I bought another set this year. I put together my box without any help in a less than a half an hour.(I am a senior). I expect to buy more sets as I continue my vegetable garden project. i like the fact that it is flexible for anyone's choice of design. Unlike most things today ot is not flimsy and a really good value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shriekback Easy right angle corners the first time.
Great garden bed design solution for those who can't resist plumbing and leveling other people's picture frames. Quick right angles the first time - every time.
Beware shipping time. Check on availability before placing order. Took over a month to receive vs. 7 to 10 days as advertised.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYmom Versatile product for building any kind of border
These joints are very clever. You screw the joint onto the end of the composite FrameItAll boards (or any 2x6 board), pound the anchor stakes into the ground and then just slide the joint over the stake to create you border. You can use the stacking joints to add multiple levels for gardens, playground areas, etc. We used the first level to hold back a few inches of ground since we had an uneven surface and then added a second level to hold the wood mulch. I read other reviews and definitely agree with one thing - if you have rocky, very compacted soil it works best to pound a 1" metal stake down a bit deeper than you need the FrameItAll stake and then remove that stake and pound the FrameItAll in its place. The plastic stake will take enough of a beating to get it into softer ground or a premade hole, but they break when trying to drive down into rocky soil. Also, plan for a couple breaking during installation if you have hard soil and order an extra set to save yourself time later! My only complaint on quality is that the 1" screws that are provided with the joints easily strip out the composite timbers if you're not careful when you're screwing them in. If you use a power drill (recommended) instead of a hand screwdriver be careful not to go past the tight point.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jedweasel Great Product for beginners
I bought 4 (2-Packs) Enough to make 2 rectangles or an Octagon. These joints work with 2X8 dimension lumber as well as 2X6. I used 8 footers because they fit in my car. This is a very economical way to start your raised bed gardening project.
