Product Overview

When it comes to attaching timbers, posts, joists and beams Ornamental Wood Ties (OWT) are the ultimate statement of style and strength. OWT hardware produces strong connections as well as enhancement to your project design, with a wide range of connectors and components you can use your imagination to build a project that is uniquely your own. All OWT Wood Ties are made with ultra heavy gauge steel and hot dipped galvanized after fabrication. The parts are then finished with an exterior grade powder coating for complete protection from corrosion. This makes them suitable for harsh environments and contact with ACQ treated lumber. OWT hardware is commonly used to construct pergolas, arbors, pavilions or decks but with a little imagination you can build an endless number of projects with OWT. Although OWT is designed to perform in outdoor environments it is equally functional for interior projects. OWT has also been engineered to make installation faster and easier with industry leading features and attachment techniques. Unlike conventional wood posts bases and brackets, OWT does not require extra labor and materials to conceal them, saving time and money.

Customer Questions & Answers

I understand the base plate is secured to the surface;

however, the post is not secured to the base plate. What will prevent it from moving if someone leans on the post?
Asked by: aswonka
There are 4 plates that fit onto the base plate, one each side of the post. Each plate is attached to the post with 2 screws. This locks the post in place.

I am building a pavilion, and will pour four cement piers for the post. Can I use these to attach to the piers, and post

The pavilion will be 10'H x 18'L x 16'W
Asked by: john
Yes, but the real advantage of these is to retrofit to existing surfaces. If you are pouring piers why not cast in your pier bases? Also, the size seems a bit large for (4) 4X posts. Those are some big spans. I would check the recommended footing specs for the structure you are planning

what prevents the post from moving once completely installed?

Good afternoon. I'm concerned that the post will move if someone leans on it. I will be securing the base to a new concrete patio. do the bolts hold the post in place to the base along with the tabs, forging a solid connection? I am a DIYer, and I'm probably over-thinkin' it, but why won't the post move?
Asked by: aswonka
Those four plates and the screws that screw them to each side of the post lock the post into position where you determine it is vertical. Before you put those plates and that post on, you mounted the bottom plate through 5 holes in that bottom plate with anchor bolt in center and anchor screws in the 4 surrounding holes of each plate. The plates are heavy thick steal, they are not cheap by any sense of the word. This is a very solid mounting design thoughtfully engineered. It impressed me.

4 in. x 4 in. Laredo Sunset Post Base Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from WOW! Great appearance, easy installation and very well made! Cons: I had to go to their website for installation instructions and a few side brackets were difficult to insert over the base tab due to incorrect sizing. The tabs were either to big for the slot to fit over or too lose and resulted in a lose fit of post installation. Pros: The kit is very impressive looking and well made with galvanized steel and powder coating. The functionality ideal is superb. With 2 weeks of my fence and gate installation, it's held up wonderfully and I've received many compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product These post bases are more intensive to install than most, but if you want a great looking, sturdy, long lasting post base you won't find a better product. Comes with all hardware except what is used to anchor it to the base, but this is better since different projects will require different hardware for this.

This is an excellent product,; what makes it is that I had an uneven concrete surface. The design compensates for this the way it is engineered. My posts were perfectly vertical and absolutely solid. It did exactly what I hoped it would do, and I am not an easy individual to satisfy.
