Product Overview

  • Designed to mount posts to concrete, stone or wood subfloors
  • Comes with all mounting hardware for ease of installation
  • Powder coated steel construction
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 post bases and brackets OWT does not require extra labor and materials to conceal them, saving time and money.
  • Fits all standard 6 in. x 6 in. from 5.5 in. up to 6 in. sq.
  • Can be mounted to concrete, wood, stone or oz-post (surface mounting hardware not included)
  • Includes hardware for attaching base to post for standard installations
  • 3/16 in. thick hot dipped galvanized and power coated steel
  • Raised base keeps wood post elevated from ground contact
  • Recommended for pergolas, decks, veranda posts, pavilions, arbors and railings

Lateral Strength

How well do these add to lateral pressure on the posts? I'm building a pergola but will need to finish the work in phases. Can these bases keep a 9' or 10' secure standing alone? Also I was going to buy some earlier this week and even had it sitting in my online cart. Now HD is out of online stock. Is more coming?
Asked by: Coastiepike
I had (4) 8 ft (6x6) standing with just these bases holding them up earlier this summer (2016) for about a week; no issues. We also did not have any significant weather during that period.

Will these work with a Rough Sawn 6x6 Post?
Asked by: Trey
Hi Trey. The 6" x 6" post base will work with posts from 5-1/2" up to 6". It will not accommodate anything over 6". Thank you!

6 in. x 6 in. Laredo Sunset Post Base Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36.

Easy to use and squaring up the posts was a cinch. Was even able to easily drill out the single middle hole for power and use the 4 smaller holes for anchoring to the patio on one of the corner posts. Pricey but time saving and finished look makes it worth while.

Sturdy post connection. Easy to install, aside from drilling into concrete - I used 4 in long, 3/8" concrete fasteners and hit rebar 2 out of 4 holes. Lucky, I guess. The only gripe I have is the price - but they sure are pretty...

The quality of the brackets was exceptional. Strong sturdy and great looking. Well worth the money. Easy to assemble great packaging and directions are included. So happy I went with these.

They securely hold the posts of our attached pergola. May not work as well for free standing pergola (?). Please consider, if you plan on having a railing system, you may have to modify this post base(?).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Happy The product looks great, and did the job it said it would do... It did not come with instructions for installation. But at the end of the day... I am pleased with my purchase. Much better than the alternative product.
