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 post bases and brackets OWT does not require extra labor and materials to conceal them, saving time and money.

  • Can be mounted to concrete, wood, stone or oz-post (surface mounting hardware not included)

Customer Questions & Answers

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.

6 in. x 6 in. Laredo Sunset Post Base Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18.

These are sturdy and look nice. However, there is a design flaw. The four holes used for attaching the base to the concrete are not indented enough. Consequently, the top of the bold is higher than the top of the base (see photo). I contacted the manufacturer about this, but never received a reply (event though one was promised)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice way to secure posts to cement Product fit very well for intended purpose, however, the holes in the base plate to attach to cement need to be larger. I drilled them bigger to accept a larger lag bolt. They still worked out very well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6x6 post base Needed a support post for short railing on concrete porch to 2 step stair rail and this worked out great. It was easy to install and locks the post in place with a lot of style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product! I'm not usually one to go to the trouble of writing a review, but I just had to share how impressed I was with this post base and the clever design behind it! With all due respect, you should ignore the negative review previously given for this product; it mounts securely and easily to concrete with a 5/8" wedge anchor and the tab to slot assembly for the sides is appropriately snug and accomplished with a few taps from a rubber mallet. Well worth the price! I've added a photo from my actual installation for my patio pergola project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great easy to use quality product Easy to use excellent product. Looks good and is rock solid when in position. Very easy to place. I liked the flexibility in the fit, as no two posts are exactly the same dimensions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Pergola I didn't read any reviews before I purchased this product in March 2015. Perhaps I benefited from the previous comments to the manufacturer because I had no such difficulty as some others did. I found the product extremely easy to use and once completed my 6x6 posts were steady as a rock. I anchored each base plate with a 5/8" galvanized concrete wedge anchors (Red Heads), being careful not to drill through the thickness of the concrete, filled the drill hole 3/4's with 2-stage epoxy, hammered in the wedge anchor and allowed 48 hrs to cure, as was recommend for 65 degree temperature. i placed the 6x6 posts on the base plates, figured out the high and low sides of the posts and used shims to level the posts. Then applied the decorative plates to the other sides first, using a rubber mallet to snug the decorative plates in place, then rechecked the posts for level and applied the remaining screws, nuts and caps. In my opinion the post placement and leveling is a two (2) person operation. I'm very pleased with the ease of assembly, the sturdiness and the aesthetics of this product.
