Customer Questions & Answers

will a veranda 4 X4 traditional vinyl post sleeve slip over this w/4x4 treated lumbber in it?

Asked by: bobh
Yes - it takes a little wiggling and messing with it but I was able to slide the veranda 4x4 vinyl sleeve down the post and over the ez base so that just the mounting flanges with bolts are visible.d

Can these be used to anchor on pre cast concrete steps?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. I used these as post anchors for railing. I used Redhead wedge bolts to attach.

Can these be installed on a brick porch?

Asked by: Slide
I wouldn't install on a brick porch, as you need to drill holes into your brick to set a long screw.

Will the 5" x 5" vinyl post fit inside this bracket?

The posts are advertised as 5 by 5 square. Are these the braces (>5" id) that will work?
Asked by: Sully
No, a 5x5 will not fit inside. I found that those measurements were for the outside of the bracket.

12-Gauge Black Powder-Coated E-Z Base is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from E-Z base Much easier to drill 4 holes than to make hole in patio to dig post hole.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from strong product bad design Amongts all the 4x4 post bases i found this was obviously the strongest one (it better be for the price) but jeez who design it exactly to be 4x4". A tiny fraction of more width would have made this product exceptional but i had to bang all 4 into my 4 posts. Because they were all too small to slide in. After hammering them in....i doubt theyll last long as the powdercoated was damaged and the metal exposed. For the price i expect a little more thought in the design. Its like you have to wish on your lucky stars that you get the perfect 4x4 that will slide into the base w minimal effort. Good product but i am afraid ill be replacing it in no time due to the hammering damage which was unavoidable in my case.

We attempted to use the base for a pergola project & could not slide the 4x4s in without either plaining the base of the post or hammering the base on. We ended up taking them back (except 2 that are stuck on the 4x4s). We ended up using Simpson Strong-Tie ABA 4 in. x 4 in. Model # ABA44RZ Internet #205227038. If you are looking for something more esthetically pleasing, I would get the pricey OZCO’s Ornamental Wood Ties or go to Lowes & try the USP Steel Painted Post Base Item # 53421 Model # BD.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rust! Rust! Rust! We bought these approx 2 years ago. We have them on our outside stairs holding up the railings. They are very sturdy. Unfortunately now they are completely rusted on the bottoms to the point that the area where u bolt them to the cement is literally crumbling. We bought a different style for our other set of stairs that are galvanized and they look brand new and were bought the same time as these. At the time these were $22 a piece and we bought several so you can imagine the disappointment to not only have to buy more but also rework the entire railing system again. Galvanized only from here on. Save yourself time and $ and don't buy these.

Needed to replace 4x4 posts on railings of back stairs...they had rotted and railing was unstable. After replacings some boards, used the EZ Base to secure new posts and they protect the 4x4's from elements

The only thing that I found is that the openings vary to fit a pressure treated 4x4. Sometimes too tight, sometime too loose. Otherwise, it is an excellent product!

Easy to install but made with cheap Chinese steel that broke after only 6 months. The wings at the bottom rusted and broke away during a moderate wind. Might work ok for a deck post but not for a fence..
