Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by APop 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Garth Decent anchor, but not Truly for 4X4 posts!
I asked the HD associate for a post anchor for a 4X4" post. He looked it up and got me one of these units. The first line in the description says: "Allows easy installation of 4 in. x 4 in. wood posts on existing concrete". However, if you look closely at the product specifications, it specifies the width as 3.825". According to my measurements, the inside measurements will accommodate a 3 3/4" post at max. As you may know, finished lumber is often referred to by their nominal sizes rather than the actual size. Often fence posts referred to as 4X4" are really a finished size of 3.5". As my fence posts have an actual measurement of 4X4', I had to cut the base of my post to fit. I did not find a post anchor to actually accommodate a true 4x4" post.

Perfect for mounting a mailbox on my sidewalk. The only drawback is that the newly-purchased 4x4" post would not slip into the opening. I had to turn it upside down and drive it on with a hammer, padding it with a piece of wood 2x4. That took me a full 30 minutes, as it went on only a tiny fraction of an inch at a time.
However, once it is installed, it is very secure. I caulked around the edge to prevent rainwater from seeping in and causing it to deteriorate (as did the one I was replacing). I'm very satisfied with the finished product. It is of much better quality than my prior base.
BTW - - I am a 76 year old woman with a disabled husband and do much of my own handiwork around the house.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doctordan Great poduct to use where you are unable to dig a footer.
Used this product on top of an existing deck where new fence was to be located. I wouldn't use this 4" x 4" base on a fence taller than 4' tall due to wind loads. This saved me a lot of time and money not having to tear up old deck.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leslie E-Z Base
I used the E-Z bases to make a balance beam for my granddaughter, they worked great. Only problem I have is the local Home Depot either no longer carries them, or they have moved them to a different location and the associates are unable to locate them. They would be great to use to build a fence on my patio.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MauiJoe Made attaching 4 x 4x 8ft post on to cement a no brainer.
Aloha, happened to see these on the Home Depot website as I was trying to find something to attach a 4 X 4 X 8 ft post to cement. BTW they are dark green, I was only able to get 5 of the ten I needed at the local store, so ordered another 5. when I got to the store they discovered they had two more, inventory control, a little sloppy. I ordered the five on parcel shipping, no charge for shipping, I guess they include it in shipments to the store, but I was surprised when they delivered to my house. Great, didn't have to drive to the store to pick them up. Used a Black and Decker heavy duty corded drill. and a 3/8 masonry bit, of course drilling into cement a not the easiest thing to do. Discovered that the holes in the base were not exactly correct, but buy tying each position I found a close fit to the bolts( I used 3/8 x 3in anchor bolts). The 4 X 4 slipped easily in the base and tightened the clamp bolts and have a solid post for mounting a 2 X X 20 ft board to three posts.

Built a lumber storage rack, using EZ Brace to anchor vertical piece to bottom horizontal. Having two upside down T's, I then spaced 2"x4"x 2' and 2' apart horizontally down each of the inverted T's main vertical 4x4's and laid the lumber across them. EZ Brace gave me the strength I needed, without a whole lot of elaborate bracing.
