Customer Questions & Answers

Does this product accomodate a 4X4 vertical post to tie to the 2 2x4 horizontals?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, that is what I used to make my workbench. The 4 x 4 goes in the middle and the 2x 4's are the side rails.

Why arent these stocked in the stores?

Asked by: ThePoolWonk
They are stocked in some but not all of the stores local to me. I recommend checking the inventory through the Home Depot website at other stores in your area.

Can these be used at the top of a 4x4 post to hold (2) 2x8's on top of the post without having the 4x4 post continuing?

Asked by: deckbuilding1
Yes they can. These can be used to create flush mounting surfaces . If the 4x4 is to be used as railing supports, slide these down further along the post. Using a piece of scrap, slide the connector down the post until the 2x8 sits flush with the end of the 4x4. We used the recommended hex head screws (driver bit included) to make our connections.
