Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Richard
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.

Customer Reviews

18-Gauge 2X Rigid Tie Connector is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4x4 to 2x6 connection Simpson Strong-Tie is the best solution for an engineered lumber connection. I used the double shear connector to secure the top of the 2x6 to the 4x4 too. Simpson Strong-Tie has a complete system of engineered hardware that allow simple superior connections versus traditional driving nails or toenailing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best connector Used 4 of these to raise an 8x9 platform that a 6x7x6 fort sat on. Very easy product to use and structure is stronger and more seure than a typical lag bolt system.
