I installed a small greenhouse and needed 6 of these brackets to build a footing for it to stand on. These worked well for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick The anchors were easy to place inside my burke tubes and anchored tightly. The hole lined up to allow a carriage bolt
The anchors were extremely easy to place and accepted my post

This post base worked great with the curled tabs at the base once the cement set it is not going anywhere

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dynamoteam3 Brilliant! this product was very helpful for our deck project, that needed a sturdy foundation
We built a deck off of our second story bedroom suite. We used 9 ' posts and had to attach them to concert footings. This product served that purpose very well. This post base is very sturdy, and was easy to install. We are confident that we will have a long lasting sturdy deck.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hedgehog Not recommended for non top-supported installations
Easy to use, but WOBBLY. I wasn't aware that these were a bad idea to use for a trellis until I I was half done with the build and noticed it swaying in the wind. The information posted here: "Not recommended for non top-supported installations" was not posted in my local Home Depot store where I purchased them. They were merely piled up in a torn-up box with a price tag below. If I wasn't a construction bone-head, I may have known better…. These are probably fine for whatever they're intended for, and they look sturdy, but for those doing fences, trellises, etc., they're not going to provide a very stable base.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Eric Make sure you read the description.
This is NOT for fences. Unfortunately, I failed to see that in the product description, bad on me. Something that looks like it's made for fencing and is available in the regular store (which is where I bought it) is definitely not for fencing. It probably works fine,, as the description says, if you use it for a carport or something, but for regular fencing, it's definitely wobbly- not solid at all. On top of that, it's only intended for pressure treated lumber- does not fit with cedar- meaning that you have to trim or sand the 4x4's before you put them in. Just be aware of what this product is and what it's not.

I used 12 of these in a support for solar panels. I was particularly concerned with the uplift forces, so I chose these. I live in Wyoming and the wind can be very strong. So far they haven't had to withstand more than 40 mph winds, but they didn't even shake in that. Simpson Strong Tie makes good products and this is no exception.
