Customer Questions & Answers

When this is embedded in concrete, how is it adjustable?

Asked by: Anonymous
They only go in cured concrete. There is a completely different product for doing that.

Can the EPB44PHDG be used with concrete pier blocks without set epoxy?

Planning on using 6 sets of the concrete pier blocks with these post bases but not sure if the nut and washer would be sufficient to hold up a 10x12 deck without epoxy.
Asked by: chinnokyo
I would not use epoxy in case you want to adjust the height in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what was needed used these to support 4x4 posts for a carport that was built on very rocky and uneven ground subject to frost heave in Michigan's UP. inserted the 3/4" threaded rod through 2 layers of 2x8 placed on top of a concrete half block which had been dug into the ground. made the proper height adjustment simple and easy and if the ground heaves I can easily handle several inches of movement. well made item. expect to use more on other other projects as well. very pleased with this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like a charm! I used this to shore up a sagging deck. The ability to use a crescent wrench to slowly work the deck back to level was easy on the back and the mind. I highly recommend these for this purpose. They fit perfect on a pressure treated 4x4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these things! Pier blocks have always required a high degree of accuracy in regards to setting proper depth to achieve a level finished product. Now, I just dig the pier block into the ground, setting the height within about 1 inch or so of level with each other and then fine tune the proper height via the adjustable hardware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, adjustable, easy to work with product When expanding the deck, I tried this approach using 12X12 concrete blocks with this product. It made the leveling so much easier and at the same time distribute the weight better than digging a small hole. I just wish I used this method earlier...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whether you are starting a project or adding support to an existing structure, either way these are vital. I have used these for years as the basis for any substructure. Don't even know why they bother making the non adjustable type. No shims, no errors. Adjustable at anytime in the future. Perfect.
