Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deb Easy to use
The pins fit into the pier block easily, without a lot of slop, to provide a solid hold. The bolt is easy to get to and to turn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tuffy 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...

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.

This product made it easy to level up my patio cover. combined with the Simpson strong Epoxy to anchor it, it should last for years

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnS Great product that does what it's designed to do.
I've used this product before and it's ideal for being able to adjust a deck that may start to settle. It works great and I'd recommend it.

This item worked exactly as intended. It allowed me to set the fence posts above the ground and yet they were stable.

Refurbishing a boat dock. Had to lift the deck up slightly to install new posts. Used this in the end of a 4X4 and lifted the deck. Worked like a charm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FarmGal Great for fine-tuning level on decks!
I have used these for years, and am VERY pleased with performance, ease of installation and adjustment, and versatility. I built 'floating' unattached decks on our home and my parents' place with these adjustable post/beam holders, and have been able to make occasional adjustments to level as needed in areas where ground settled slightly.
I have worked on mobile/manufactured home sets, and use a similar pier-building method. Clear away all vegetation down to undisturbed soil, scrape out a level area at least 16 inches by 16 inches, lay down a 16x16 by 4" thick concrete pad, set dry-stack pier of cross-stacked 8x8x16 hollow-core concrete block as needed to bring up elevation, cap with 2" thick concrete pad, add pier block and drop in the holder. (If you have problems getting your pier site perfectly level, you can dump some pea gravel in the hole, compact it, then set that first concrete pad and wiggle it a little until it is level.)
Just build up your level footing piers, add a pier block, drop in an adjustable holder (crank it down to the lowest possible elevation so you have room to go up if necessary,) and start setting your beams. Adjust the level as needed while you are working on the beam framing, and you are good to go! If you are building a ground-floor deck that would otherwise require support posts due to elevation, you can avoid posting by building piers and then carefully adding back-fill (soil or mulch) around the piers. (NEVER set piers on new, soft fill material!)
A big advantage of using these holders is that you are able to make repeated adjustments to level even tho working ALONE! It really helps when you don't have any help!
