Questions & Answers

will a true 6x6 post fit in this or will I have to trim it down to 51/2"?

Asked by: marv
the 6x6 posts I purchased fit well in it
Answered by: Sally
Date published: 2016-11-28

Does this with stand rust?

Is this comparable to galvanized steel? Will it ever rust or corrode? There is no information on this! The specifications only says it 'Steel'.
Asked by: Kart
No, this is not rust resistant.

Can you use a bolt?

Can we use a through bolt along with nails to secure the 6x6 post on this base? If yes what size (diameter) will it take?
Asked by: Kart
The EPB66 is only intended to be installed with nails (16d common - 0.162" diameter x 3 1/2" long). The larger hole is a pilot hole used in the manufacturing process. Thank you!
