Questions & Answers

Will this fit a true 6x6 inch post.

Will this fit a true 6x6 inch post.
Asked by: waywin
Yes. Actually, I used it for a 6x8 rough cut Douglas Fir post, with 1" overhang on the open sides.

What is the difference between this one and the one at http://www.homedepot.com/p/Simpson-Strong-Tie-ABA-6-in-x-6-in-ZMAX-Galvanized-Adjustable-Post-Base-ABA66Z/100375370, which look identical, but the only differences seem to be the word "rough" (this one) and the prices?
Asked by: skaizun
The ABA66Z is sized for a nominal 6x6 (5 1/2" x 5 1/2" actual) where the ABA66RZ is sized for a rough 6x6 (6" x 6" actual). Thank you!

6 in. x 6 in. Rough Galvanized Adjustable Post Base is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.

The slot allows adjustment in one direction, so a little planning is need to use it to best advantage. Note that this base specifies a ⅝" anchor bolt, with no instructions for the more common ½" bolt. Also, I used this 6x6 base for a 6x8 rough cut post, as a base that size does not appear available. No info found on using it for other than 6x6.

My only problem is that some products from Simpson Strong Tie are definitely overpriced (supply & demand I guess). Of course, Simpson Strong Tie pretty much has the market on construction connectors.
