Questions & Answers

Why does it say for 4x6 when interior of base is only 3.5" wide?

I purchased a cedar 4x6x8 from a local lumber yard to replace a support pole for my porch. Went to install this base and it only fits on about halfway and wont sit all the way flush into the bottom of the base. The width of the board is 3.75" which is about a 1/4 of an inch wider than the bottom of the base. Just trying to figure out if the board i got is not cut to the normal specs or what.
Asked by: Steve
Take circular saw and trim a blade width off the ends of the pole and it should solve the problem. It sounds like the poles you have are somewhere between nominal and actual. The base is designed to fit actual deminsions. Meaning the size of the board after it is planed. When the board is cut, it is cut to nominal dimensions, then planed to ensure uniform dimensions. The planed dimensions are called actual dimensions. Nominal sizes are used for sales and marketing. Actual sizes are used to ensure uniformity during construction.

can this be used for a base for a gate?

can this be used for a base for a gate?
Asked by: vIN
It probably could but I would rather bury the post in concrete to create a more stable support post.

3-1/2 concrete slap 5/8 too big and too long? the shortest anchor bolt I found 4 1/2 in STB2-62412

What's your recommendation for this? I want to use 3/8 x 3 STB2-37300 or 3/8 x 2 3/4 STB2-37234 Will it work? Thank YOU.
Asked by: KenW
It is up to the Designer to evaluate the condition (i.e. concrete strength, thickness, etc.) and specify the appropriate anchor bolt type, length and embedment. I'm sorry we do not have a solution to point to for a 3 1/2" thick slab. Thank you for your inquiry!

what is the attachment for stand off post base?

I'm using 5/8" J bolts but have failed to see anything mentioned/required/sold so that leaves size in question. I prefer too big rather than the suprise that comes with too small and 5/8" seems to fit. I'm in a class C wind area and am going 4x6 as I also have 100lb snow load and this is an unheated space so no reduction. 10 ft x 10 ft between post with 1 ft overhang
Asked by: TedV
The bases should be stamped with the recommended bolt size. Mine were 5/8".

At least when it comes to ABA 4 in. x 6 in. ZMAX Galvanized Adjustable Post Bases. I also have no basis for comparision, since i don't buy post bases every day. They do seem to be holding the posts up. I am pretty sure that is what they are supposed to do. Since they appear to be doing it about as well as any other post base can, i am giving it 3 stars for the moment.

The opening allows access to the bolt or nut so that lateral adjustments can be made after the post is installed, making it very easy to install.
