Can u use this to support a fence post?

Asked by: Mikey
The Strong-Tie installation guide says the adjustable post base should not be used for fences: "Post bases do not provide adequate resistance to prevent members from rotating about the base and therefore are not recommended for non top-supported installations (such as fences or unbraced carports)."

Anchor bolts are sold separately. Each application is different and needs to have the anchor bolts selected for that particular application.

There isn't enough clearance for the head of the drill if you use the holed provided. Once installed they were super solid and worked perfectly!

Depending on the application, this might work better, but I needed to support a 4' 4 x 4 post for a fence and the post wobbles badly. I would not recommend this for a fence post on concrete.
