Product Overview

Post and Column Bases secure the bottom of posts or columns to concrete and are perfect for decks or patio covers. Models are available for attaching to existing hardened concrete, wet concrete, as well as wood. The BC series offers dual purpose post cap/base for light cap or base applications.

  • Provides a positive connection for a post to a wood deck
  • Stronger than angled nailing or screw fastening
  • Reduces the chance of the post splitting and eliminates nailing into end grain
  • Not recommended for non top-supported installations (such as fences or unbraced carports)
  • Made from 18-Gauge steel
  • Galvanized for extra corrosion resistance
  • Install with 16d common nails

I am planning to build a swing frame from 6x6. Would this work for that?

I am planning to build a swing frame from 6x6. Would this work for that?
Asked by: borzar2005
Thank you for your interest in our products, but we do not have any connectors intended for swing applications. Our products have not been evaluated with regards to the forces that a swing may put on them. Thank you!

Use with post sleeve.

Can these bases, or any base for that matter, be used if a post sleeve is installed? Model # 73018731 is the type of sleeve to which I am referring.
Asked by: Jordy
We have not evaluated any of our bases with post sleeves and do not have any information on how this might affect the installation. Thank you!
