Customer Questions & Answers

Is this strong enough to use as a deck railing support?

Asked by: Anonymous
I would not use these for anything structural. I would consider an LUC24/LUC26 before using this for a deck handrail. Also, you could ask the pro-desk or go to Sipmson's website.

What kind of load carrying specifications does this hanger have? I'm building a loft bed that will have about 7 2x4 joists using these hangers.

I don't think these brackets would be a good choice. They are strong for building a fence, but I wouldn't us them for any load-bearing purpose.

How much space does this add to my design

I know I'm over planning this, and will definitely assemble a panel or two before digging all my posts holes, but how much space will these add between a pair of posts?
Asked by: Tim
Well, since this hanger is 20ga, and 20ga is about 0.0375", you would multiply that by 2 (one hanger on each end of a horizontal), and then multiply that by the number of horizontals you have (or multiply it by twice the number of fence posts you have and subtract 2 times 0.0375 since the very last fence post will only have a hanger on one side.)

FB 2 in. x 4 in. ZMAX Galvanized Fence Bracket is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from First time building a fence and used these to attach the rails to the posts. They're easy enough ... First time building a fence and used these to attach the rails to the posts. They're easy enough to install and use... but, as other have stated the heads of the recommended screws create a gap between the ends of the rails and the post/bracket. The gap is about 3/8". Not a huge deal but definitely not great. I wish I had used a router to notch the rails so that they would have fit over the screw heads to get them flush. The screw heads also get in the way when attaching the pickets/palings to the rail. I actually did notch the boards so that they fit over the screws better. The other issue is that the brackets aren't very deep so the screws that go into the rails are very close to the ends of the rails. Maybe 1/2" or less from the ends. I had multiple rails split... so that sucked. Still, unless this fence falls down in the next few years, I'd use these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fence Brackets I saw these a couple of years ago and picked up some. Wanted to make a fence using 6' cedar posts which I had on hand and 2x4s, I separated them by 10" on the post, makes a cheap 3 rail fence. Was in the store looking for them the other day, could not find them, as I need some more of them. Glad to see HD still is carrying them, they work great and am pleased with the fence I have created.
