Customer Questions & Answers

how deep should the 10"x10" cement pier be to accommodate a 6' or 7' fence?

Asked by: Burly
I've used this bracket on 5 and 6 foot fences for years. Posts are attached with large bolts, washers and nuts. Have to retighten bolts once in awhile. Better than a rotten post. Wish I could attach an image to show you.

Can this column base be used to hold a 4"x4" post for a swinging gate? The post will be 5' high and the gate 6' wide.

Asked by: Phil
The CB44 is only rated for vertical loads. It is not intended for non-top supported installations or to take the forces associated with a gate. We do not have any bases designed for gate applications. Thank you!

Galvanized Column Base is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This column base was perfect for installing into concrete on... This column base was perfect for installing into concrete on my hillside to support a stairway up the hill. The soil on the hill erodes easily, so needed to dig a fairly deep hole in which to pour the concrete and insert the column base and 4x4 beam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy duty These are very heavy steel. Probably over kill for something like a deck, but perfect for a room addition or shed/garage/cabin type structure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well built even though I have a lowes down the road from my house I will drive the extra miles to buy this bracket. I don't like doing things twice. just the shear thickness of these brackets and the use of lage bolts shows that the manufacturer was making these to stand up to anything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very strong post base This is a heavy gauge steel post base unlike some of the thinner ones HD sells. I've seen many of these type and was pleasantly surprised on how solid they are. They usually don't stock it in the stores so figure a few days lead time when ordering online.
