Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Must for my deck! I was looking for a product that would provide strong lateral support for 4x4 posts (approx 8' tall) that would be supporting fence panels on a deck. After searching online and at various hardware stores, these appeared to seat in the concrete the deepest and also have the highest bracing for the posts. See my attached pic for the final product. I was very pleased! July 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by post base for a simple post base where structual is not a worry and for the cost its perfect July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Made in the USA Simpson is the leader in this field, and they manufacture their products in the USA. Check out their website for an exhaustive product line to solve your connection problems. I am tired of getting stung with inferior products manufactured overseas (aka China) and I will pay a little bit more to support domestic manufacturing AND a superior product. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well designed and very functional, I have used Simpson products for years and they continue to deliver a very good product for the construction industry. May 9, 2014
