Answer: 
The screws are included. Not sure what you're asking regarding 4x4 legs but they would have to be freestanding inside the corners of the brackets. It's plenty sturdy with the 2x4

Answer: 
Jaabwash,
The connector in the kit (RTC2Z) is specfically sized for 2x vertical members (2x2, 2x3 or 2x4); it will not accomodate a 4x4 leg. The SD8x1 1/4" strong-drive screw is included in the kit to fasten this connector, as well as #6x1 1/4" flat-head screws and #6x2 1/2" flat-head screws for other fastening requirements. http://www.strongtie.com/products/DIY/WBSK.html.

Answer: 
I don't think it's galvanized but you could prime and paint the brackets first, then it would be fine. Also, use pressure treated wood for outdoors.

Answer: 
The connectors in the kit have the Z-MAX (galvanized) finish on them which provides a medium level of corrosion protection and can be used in many outdoor applications. Please see the Corrosion section of our website for complete information and for the recommended finish based on your conditions. Thank you!

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value and simple to use Great cost effective way to create storage shelving. June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product Strong material, include all parts needed and directions with tips for the type of working table you want. I'm happy with my final product. I don't give the five stars as the local store didn't call me after arrival for pick up. September 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Versatile and easy to use These kits are easy to use to build just about anything that uses 2x4 lumber. I used it to build a 4'x8' chicken coop, where the bottom part is the chicken "yard" and the top level is where the nest boxes and roosting pole will be. The kit included everything I need to put together both the "ground" level of the chicken yard and the floor of the "upstairs" level. Note that most projects and pictures of this kit show the hangers being used with the straight edge on the upper side, but for the coop, these had to be reversed on the ground level so that the straight edge is parallel to the bottom of the 2x4s (as you can see in the photo). I wasn't sure if they would be quite as strong mounted this way, but the entire structure seems very solid. I do a lot of carpentry and considered making the coop without this kit, but after doing some project planning and comparison shopping I realized that the kit is really a good value for what's included, and it's a great way to assemble a sturdy project in short time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by well worth the price with these shlving brackets i was able to construct an 8ft. tall by 7'6" long ,5 shelf unit for storage in my garage in under 2 hours using 2x4 lumber. this is strong enough and stable enough to hold all the "stuff" that i had just laying around the garage. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Still a great product This is my third opportunity to build a workbench and use Home Depot's shelving kit. It makes the job go smoothly and quickly. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everything You Need This is a great kit. We recently moved here from another state and I wanted a workbench for the garage. After looking at several prefab units, I came across this kit and after downloading and looking over the assembly instructions from the Home Depot website (PDF file), I ordered it. All of the hardware is included in the box and the instructions include measurements for the lumber. I had the 2x4s cut to size and found the exact size plywood and pegboard pre-cut. I took the kit and the lumber home and got to work. I completed the project a few minutes at a time over two or three days, but could probably have finished it in a couple of hours or so if I'd done it all at once. About the only thing that could be improved is a listing of which screws are to be used for each section, but it wasn't hard to figure out, based on the number of screws received. I think it turned out great. I mounted a power strip to the side, added a vice and stuck an old reading lamp on the top. It's more solid than any prefab I could have bought and it meets all my needs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simpsons Strong Tie Work Bench Mounts Hi this Product is awesome, Dana at Special Services was very helpful, and curtious , loving her job and customers and employees she works for I give her 5 Stars. From Tony of Escondido February 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by One piece was missing I used this product numerous times before to build shelves and workbenches. The only problem was one of the kits was missing a piece. Since I ordered online in was less hassle to just buy the missing piece than to return the kit for exchenge. February 10, 2016
