Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Hanger! First time I have used these, but will definitely be my go to stringer attachment in the future! March 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Built two set of stairs for a 4' high deck and it was unbelievably easy, fast, secure, and meets code! I'm shopping now for 3 or 4 more for the rear stairs. Great, great product. Highly recommend! October 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use.... Inexpensive too. My wife and I just added deck stairs and these were a breeze to use. Can't beat the price either. October 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Heavy gauge - uses less nails This hanger is a heavier gauge which requires less nails to install. Definitely would use again on my next project. September 17, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not for low stairs! This bracket is not practical to use on most low stairs such as those on a deck. The bracket has to nail to the back (top) end of the stringer then you bend it towards the underside of the stinger and nail it in place so be sure you can gain access to the underside of the stairs with hammer and nails!!!! I would pass on these unless I was building a full set of stairs in a home or something to this extent. July 26, 2012
