Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good, strong and easy to use Works Great for Fence Building in Hurricane Zone, and can't be beat for the DIY's that don't have the extra help to hold lumber up in place while nailing the other end. Attach 2x4 hangers to post cut 2x4s to size and just slide it in the hanger, and attach with screws or nails. Makes one man fence building a Breeze..... April 30, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Splits Rails The product is simply to shallow and splits the rails. I do not understand how others gave this a good review as you cannot nail or screw a board 1/2" away from the end. Poor design. May 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best way to secure 2" x 4"s to 4" x 4" posts. These brackets are easy to install to 4" x 4" posts and then slot in and attach horizontal 2" x 4"s. If there could be any improvement, it would be to have the tongues on three sides come out slightly further, and to have two holes instead of just one on each side tongue. This is particularly true if the fence must slant upward or downward on a hill. February 3, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by This product is to shallow to securely hold a 2x4 rail on a fence. This product is to shallow to securely hold a 2x4 rail on a fence. The bracket is so shallow that 2 out of ever 3 screws or nails split the beam. November 23, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great features easy to order, product delivered within a few days and shipping was free. October 9, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Recommended Definitely recommend when building a fence. Makes putting up rails quick and easy. April 3, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My storage project was successful because of the hangers I was able to add strength and support to my garage storage project by using these joist hangers. They were easy to install and worked perfectly with the 2x4's as support braces. March 30, 2012
