Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good metal I flatten the metal out because I wanted to make a mold out of it and it worked but it was too thin for my project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sturdy and flexible construction helper. I bought the cap when I saw that after a tough winter the deck supports on the home I purchased begin to move off the beams. I have a wrap around deck that angles to the kitchen which was designed with 3 anderson sliders like a giant bay window. Standard decking doesn't work and to keep the post steady after lifting the deck a bit with a jack and re- centering I wanted a firm hold to join the deck and the post. I was able to flex the top of the post cap on one side so it followed the taper of the deck and set everything with decking screws. Nothing will move now and I am confident that I wont end up with a costly repair later or worse- a falling deck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updates I think this is an older image, because the 4X4 post cap that I just got at HD has less round openings and more triangles openings. I guess this means that you don't need as many connectors. I hope I never have to use these...they are for seismic retrofit application.
