I'm looking to attach 2 half bases around a square vinyl post that is 6 1/2 inches wide. Would this be large enough?

No, the product is only 5 1/2 inches. You can however purchase two 90 degree plates to allow for a wide post.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Designed for 6X6 post (5.5X5.5) but too small. When you are replacing rotten support posts, you have to move quickly. So trying to squeeze a post into these is a headache. I suspect a seasoned 6X6 might fit better, but these posts are not given time to season, so the base has to spread to accommodate. At over $11 each, I expect better. August 30, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great product / over priced The product works great. I did have to drill additional holes for better screw placement to secure it, but this was quick and easy. It is thin, yet strong and easy to cover with trim. Finding the same product later at a hardware store for half the price was frustrating. August 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product These brackets were used in the repair of a 16"X14" wooden deck. They made fastening 2"X6" very simple and quick! July 22, 2014
