Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by These are needed to make the deck railing that we ordered. These kits made it easy to install the posts for the railing, however, some of the posts were warped and somewhat wet, and had a bit of mold on them. Was not a problem though as the posts were covered up with a plastic sleeve. May 19, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good brackets, junk wood So top-mounting either rail posts or columns is kind of a bad idea anyways, but if you must, the brackets are pretty beefy. The included 4x4 stubs are tapered way to strong, like flopping in the bracket. I tossed those and started over with PT 4x4, shaved about 3/16 off each side, beveled the edges, and slammed the bracket on tight with a small sledge. These were intended for a rotted column job where tying into the porch frame was not a possibility. Worked out fine, its really the brackets you want- which are outrageously expensive. For a railing application, I'd still much rather go the conventional route and tie into the frame as opposed to top-mounting rail posts. June 4, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not use this product. The kit seems great, the base installs easily and squaring the post is pretty simple. Then you have to install the lower rail. The cutout in the base to allow wood screws to fasten to the post are too small and in misplaced. This means that you have to drill out every hole for the bottom rail. To make things even more fun the buckets are designed for the screws to be driven in at an angle. So when you try to drill the holes in the right place the brackets and sleeve gets all chewed up. Veranda thought of solution to the problem and supplies self-tapping screws which are too cheap and do not work. A 3-4 hour job has stretched to over 12 and still not done. Save yourself huge headaches and use a different system. May 21, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Product w/ Modification First off, the only nice thing about this bracket kit is the bracket, itself. Out of the several that I have used for other Veranda products, I had to return 2 for poor craftsmanship of the 4 x 4 post. Further, the bracket itself does not lend itself to a 3.5" lower rail installation, as when you drill through the post sleeve, you will hit the bracket's metal (which you can drill through). I also recommend to through away the accompanying bolts/screws, as they are junk - not to mention, the washers that come with this will not allow a lower trim piece to sit flush with your deck/concrete. Do yourself a huge favor and purchase the Red Head 3/8" x 3" wedge anchors and your installation will be a breeze (quicker install and washers are not too big). You may have to buy a smaller wedge anchor depending on the hole (or be prepared to enlarge the mounting plate hole). April 1, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Decent Brackets I purchased 7 of these for a front porch project. Of course the last one opened did not contain the mounting bracket or bolts. The bracket is of high quality sturdy construction. The post could be better. The end that slides into the bracket could have a better fit. my posts had over 1/4" play side to side. I understand that shimming is required to square up the post, I don't think that over 1/4" is required. The concrete bolts and washers were acceptable. If the washers are not pushed inward towards the center of the post, the trim piece I used would not fit down over them. When the trim piece fit over the washers, it still had approximately 1/8" gap to the concrete floor. Certainly a bead of caulk will fill the gap. I am of the opinion that the less caulk used the more professional the job looks. October 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hardware for Concrete The post and bracket worked perfectly. However, I had quite of bit of difficulty with the anchor bolts. Had to go and get a different type of anchor at the store that worked better for my application. September 22, 2013
