How wide is it really?

Asked by EngineerJohn December 20, 2020
1
Answer

The Everbilt 5 in. Steel Zinc-Plated Mending Plate is 1 inch in width.

Will the holes fit a #4 screw?

Asked by Jake December 16, 2020
1
Answer

For the Everbilt 2 in. Satin Brass Mending Plate (4-Pack) we suggest using at least #5 screw, the best choice is #6 screw. A #4 screw will not fit since the hole diameter is larger than #4.

What's the length of the screws? Thanks.

You never know when you may need to make a repair requiring the use of a flat 5” length by 3/32” thick by 1” wide zinc-plated black mending plate but after picking up this 4-pack I am prepared for that occurrence. The product is intended to be used as a mending plate for reinforcement on surface joints, seams or cracks. Each plate comes with four pre-drilled and countersunk holes and even includes four wood screws per plate or a total of 16 screws. When the need arises I will be happy to know I can just grab them from the drawer and be ready.

Nice looking with flush screws supplied to match the finish, the hammered finish is very patterned but still looks good. The strap has a littler warp in it but will straighten when mounted. 8 inches true by 1 1/4 inch wide. 1 inch screws are supplied for the 4 mounting holes supplied. The screw holes are countersunk for a flush finish. My project i'm using this for decorative trim for a wood box for a theater prop. I'm not using the screws as i'm using a round headed brad too have the head raised.

More than just looks. I have a sagging cedar fence, the pole that is a problem is on my neighbors side and he doesn’t want to fix it. So I picked these up to strap across the sagging fence runs to reinforce things. They do the job, adding structure to the fence. Made of 1/8” thick steel with a heavy black coat of paint, they offer lots of strength. The kit includes matching black screws, but I needed some bigger screws, so had to replace those. Hope this adds a few years to the fence before I have to replace it.

Dry good looking finish. The paint quality and coverage is exceptional and will add a better look than traditional galvanized steel. It goes well with black fence hardware while surviving screw heads or lag bolts ring attached to projects. This line of fasteners would also be great for pergolas and large scale projects. Gates are probably the area that should frequently use these and right angles.

Large, sturdy mending plates from a trusted company. At 8 inches long, these would really do the job on larger applications needing a more sturdy solution. They’re great alone, but use one on each side for added strength. I can see this being used to repair a broken crossbar on a fence or adding strength to a shed door. The black hammered finish adds more style than the silver or brass versions. Add a trusted company in Everbilt and you have a winner.

Everbilt 5 inch Mending plate- This is a pack of 4 mending plates plus the hardware/screws necessary to install them. These are really nice heavy duty plates painted black with a high quality finish. Great for holding two pieces of wood together or to reenforce a special place. Love having them around the farm for last second fixes. These are probably the most heavy duty plates i have seen. A real quality product!

Strong set of straight mending plates. Their size and paint are great for decorative uses as well as, of course, strength. They come with 16 x 1" wood screws, enough for all four plates. They do scratch easily. Most of mine were a little scratched in the bag. One of the plates had an abrasion on it that I could not remove. It is hard to see from far away but easy when close up. They are made in China.

This is a pretty good mending plate. I used 3 for connecting wood sections for table top where I needed to maintain consistent gap between the sections. This is 14 gauge steel 4 opposing countersink holes for regular #8 wood screws. The plate seems to have been rust treated with a coating then primed and painted using something resembling powder coating. The press cut didn't leave any sharp edges, it looks like it was tumbled to remove all hazardous edges. All 4 were straight, without any curvature, protrusions or defects. The plate is thick and not springy, does not bend easy, and it is definitely not pliable. This is a great product and very well priced. Package comes well sealed, so online and bulk ordering is certainly an option.

The are great, straight mending plates are useful in a number of projects. Nothing innovative here except they are painted black with good quality finishes. This really helps make the mending plates lots of use (and try to hide) much better because they become a part of the visual appear of e project. The included painted screws are great, too, and I have had good luck with the color staying on the screw head unless you spin the bit in the screw. Be careful. I really appreciate he black finish versus the usual zinc plating./

The Everbilt 8 inch mending plates are great for reinforcing or repairing a straight or T-joint in a fence gate or other swinging door. The 8" length and 4 screw points allow the load to be spread out for good stability. The hammered black finish is nice enough, if you care about that sort of thing in a mending plate. There are countersunk holes to allow the mounting screws to fit flush.
