When it comes to attaching timbers, posts, joists and beams Ornamental Wood Ties (OWT) are the ultimate statement of style and strength. OWT hardware produces strong connections as well as enhancement to your project design. With a wide range of connectors and components you can use your imagination to build a project that is uniquely your own. All OWT wood ties are made with ultra heavy gauge steel and hot dipped galvanized after fabrication. The parts are then finished with an exterior grade powder coating for complete protection from corrosion. This makes them suitable for harsh environments and contact with ACQ treated lumber. OWT hardware is commonly used to construct pergolas, arbors, pavilions or decks but with a little imagination you can build an endless number of projects with OWT. Although OWT is designed to perform in outdoor environments it is equally functional for interior projects. OWT has also been engineered to make installation faster and easier with industry leading features and attachment techniques. Unlike conventional wood post bases and brackets OWT does not require extra labor and materials to conceal them, saving time and money.

Good product, thick, heavy, seems very strong. A bit difficult to install "plumb and square" because of the weight, they tend to slide down unless you have some way to clamp them. We pre-marked the bolt holes on the wood using the OWT as a template, and then drilled starter holes to make the actual installation process easier. Just be sure to separately purchase the accent plates to provide a finished look.

Heavy Duty Bracket
This is an attractive heavy duty bracket with a nice finish. I ordered from Home Depot for pickup at the store. The box had been destroyed during transporation so the matching colored screws were all missing - just the plastic bag remained.
