Product Overview

  • Designed to mount posts to concrete, stone or wood subfloors
  • Comes with all mounting hardware for ease of installation
  • Powder coated steel construction
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.
  • Fits all standard 6 in. x 6 in. from 5.5 in. up to 6 in. sq.
  • Can be mounted to concrete, wood, stone or oz-post (surface mounting hardware not included)
  • Includes hardware for attaching base to post for standard installations
  • 3/16 in. thick hot dipped galvanized and power coated steel
  • Raised base keeps wood post elevated from ground contact
  • Recommended for pergolas, decks, veranda posts, pavilions, arbors and railings

Questions & Answers

It appears the base plate elevates the post. How high does it elevate the post?

Asked by: Chris
Mine were attached to a concrete slab so it was flat to the ground. The contractor used a concrete bit and the 6x6 cedar post fit flush. I think he drilled a little out of the middle of the post when one didn't go in as far as he wanted.

I am using this base to mount a 14X10 ft pergola onto a concrete patio. What type and size of concrete anchors will I need? Can I use concrete screws?
Asked by: Pergola
My contractor used a concrete bit that went in the middle of this. I think it was 1/2 inch. The other 4 screw holes are for attaching to a wooden deck.

Lateral Strength

How well do these add to lateral pressure on the posts? I'm building a pergola but will need to finish the work in phases. Can these bases keep a 9' or 10' secure standing alone? Also I was going to buy some earlier this week and even had it sitting in my online cart. Now HD is out of online stock. Is more coming?
Asked by: Coastiepike
I had (4) 8 ft (6x6) standing with just these bases holding them up earlier this summer (2016) for about a week; no issues. We also did not have any significant weather during that period.

The quality of the brackets was exceptional. Strong sturdy and great looking. Well worth the money. Easy to assemble great packaging and directions are included. So happy I went with these.

One thing I would point out though, is the insert caps have a hex head slot for insert and removal in the decorative nut. This is made from a light weight “pot” metal that can strip out easily.

They securely hold the posts of our attached pergola. May not work as well for free standing pergola (?). Please consider, if you plan on having a railing system, you may have to modify this post base(?).
