The technical specs looks to me like they say 6 1/16", but standard 6X6 lumber is really 5 1/2". ...

They are designed to fit a great variety of wood sizes. That's why they are sectional and the plates can slide in and out to accommodate your lumber size. For example the top is specified for a 3 by 2x6 but I used it on 6x6 post with 6x6 beam (nominal).
Easy to install on 6x6 by 8 feet posts. I am building a 12 x 20 feet pergola. Very sturdy, and very forgiving when things are not 100% level or plumb. Very hard to find though, had to get them shipped from Texas to the mid Atlantic. I compared/priced out building the pergola with Simpson strongtie and Osco, and it is more affordable to use this line of products, plus there is more variety and specialized connections.
