Product Overview

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.

We use hot-dipped galvanized material for all OWT products. They are then powder-coated to prevent rust, or corrosion. You won't have any problems with it. Enjoy!

Asked by DeckProject September 27, 2018

I didn't use J bolts as the concrete had already been poured. I drilled 4 holes in the concrete and used expanding anchors and lag bolts to secure each plate. I'm not sure how far the J bolt should extend above the concrete. The heads of the lag bolts, when tightened, did not leave much room between the bolt head and post. I would say you need to leave the thickness of the nut and about about another 3/8" - This is based on my somewhat calibrated eye ball. If you can get your hands on a base plate you can set it in something flat and get a better measurement. Be aware that the corner holes in the plate are about 1/4" (That was the largest lag bolt I could fit.) All this is moot if you plan on using the center hole on the plate to anchor it. (Not sure of diameter of the center hole) I wasn't comfortable going that route as the concrete had been poured and I wanted a four point attachment.

Sorry, still confused. Do they adjust down enough to fit 7.1/4” x 7.1/4” finished sized posts.

I BOUGHT THIS FOR USE IN CONNECTICUT PROPERTY. THE BASE KIT IS VERY STRONG AND STURDY SO I WOULD ASSUME IT'S CODE GOOD FOR SC, BUT AS LONG AS IT'S NOT USED FOR TOO LONG AND WEIGHT A POST. I USED IT FOR A 6X6 CEDER POST AND 5 FEET HEIGHT, NO LOAD ON TOP. HOPE THIS HELPS.

I need to anchor this base to existing concrete. What do I use to accomplish this and what size?

Asked by Jen July 5, 2018

Answers

either anchor with tapcon screws with washers or red head anchors to fit holes probably 3/8" if you use the red heads you might have to drill holes in your post or cut off threaded shaft above nut

Yes, and you'll probably need to shim the base to get it dead-level unless your mounting surface is already there.

KCWeekendWarriors here in KC specializing in deck, pregolas and covered structures. First time using this product. They are a little pricey but when you factor in the time and cost of a standard galvanized cleat that more than likely has to be wrapped in something decorative you've saved time and money by just using this already finished product. Substantial in weight, easy to put together and I have to say the 2 day delivery from Home Depot was spot on. We will be using more of these along with the suite of other products this company is making.

Installed these using rough sawn true 6"x6" white oak post that we picked up from a local saw mill. Used the ready seal dark walnut stain and they look awesome. A little pricey but worth the money. Anchored the plate to concrete and screwed the plates on. Very stable and simple t install. Ordered online from Home Depot and received them the next day!

It was a little surprising at first to open the package and realize that the wood columns are connected to the base plate with 4 plates that slip over tabs. The reason becomes more clear right away because this design allows the column to be held snuggly on all 4 sides not matter what the dimensional irregularities may be with your wood. No shaving of the wood or installing spacers to get a snug fit on all four sides. The crews keep a larger lag bolt look with the covers, but can be installed easily with a standard screw gun. See the finished look in the attached pictures.

So I researched and looked at many different ways to anchor an 8x8 post to concrete, which after the many reviews and shopping around, this appeared to meet all the needs. The price point was great, if not at the same as the typical simpson or other generic silver-style post anchor, but this was better because it was black, decorative, powder coated and thick metal. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that I wish they sold the entire kit to include the actual anchor bolt that goes into the concrete, so i wouldn't have to figure out which one to use based on the diameter of the hole in the kit itself. As for aesthetics, these look great! My posts sizes varied and these easily accommodated my true 8x8 post, but i see how it has wiggle room to fit smaller 8x8 (7.5x7.5)posts as well. again, easy to put on and very attractive. But the price is what got me... same price as a simple metal look anchor, but this offers more flexibility and aesthetics.

excellent product... quality steel and welding. Easy to use and squaring up the posts was a cinch. Was even able to easily drill out the single middle hole for power and use the 4 smaller holes for anchoring to the patio on one of the corner posts. Pricey but time saving and finished look makes it worth while.

Good fit and finish. Seem like the finish should hold up well. Sturdy post connection. Easy to install, aside from drilling into concrete - I used 4 in long, 3/8" concrete fasteners and hit rebar 2 out of 4 holes. Lucky, I guess. The only gripe I have is the price - but they sure are pretty...
