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!
Don’t know about 7x7. I used 8x8 rough sawn red cedar and they worked and look perfect!
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.
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
whoa . . .OWT literature states these may be used for pergolas. yet, the OWT answer here says they are recommended for fences only!!! what give?
No, the set cannot be used with patio stone.
Yes, and you'll probably need to shim the base to get it dead-level unless your mounting surface is already there.
