Does Redi Base make a plastic footing for a larger cement tube, for instance a 12" or 14" tube. ...

This works for 12” tube. Also, burying the post in the concrete isn’t the preferred method for posts these days.

How many 60 lbs bags of cement required to fill base.

Around 3 bags

Do these need to be set as deep as straight columns?

Yes, they need to go below the frost line in your area.

I was thinking about using these for vinyl fence posts I'm going to be starting in my yard. Will this product work?

Yes but at least you can use a 12" tube and keep your posts out of the ground.

I don't recommend with 12" dia tubes!
I tried using these with 12" dia form tubes exactly as instructed, cutting off every other tab, and 2 of the remaining tabs snapped off as the tube was inserted, making it unusable! On the second one I even heated it up first in the sun to make it more pliable, and two of the tabs still cracked part way through, but I was able to duct tape it together well enough to use. I then bought a competitor's base which is much sturdier. The attached picture shows both side by side with the same size tubes.

The base worked out great, I didn't follow the instructions exactly as they said in the instructions. I used the 12" sonotube and the instructions said to cut-out every other tab. Guess this would make it easier to insert the tube. Instead I used a heat gun on the tabs and slipped the tube up leaving all the tabs for better support. It worked great.

Definitely needs to be warmed to install on the 12" tubes. Need two people for the largest diameter (12.5") tubes. Did the job though. Overall happy with the product. I would use again.

Worth it. Larger code compliant footer with smaller 12" pier. Helps to get everything lined up, after using a mini excavator on some holes due to rocks. Backfill holes of any shape and size and verify location as you fill. Then it's an easy pour with ready mix.

The first 2 I used worked as expected but the 3rd and 4th both broke when sliding them over the 12” tube. Was able to add a couple extra screws and some extra tape to get the job done.
