Can this be used to mount the hinge post of a 4’ wide gate?

Asked by: AndyR
I would think that would work as long as the gate is normal weight

I'd like to use this to secure fence posts on the edge of an existing concrete slab. Is there a recommendation for how far from the edge of the concrete slab to use this in order to avoid splitting/cracking the slab? I'd like it to be as close to the edge as possible.
Asked by: Allan
Instead of using an expansion bolt, consider a fastener like the Simpson Titen Concrete Screw; it puts far less stress on the concrete than an expansion bolt would. The Simpson Strong-Tie Titen HD 1/2 in. x 3 in. Zinc-Plated Heavy-Duty Screw Anchor (25-Pack) Model# THD50300H should be suitable. I am not a professional and this is not a design, scheme, or plan.

There are numerous comments that a 4 x 4 post will not fit into this without a sledge hammer ( and the wood likely weakening the joint / squared corners when doing so ). Will I need to sand or trim each 4 x 4 post to fit into this product ( assuming they are off the rack 4 x 4 posts from Home Depot ) ? Also, it appears there is no standoff at the bottom, thus the wood will soak up water and eventually weaken or rot. Will a Simpson Strong-Tie 4 in. x 4 in. Composite Plastic Standoff ( Model # CPS4 Internet #100375102 Store SKU #825326 ) - fit into this product ?
Asked by: Homer
A 4x4 is only 4x4 right after it is milled; after drying it is closer to 3.5x3.5. Simpson knows what they are doing, so the base might be a snug fit, but it should not be impossible. If you are really concerned you could set up a table saw to make a VERY shallow cut on all four sides for the depth that the post will sit in the base, but the advise others have given is sound and practical - use a piece of scrap wood and a mallet or small engineer's hammer to "encourage" it.

12-Gauge Black Powder-Coated E-Z Base is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 182.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made attaching 4 x 4x 8ft post on to cement a no brainer. Aloha, happened to see these on the Home Depot website as I was trying to find something to attach a 4 X 4 X 8 ft post to cement. BTW they are dark green, I was only able to get 5 of the ten I needed at the local store, so ordered another 5. when I got to the store they discovered they had two more, inventory control, a little sloppy. I ordered the five on parcel shipping, no charge for shipping, I guess they include it in shipments to the store, but I was surprised when they delivered to my house. Great, didn't have to drive to the store to pick them up. Used a Black and Decker heavy duty corded drill. and a 3/8 masonry bit, of course drilling into cement a not the easiest thing to do. Discovered that the holes in the base were not exactly correct, but buy tying each position I found a close fit to the bolts( I used 3/8 x 3in anchor bolts). The 4 X 4 slipped easily in the base and tightened the clamp bolts and have a solid post for mounting a 2 X X 20 ft board to three posts.

We’ve built a pool and installed the fence on the edge of the concrete. These fit the application perfectly and they look great. Very strong. My only complaint is the label. Need them to peel off easier. More time doing that off than installing them.
