Questions & Answers

Could these be used to make raised garden beds?

Could these be used to make raised garden beds?
Asked by: KRArkansas
Garden beds would typically be built with lumber that has been pressure treated and is suitable for ground contact. Galvanized metal coatings react poorly with some of the chemicals used in process for pressure treating wood, so would not be recommended for this purpose.

Could you use this to connect two 2x6 beams at a corner, resting on top of a 4x4 post?
Asked by: Craig
No, but they make a different version compatible with 4x4s that you could use 2x6s with for the sides. Model #RTC42

Will these work in a 2x2 setup? George
Asked by: Shelver
Oh, you could attach a 2x2 to this, but you won't be happy with the results. The exposed edges of the tie connector will maim someone, eventually.

Customer Reviews

18-Gauge ZMAX Galvanized 2X Rigid Tie Connector is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from quick and easy project I have always made my own platform bed frames out of 2x4's because I like to store big plastic totes under the bed. The last one was quite an involved structure that took me forever and I wanted to make something quick and easy this time. Cue these brackets. I had the donor project disassembled, the pieces re-cut and put back together as a queen size bed frame with an OSB platform in less than 3 hours using nothing but my impact driver and cordless circular saw right there in the bedroom. It was square with very little effort and it is rock solid with a minimal amount of wood. I also am in love with the Simpson wafer head screws. I thought they might be a gimmick, but they really do make installation a breeze compared to my old standby of drywall screws. The time saved and frayed nerves that they prevented made up for the increased cost. No one will ever guess what brutally practical hardware lurks underneath the bed skirt.
