18-Gauge ZMAX Galvanized 2X Rigid Tie Connector is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! should be offered in stores! Only issue I... Great Product! should be offered in stores! Only issue I found while using this product is squaring my angles up perfectly. It's hard due to the fact that the angle is not one piece leaving room for play on either end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good brackets Nice brackets, though expensive. You can buy them in workbench kit of 8 with screws included, and that is what I recommend over buying them singly. It is cheaper that way. I used mine to build an aquarium stand (see picture). These are galvanized, so if you paint them you can't use most spray paint without a special primer. I used acrylic latex paint, which is supposed to work with galvinized metal. It took about 3-4 coats.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These things are great I have a number of shelving units I made with these and the previous design (that I think are sturdier) and they can take a lot of weight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really? The product is good. I've used them before. The price varies wildly, from expensive to ridiculous.
