What product can you recommend to use for fencing?

Asked by: Blitzd13
This works very well for your fence if you are setting them in cement first. In stead of pouring cement around the post

I would like to use these as a base for an 8ft post for a canopy and base for a hammock. If placed in concrete will this product be able with stand the weight of the hammock? and with stand holding the canopy with gust of wind? Just don't want a base that is easily pulled out of the ground/concrete.

We provide the *allowable load capacities of our connectors, but it would be up to the Designer/ Engineer of Record to specify the appropriate connector based on the demand loads of the specific application, local building codes, etc. *Please visit strongtie.com or the current Wood Construction Connectors catalog for allowable loads. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from well made product This post base is does what it is intended to to. It is designed to be set into poured concrete. It is not intended to be in a fence or mailbox application. It is intended to be used in combination with other posts/ colunms and bracing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not recommended for non top-supported installations Easy to use, but WOBBLY. I wasn't aware that these were a bad idea to use for a trellis until I I was half done with the build and noticed it swaying in the wind. The information posted here: "Not recommended for non top-supported installations" was not posted in my local Home Depot store where I purchased them. They were merely piled up in a torn-up box with a price tag below. If I wasn't a construction bone-head, I may have known better…. These are probably fine for whatever they're intended for, and they look sturdy, but for those doing fences, trellises, etc., they're not going to provide a very stable base.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Make sure you read the description. This is NOT for fences. Unfortunately, I failed to see that in the product description, bad on me. Something that looks like it's made for fencing and is available in the regular store (which is where I bought it) is definitely not for fencing. It probably works fine,, as the description says, if you use it for a carport or something, but for regular fencing, it's definitely wobbly- not solid at all. On top of that, it's only intended for pressure treated lumber- does not fit with cedar- meaning that you have to trim or sand the 4x4's before you put them in. Just be aware of what this product is and what it's not.
