Questions & Answers

When this is embedded in concrete, how is it adjustable?

Asked by: Dave
This product needs to be floating so you can adjust the nut. Not sure why "Simpson Strong" suggested putting into wet concrete. That negates the whole point of the product, which is to be adjustable. This is to be floated in dried (hard) cement. You can usually buy a cement pier (pre-poured) at Home Depot with a hole the perfect size for this product.

Do you have to screw the post base unto the hole existing in the concrete pier blocks or can you hammer them in?

Asked by: Oakie
Slides right in, snug.

Can the EPB44PHDG be used with concrete pier blocks without set epoxy?

Planning on using 6 sets of the concrete pier blocks with these post bases but not sure if the nut and washer would be sufficient to hold up a 10x12 deck without epoxy.
Asked by: chinnokyo
Yes if the code doesn't require it. My use was without epoxy allowing for adjustment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like a charm! I used this to shore up a sagging deck. The ability to use a crescent wrench to slowly work the deck back to level was easy on the back and the mind. I highly recommend these for this purpose. They fit perfect on a pressure treated 4x4.
