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?

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Robust design This 4x4 adjustable post base is a robust design. Heavy duty 3/4" threaded post is welded to a heavy gauge 'u' shaped plate. The plate is pre drilled for a thru bolt and/or fasteners. Hot-Dip galvanized for a good, durable finish in the outdoor enviroment. Includes 1 Nut & 1 heavy gauge washer. We are using to set 6 PT fir posts for a small enclosure. Forms a precise fit on a 4x4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for fine-tuning level on decks! I have used these for years, and am VERY pleased with performance, ease of installation and adjustment, and versatility. I built 'floating' unattached decks on our home and my parents' place with these adjustable post/beam holders, and have been able to make occasional adjustments to level as needed in areas where ground settled slightly. I have worked on mobile/manufactured home sets, and use a similar pier-building method. Clear away all vegetation down to undisturbed soil, scrape out a level area at least 16 inches by 16 inches, lay down a 16x16 by 4" thick concrete pad, set dry-stack pier of cross-stacked 8x8x16 hollow-core concrete block as needed to bring up elevation, cap with 2" thick concrete pad, add pier block and drop in the holder. (If you have problems getting your pier site perfectly level, you can dump some pea gravel in the hole, compact it, then set that first concrete pad and wiggle it a little until it is level.) Just build up your level footing piers, add a pier block, drop in an adjustable holder (crank it down to the lowest possible elevation so you have room to go up if necessary,) and start setting your beams. Adjust the level as needed while you are working on the beam framing, and you are good to go! If you are building a ground-floor deck that would otherwise require support posts due to elevation, you can avoid posting by building piers and then carefully adding back-fill (soil or mulch) around the piers. (NEVER set piers on new, soft fill material!) A big advantage of using these holders is that you are able to make repeated adjustments to level even tho working ALONE! It really helps when you don't have any help!
