The Simpson strong tie post base was ideal for nominal 6x6 treated posts. However it was difficult to find 5/8 inch J anchor bolts, so I ended up using standard 5/8 x 10 inch galvanized bolts as anchors in the concrete foundation. HomeDepot should really carry the 5/8 inch J anchor bolts.

    The product is heavy duty. The metal was thick enough that I was able to weld them in order to mount them vertical which was needed for my application.

      Absolutely awesome product for joining post to concrete. I bought 11 of these, and the rigidity of the post after securing, nailing, and thru-bolts is amazing. Like the 1” offset that will help protect the post from water damage.

      Product very study and came well packaged. Only complaint is the width of the standoff was closer to 5.75 inches versus 6.00 inches. Ended up shaving off about 1/4 inch to make it fit with my post. Used the recommended heat treated nails to attach to the post, and added in a couple Simpson Strong support braces for the two open sides. Worked well, just wish the dimensions were truly 6 x 6.

      This is advertised as NOMINAL, which is what I needed as J had rough sawn Timbers. It should be advertised as ACTUAL. The bracket you want for nominal 6x6 is ABU66RZ (this is ABU66Z)

      Response from Simpson Strong-TieApr 14, 2022
      Hello Home Depot Customer, this is Colin from Simpson Strong-Tie. It seems we look at the term nominal in different ways. Simpson refers to nominal lumber that is machined and surfaced four sides (S4S). So a nominal 6x6 post measures 5-1/2" x 5-1/2". The ABU66Z will fit this nominal 6x6 post. A rough sawn post that is not S4S typically measures a net 6" x 6" and an ABU66RZ would fit this post. I am sorry for any confusion this may have caused. If you have any further questions please call us at 800-999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you.​ SimpsonStrongTie
