Great product but a bit highly priced.
Great product, a little high in price but structurally the best support for your deck beams or post and beam setup.

These are not TRUE 8X8 in. Actually 7.5x7.5 in. I needed these for 8x8 cedar posts for my back porch. The cedar posts are true 8x8 inches, therefore I had to do some creative metal bending. This was OK because I will be covering the lower part of the post with stone veneer. The metal base will not be seen for my project.

The only problem was the 8" x 8" posts that were used were true 8" x 8" post from a treated lumber yard that the post was not a true 8" x 8". I made it work

Response from Simpson Strong-TieApr 15, 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 8x8 post measures 7-1/2" x 7-1/2". The ABU88Z will fit a nominal 8x8 post. A rough sawn 8x8 post that is not S4S typically measures a net 8" x 8" and an ABU88RZ 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

    I designed my deck to be "baby elephant worthy" and used these fittings to install my 8x8 support posts for my deck. Mission accomplished !
